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.

Water Tower Pencil Cozy Video

What can 32 miles of yarn do? Promote design education AND help the homeless.

Artist Robyn Love and a team of 7 amazing crocheters created this amazing Water Tower Cozy -- installed on top of a New York City building to promote the D&AD (a design education non-profit) Pencil Awards -- with 32 miles of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick AND only 3 weeks!

After it was taken down, the cozy traveled to the annual Knit-Out & Crochet event at the Mall of America, where volunteers took apart the panels to make blankets for the homeless. Click here to watch the video!
