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.

Bernat® Knit and Crochet for Breast Cancer includes 4 patterns available for a limited time.

Bernat® Knit and Crochet for Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a serious concern for each and every one of us. An estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. during 2009.(1) Keeping yourself educated and healthy is an important first step in reducing your risk of breast cancer. This Breast Self-Awareness reference from Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is an excellent resource. If you have any questions or concerns about your health, don't hesitate to ask your doctor. Affecting the lives of women and men globally, breast cancer not only impacts the individuals living with the disease, but their families, friends, and loved ones as well. It is possible to do something about breast cancer.

It is important to recognize the heroism of so many men and women who have fought breast cancer. One of the best ways we can recognize and honor their fight is to work towards a cure. It's up to each and every one of us to make a difference.

Collection Display As knitters and crocheters, there is a way we can do what we love and make a difference at the same time - Bernat® is proud to introduce the Knit & Crochet for Breast Cancer collection, available at participating ACMoore, JoAnns, Michaels, Walmart Canada and Zellers – while quantities last. Bernat® is contributing $10,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® through the purchase of the yarn in the Knit & Crochet for Breast Cancer collection from August 15 - November 15, 2009. For more information about Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, breast health or breast cancer, visit www.komen.org or call 1-877 GO KOMEN. A portion of the Bernat® contribution will be directed to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

New Free Patterns in Limited-Time-Only Shades

These four new patterns are available for free download today. Each one is knit or crocheted with the yarn in the Bernat® Knit & Crochet for Breast Cancer Collection. Visit your local participating ACMoore, JoAnns, Michaels, Walmart Canada and Zellers to buy the yarns in the collection.
