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.

NEW: Beware of Haiti Earthquake Scams

In the wake of the earthquake in Haiti, we wanted to remind you that whenever there is a major natural or other disaster, scammers begin sending out charity relief scams and other scams almost immediately.  We've created a special update on what scams abound and how to protect yourself from Haiti earthquake scams here.

Please remember to donate with a reputable company, such as the American/Canadian Red Cross, The Salvation Army P/Hop (more information on the top right side of the post) or one of your own choosing.  Many cell phone companies are allowing you to text an amount through your phone...in the  US, Text HAITI to 90999 or Yele to 501501, in Canada text text message "Haiti" to 45678 to contribute $5 to the Salvation Army's relief effort. They will then receive a follow-up text asking for confirmation, and must text back 'yes' in order for the donation to go through. Also in Canada, Rogers and Fido customers can also donate by sending the text message "HELP" to 1291.
