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.

Some cute squirrel #amigurumi on the internet and Ravelry

I have been looking at squirrel patterns lately...hubby loves them ever since the movie "Up". If you have seen the movie you will understand the squirrel reference.

I have fallen in love with this guy, he is adorable! Combines both music and the Squirrel.


1) Squirrel playing a Piano Trunk Amigurumi Crochet Pattern by HandmadeKitty (aka Jenny Lloyd)

Youll need:
3mm hook

Isn't he cute? Just love the piano!

2) Squirrel by Barbara Prime (aka FuzzyMitten)

Squirrel-Festive Knits

Squirre
From the website: Worsted weight yarn is used for the body, and eyelash yarn with a long fringe makes the tail. Turtleneck pullover also knit from worsted weight yarn. Pattern for slippers can be found on my blog. This toy is included in Festive Knits, but comes with a pattern for overalls, rather than the pullover.
