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.

January is Stalking Awareness Month

Stalking is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear. Visit www.stalkingawarenessmonth.org for more information.

January is Stalking Awareness Month, if you know that fear of the phone ringing (could be that annoying guy/gal again), the unmistakable feeling of being watched or followed. The same individual joins the same forums, social networking sites (Facebook, twitter, Classmates.com) or your blog-this is known as cyber stalking. They can run the gambit of being just annoying (nuisance calls) to feeling threatened.

Whatever the feeling remember to know it, name it, then stop it!


Stalking Awareness Month
Keep a written record of all incidents, a call of of all phone calls. If you are being cyber stalked screen shot everything, keep all emails-as both the original, in print form with headers visible, and as a screen shot. Most email programs have the ability to show the headers, if you are unsure contact your email provider. On you blog makes sure comments are set to moderate this way you get all header information.

Make sure you report everything to your local police station. Keep the case number hand for all subsequent phone calls to the police. Make sure there is a paper trail!
