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.

Some cute baskets and other ideas from Hooked on Crochet...

Good Morning Crocheters, 
 
Buying a house is a great time in one's life and to give a housewarming gift is a special gesture. This is something to make them feel at home and to get them started. Here we have some great housewarming gifts as well as easy crochet placemat patterns.

These crochet stash baskets are really nice to make as a housewarming gift. They can easily hold little nic nacs around the house. You can even use it as a fruit basket to display.

Happy Crocheting,

P.S. Learn some crochet tips your mother never told you, including going to the library and getting some ideas, not being afraid to try new things and many more. 



 
 
    Crochet a matching place mat, napkin holder and coaster to lay out for your company. These are nice for the spring season.  
 
    Using contrasting colors you can add a little style and flavor to your dining room or kitchen. These placemats can be neatly gift-wrapped and given.
