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.

This is about "The Avenue" here...

118 ave (aka Alberta Ave/The Avenue) is an avenue in Central Edmonton that has faced so much since its decline in the 1970's when the Yellowhead was built. when you turned on the news it was about the seedy side of the community: the crime, the drugs the prostitution.

Well this Ave, which is currently under revitalization, is surrounded by 5 communities: Westwood, Spruce Avenue, Alberta Ave, Delton, Eastwood and Parkdale/Cromdale. The news media actually didn't even talk about the communities it was all about the crime.

This is the trailer for a movie that documents One Year in the revitalization period of the Avenue. I am proud to be a part of this. The movie is scheduled to be released May 2012.
