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.

A new Crochet A-Long this time with PlanetJune Designs.

Well June, of PlanetJune fame, has announced on Ravelry and her blog about her next Crochet -A-Long (CAL). her last one was the Groundhog Along which went supper well. Now it is Daffodils and Tiny Whales! Yeah these are adorable!


A CAL is most fun when lots of people join in, so if you’re participating, please feel free to blog, tweet, etc about it, and tell all your friends who crochet! And feel free to grab a copy of the Spring CAL button for your blog:

Spring CAL Rules:
  • The CAL will run from Monday (April 19) until the end of May, to give everyone plenty of time to make one or both patterns
  • A CAL is most fun when lots of people join in, so if you’re participating, please feel free to blog about it, post in other groups, etc (I’ll be making a button this weekend that you can add to your blog if you want - ETA see button at the top of this post!)
  • Share, share, share! If you’ve made a whale or daffodil already, add it to the group here for inspiration! And remember to add your CAL projects too and post about them here in this thread :

Crochet your own daffodils – perfect for spring! Make a bouquet of yarn flowers, or try one in thread as a beautiful pin or accessory. The pattern includes two different designs for petals and centres – mix and match colours and designs to create your own custom bouquet!

This little whale is the perfect size to sit in the palm of your hand! But even better than that: he’s crocheted all in one piece, so there’s no sewing involved to make him!
