About Me

My photo

I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

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.

Arggg the Babydoll Dress

Well almost all finished with the Babydoll Dress by Amy O'Neill Houck, when I went to try it on. I have gained a bit of weight, okay a lot of weight, between now and when I started last December. I had to undue all the work that I did. I have changed hook sizes and I am working in it again to see if that will help. I am adjusting the pattern to the waist fall 5" form my bust line, crocheting with a 5.mm hook, then switching to 5.5 mm and continue with the length.

These are the before pictures:

I am going to have to work my fingers to the bone as I wanted to wear the dress to the wedding in Saturday! We leave on Tuesday to go to Niagara Falls, so I have tonight and tomorrow and on the flight.
