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.

The Vancouver Sun does it again...a thorouhg investigation of the Highway of Tears in BC.  It was the Vancouver Sun who first investigated the 69 missing women from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, the poorest postal code in Canada, however it is the richest in community spirit.

Please check out the Vancouver Sun's intensive investigation on the website called Vanished. IF anyone knows anything please contact Crime Stoppers

The so-called Highway of Tears case originally focused on a lonely stretch of tarmac between Prince Rupert and Prince George and involved nine cases. The number was doubled to 18 in October 2007.

The oldest case of girls and women who went missing or were murdered dates back to 1969. The most recent involves a teenager found dead in Prince George in 2006.

The RCMP's list was also expanded geographically, to include unsolved cases along other major highways in B.C. and Alberta, including those leading to Hudson's Hope, Kamloops, Merritt, and 100 Mile House, as well as extending as far as Hinton, Alta.

A Vancouver Sun investigative team has uncovered a series of other unsolved cases involving women going missing or being found dead along B.C. and Alberta highways, which appear to share characteristics with the Highway of Tears victims. Here, then, is a look at more than 30 unsolved cases of girls and women who were murdered or went missing along a highway over the last 40 years.
