ballostring design

I’m back!

I never thought I’d say this but I’m back to playing with yarn and loving it! My friend Pamela took up knitting about a year ago and at times I was envious. I convinced myself that there wouldn’t be enough time to paint if I started crocheting again. Winter is in sight and I went to shop for a scarf last week. I couldn’t find one I liked and then I remembered  . . I could make one!

Well a week later here I am blogging about it. I rebuilt my website and yes, my painting has suffered a tad. But oh well. I’m having fun and I’m totally distracted from life stuff. Yes, that’s one of the benefits of working with yarn!
I crocheted these fingerless gloves for my son’s girlfriend who is having a birthday soon (they are named after her). Here’s an image of the pattern. It’s so simple!

If you click on the “all patterns” link you’ll see the available patterns that I have. Some old, some new, some free. I’m busy updating the site. Please be patient and bookmark it!

Of minor interest: If it wasn’t for The Wayback Machine, an internet archive, I don’t think I would have had the patience to set up my website again since I didn’t save all the files. I was able to retrieve the general layout that I had a few years back. I also was able to grab some of my old blog posts which I’ve added below.

Formerly known as ballostringdesigns – I had to take the s off the end because the domain no longer is available.
