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.

Wow with the election here in Alberta, I have been to busy to be on Facebook much, so I came across this story...

from National Dog News Examiner on Facebook.
Heineken addresses allegations that they promote dog-fighting
I actually hadn't seen the picture, but I am so happy that Heineken addressed it right away.

Picture that went viral on Facebook
Here is what they had to say...


Heineken has stated that the photo is "distressing and totally unacceptable",
 As a company and a brand owner, we do not and would never knowingly support any event, outlet or individual involved in this type of activity. It is against our company and brand rules and - more important - against our company values.
Heineken has stated that the following actions were immediately taken in response:

Removed all remaining promotional materials from the venueWithdrawn all current product stock from the clubCeased our relationship, ensuring our brands will not be available in the club again
  • Instructed our distributor to check every location where our brands can be enjoyed to ensure such illegal activities are not taking place. If there is any suggestion that they are, we will take the same action and remove our products
  • Continue to ensure our strict advertising and promotion guidelines are enforced both to the letter and the spirit of their intent
