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 really cool Blog called Knit a Neuron....

This is what they do:

Knit a Neuron


Welcome to the Knit a Neuron blog. Here you can find out all about the project and who's behind it, along with knitting and crochet patterns.

Knit a Neuron is a collaborative, knitting, art project. We want you to pick up your needles and hooks to creates hundreds of woolly brain cells. We'll sew them all together to create a fabulous brainy artwork. Once it's done, the woolly brain will go on tour to raise funds for the Head Injury Therapy Endowment Fund and will have a permanent home in the University of Bristol's brain imaging centre, CRIC (Clinical Research Imaging Centre) opening later this year.

Want to make your very own brain cell? Follow the two-needle, four-needle or crochet instructions, make a brain cell and send it in!

These are great patterns as they don't use much yarn, size and gauge aren't critical and they can be any colour you like. Go on, dive into the stash and get the hooks out.

Once you've made a neuron (or three!) send it in to
Dr Anne Cooke
Bristol Neuroscience
University of Bristol
Bristol, BS8 4PJ

Here is there link to the blog and the have 3 patterns for a neuron, a 4-needle knitting,  a 2 needle knitting and a crochet pattern.  Please check them out as it is a worthwhile cause.  I wonder if there is a similar cause here in Canada. I cannot believe how many people I know who have been Brain Injured over the years. If anyone knows of one for Canada can please post it int he comments?

Thanks

Cora
