About Me

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.

A modular knit bag inspired by a level of ninjatown, a cute tower defense game for the nintendo ds. gauge is not critical, size shown uses less than one ball of 3 colors sugar and cream, size is easily modified.

skills required: garter stitch, picking up stitches, i-cord bind off, i-cord, seaming.

For more information, see: http://peanutbutteryelleytime.wordpress.com/patterns/windmill-bag/

The construction is simialr to another pattern that is crocheted.

Inga's Haekelbeutel

by Inga Joana Mertens

Website is in German and pattern or images may have been archived (2005), however a PDF version is still available:


Errata noted by flamingo8228: “It seems to me there’s a mistake in the English version of the pattern. I’m pretty sure there’s an extra Ch 3 in round 2. I think Round 2 should read: Ch 3, 2 dc, 2 dc through chain, Ch 3, 2 dc through chain, 3 dc, (no Ch 3 here) 2 dc through chain, Ch3, 2 dc through chain, 3 dc, 2 dc through chain, etc…”
