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.

I came across a couple of interesting tweets on twitter today...

regarding Brian Mason, MLA for Edmonton Highland-Norwood. I say interesting because the issues of Omar Khadar (sp?) are complex...not black or white at all.

So this arrived actually on my FB page first, then I decided maybe I need to follow him and see what is going on...

Then this one was in my search feed...


Here is the the video that he is referring to.


I am going to include some links and highlights about this young man who has been called a terrorist...it is not just about The War on Terror, it is about the rights of citizens. many people were "arrested" and held without   a timely trial by the US under the Bush regime, yes I said regime. It is shameful how this young man who in Canada would have been tried under the Young Offenders Act, instead the 14 yr old boy was held at Guantanamo Bay  without representation, family or any support. He didn't have a chance in hell of anything. His father was up high on the Al Qaeda leadership.

Please read the Wiki for more information

Also this is quite interesting...Omar Khadr as Child Soldier

This is from Global Edmonton News:
