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.

So I came across these on Ravelry...warning NSFW :-)

Well as you know I like to have challenging patterns. I am late to the whole "sock craze" however I realized that hand knit socks are the only way I am going to handle the summer. Store bought socks really dig into my legs and ankles, due in large to the edema that I deal with as a result of the renal failure.

The other thing I am dealing with is poor memory as my kidney is not removing all the toxins in my brain. I turn 46 in a couple of weeks and I find that my memory is going. I used to memorize pages of music for singing as well as for my training for office administration. The one the specialist said was to keep my mind active, so I do that by knitting or crochet designs that challenge or interest me.

What has interested me lately is amigurumi and toys. So I been knitting and crocheting anything that is dachshund related, probably because DH and I adopted Leo ;-P

So now I have decided to knit some socks. A couple of years go I was knitting a sock called the PENISPOOPCAKEWAFFLE Sock. It was designed by Wendy Polhammer aka ZaftigWendy. She designed another sock called Naughty Pine. The PenisPoopCakeWaffle Sock has a cuff with 7 penises. The Naughty Pine has vagina place along the sock. So I plan to have fun with these :-)

I had tried the PENISPOOPCAKEWAFFLE Sock a few years ago. I was almosr finished when I discovered they were to small for me. Thank goodness I enjoy the process along
