Hi, my name is Cora. I am a beginner designer and have a few patterns published at Cora Shaw on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/designers/cora-shaw). I am married to a wonderful man. We are owned by 3 cats (Patches, Snowball & Pumpkin) as well as 3 dogs (Molly, Leo and Bear). I am dealing with End Stage Renal Failure and currently on dialysis.
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.

Missing Toronto teen possibly seen in northwestern Alberta By Karen Kleiss, Edmonton Journal December 4, 2009 6:37 PM
EDMONTON — Alberta police say a missing Toronto teen may be in the Grande Prairie area, 450 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
Grande Prairie RCMP Cpl. Carol McKinley said police received an unconfirmed, uncorroborated tip that Mariam Makhniashvili, 18, was seen at a local hotel around 9:40 a.m. on Wednesday.
They relayed the tip to Toronto police, who asked them to release the information to the public on Friday.
"We are asking locals to familiarize themselves with the poster (of Makhniashvili), and should they feel that they have seen this individual, to contact CrimeStoppers," McKinley said.
Makhniashvili, an introverted model student, was last seen Sept. 14 around 8:30 a.m. in the area near Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue in Toronto's west end. She was walking with her brother, 14, to their high school, Forest Hill Collegiate.
Toronto police interviewed hundreds of students at Mariam's school, searched neighbourhoods, parks and ravines near her home, but found few clues.
On Oct. 9, investigators found her backpack, and on Oct. 27 — her 18th birthday — they seized and searched 27 public access computers from libraries she was believed to have visited before she went missing.
The same day, someone matching the young woman's description was seen in Okotoks, Alta., a bedroom community 45 kilometres south of Calgary and more than 3,500 kilometres from Toronto.
Business owners said the woman in Okotoks who looked like Makhniashvili — but had blond hair, not brown — was trying to sell dream catchers and other craft items. She was alone.
