Hi, my name is Cora. I am a beginner designer and have a few patterns published at Cora Shaw on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/designers/cora-shaw). I am married to a wonderful man. We are owned by 3 cats (Patches, Snowball & Pumpkin) as well as 3 dogs (Molly, Leo and Bear). I am dealing with End Stage Renal Failure and currently on dialysis.
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 I came across this amazing Amigurumi Designer, Dawn Toussaint.
She is both a knitter and crocheter like me! How cool is that? She has five patterns available for free Manuel the Monkey, Padma the Elephant a, Murray the Reindeer (Christmas), Belfry the Bat (Halloween) and now Roman the Love Bird (for Valentine's Day. Manuel and Padma are available in 4 parts on her blog. Murray and Roman are available in pdf form. This young woman is all over. She has a Facebook page, a twitter account, a Ravelry Shop, an Etsy Shop and a blog!
