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.

Another rant on Copyright...ugh!

As you know, I am a moderator for the Ravelry group, Alan Dart. So periodically I get emails from Alan re: copyright issues. Last summer I got an email regarding a new children's book called Mouseton Abbey. They also have a FB pg. So the issue is that the characters are knit and the women that knit them used Alan Darts mice patterns, more than likely his Dickensian Party Mice or his 

Medieval Mice. On the FB pg it was finally acknowledged that the mice were knit from Alan's patterns, however now they are saying they are going to release a pattern book of the mice...ugh!


Oh and to top it off...this is a play on the popular tv show Downton Abbey...copyright infringement there as well!
