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 cozy knits and crochet designs from Patons.


Get Cozy for the Winter

Stay cozy and look good by knitting one of these two warm accessory sets! Today we're bringing you exclusive new patterns in Patons Astra and Patons Melody, as well as fantastic new shades in both yarns.
Patons Astra - Snowflake Hat and Mittens (knit)

The classic fair isle Snowflake Hat and Mittens set is a rewarding knit project that displays beautiful colorwork. This is the perfect pattern to customize to your heart's content—in adult or child sizes, as full or fingerless mitts, and with 38 shades of Patons Astra to choose from, nearly the entire family can enjoy their own personalized accessory set to keep them warm through the winter months.
Patons Astra is now available in five new shades! Three great staple solids are available: the bold teal of Oz, the rich plum of Fantasy, and the cool blue of Griffin Blue. Magic Carpet Variegated, meanwhile, features a soft variety of peach, olive green, crimson, and hot pink to create an exciting new option for scarves and hats. Wild Wizard Variegated has to be seen to be believed, made up with contrasting honey yellow, teal, green, burgundy, red, plum, and crimson—perfect for accents that pop!

Using the super-bulky weight of Patons Melody, the Slouchy Hat and Cowlis a set that knits up incredibly quick! The hat only uses one ball while the cowl uses two, so if you're looking for a fast last-minute gift then this is the perfect project. When Patons Melody is knit up it creates a soft, textured fabric that helps you stay warm and comfortable and creates a great addition to any outfit.
If you love the new shades of Patons Astra but prefer bulkier yarns, then you're in luck! Available now are the shades Fantasy, Wild Wizard Variegated, and Magic Carpet Variegated, in the super bulky "Quick & Cozy"Patons Melody.
