About Me

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.

Found this on Ravelry....what a great philosophy!

Go On With Your Knittin’
(Unknown Irish Poet) 


When the folks next to you act like those in the zoo
A grumblin’, growlin’ and spittin’
It’s a pretty good plan
To be as calm as you can
And do something useful—like knittin’.
When a gossipin’ Susan with poison barbed tongue
Comes into the room where you’re sittin’
And starts to defame
Some neighbor’s good name
Count your stitches out loud and keep knittin’.
When there’s been a slight misunderstandin’ at the church
And others hint broadly of quittin’
Why the very best thing
You can do is to sing
And stay at your post and keep knittin’.
When Satan moves in with his cohorts of sin
Say, “You’ll never find me submittin’.
You irk me I find
So get thee behind
And please don’t disturb me—I’M KNITTIN!”
In the middle of problems, the big and the small
It’s always proper and fittin’
To trust and to pray
‘Til the Lord shows the way
An’ go right on ahead with your knittin’.
