lost access to /blfs-packages

Somehow I've lost access to /blfs-packages as a regular user. I have
complete freedom as su but that's bad policy. I know it has something
to do with either chmod or chown but I've tried everything i can find in
the man pages. Perhaps I need to reinstate my newbie tag :-)
I innadvertently (read stupid) downloaded a host of files as root and
recognizing my problem ran chown tcblack blah blah blah.
ls -l reveals
drw-rw-rw- 2 tcblack root 4096 Apr 29 09:00 blfs-packages
files inside the directory look like
-rw-rw-rwT 1 tcblack root 917849 Mar 31 21:30 <filename>
I ran chmod -R a+wt /blfs-packages/ as root but I still can't access the
directory (or files) as anything other than root.
Please help this poor newbie out.
