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.

EPBOT: Geek Girls, ACTIVATE!!

I had to share this story about a young 1st grader who got teased for carrying a Star Wars Water bottle to school. Please read more here. EPBOT: Geek Girls, ACTIVATE!! you leave a comment that will get passed onto Katie (the young girl in the story.

I love this quote from Yoda...
Yoda said "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering"

Truer words have never been spoke.

Not sure which water bottle is in question as there are so many out there.  These are just some of the ones I found:


 Not sure why there would such an issue over a water bottle. We need to encourage our children to be the people they were meant to be. Bullying doesn't help that it makes it worse.  This is the second story I have seen in less than a month on this. It needs to stop!

It can be found here: http://nerdyapplebottom.com/2010/11/02/my-son-is-gay/ wow some of the comments were way off base here from the other mothers. So here is a 5 yr old boy who loves Scooby Doo.  I personally think he ROCKED the costume and so what if he chose to dress up as Daphne?  It is a crazy world that we live in right now and our children are the ones who have to deal with it.

So whether it is a young girl who loves Star Wars or a young man who decides to dress up as Daphne...GET OVER IT, people! They are kids who should be able to be themselves.
