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.

  1. I cannot see the pattern! I have an old version of the pattern, and I was hoping to see any changes you might have made as a result of comments.

  2. Margaret I have a pdf of the pattern at, this is the updated pattern.


  3. Row 57, then even, then skip to row 61? There is no row 59 then?
