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.

I was on ravelry today and came across a story about a young man named Lawrence King.

Here is website dedicated to his memory. This was a hate crime pure and simple. the young man identified as being homosexual. He had been repeatedly bullied at school and nothing had been done. Please read more here. This needs to stop!



  1. Don't be so sure it was a hate crime. Why isn't it possible the other boy loved Larry and was supremely threatened by his boldness? They are both victims of an intolerant society that dictates who it is "ok" to love.

  2. Are you familiar with the whole story? If so, would you feel comfortable telling me? I a lot about bullying and hate crimes. My family has been in that situation.
