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.

Give Back with Our Charity Knit and Crochet-Along
Summer is the perfect time to make something for those in need

Image from fotoliaCharity is part of our lives so we would like to include a virtual charity event instead of our regular knit and crochet-along. Join us in giving back to others by working on a charity project together and following along on our blog, the Lion Brand Notebook.

In the next few weeks, join us as you:

  1. Pick a charity and gather materials
  2. Set your goals
  3. Share your progress with yarncrafters around the world
  4. Send off your finished contributions
