Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

My Wedding Dress

I got married on June 30 and I actually had knit my wedding dress. I used the two patterns. The tank top called "W" from Knitty, and the skirt part from the close fitting dress pattern on the Lion Brand website,

These are the colors that I used: Patton's Brilliant, Color 03143
Blue Shimmer, for the skirt.

For the top I used Bernat Handicrafter worsted weight cotton in the color 33076 Marble Print.


  1. congratulations on your wedding, And on your dress. I think it is very original for a knitter to knit her own dress for the wedding :)

  2. You are AMAZING! That is an awesome idea. Congratulations on your wedding! And I hope you enjoy your honeymoon!

  3. Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments.
