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.

Good morning everyone...here are some great knitting patterns from Favecrafts.com-

There are some really cute fun knits, afghan, bags, and wraps/shawls. My favorites are the Knit Sock Monkey which would look cute in any of the sock yarns available today. I also really like the Knit  Lace Shawl which is shown. I love bags as my hubby can attest to :) and I like back packs especially with walking Leo these days so this on looks interesting, Easy Knit Backpack or the Bobble Knit Bag as I love anything with technique, that way I don't get bored.
