When the topic of crochet or knitting comes up across various social media sites I often read about folks who crochet or knit being looked at differently and being told crocheting or knitting is for older folks and I simply cannot comprehend as to why? I guess the astigmatism runs rather deep and it’s a shame some folks think this way. I believe whether you crochet or knit the heart creates an element of surprise and satisfaction with every WIP (work in progress) allowing the creator to feel totally accomplished and greatly satisfied . There are so many pieces being created right now which quite frankly are purely works of art unable to be duplicated on any man made machine. So the next time you see someone crocheting take time to stop and admire the workmanship ask questions almost anyone would appreciate this gesture. If you request items to be made remember it’s handmade and will last for ever . And if you get a chance try crochet or knitting start with a simple scarf or Afghan once you do you will be hooked. And then … It happens you become a yarn hoarder . But that’s for another blog entry… Crocheting or Knitting is not just for older folks and now you know .

Being your own kind of happy is all you should ever want to be. Easier said then done right ? of course it is. We would not call it life if it wasn’t meant to be like that way besides how many years does it take to learn life lessons 1, 10.20 ? It will be different for each of us as it was planned a very long , long time ago. What I do know for sure is…my life lessons over the years had a very strong meaning and yes, I do believe my personal life changes were brought about as a result. I never knew it then ,but I know it now. Previously, I could care less regarding life lessons , but be certain I felt the pain deep within my soul always wild with anticipation of what was yet to come. They say time brings change and I’ve come to believe this to be true. How can one develop through life if you can’t or won’t see the change you were meant to see and to be the change you were meant to be ? So today I open my umbrella and cover my head allowing life lessons to fall like soft rain. After all life isn’t meant to be easy it’s meant to live ! Listen to your life lessons make the most out of them every single day. Besides, as long as you have an umbrella to open you wont feel so beat up afterwards. Live strong , Be strong. Sometimes ya just gotta keep going !

I recently tried my hand at making doggy sweaters. We have 5 awesome cairn terriers all adopted from Col.Potter Cairn Rescue.com
they will each sport a new sweater this winter even living on the South we get cold here.

this was my first crochet item to wear other than scarfs , cowls, shawls. I love how it came out so soft and cozy and most of all it’s extremely fashion forward . I must give full credit to Mikey over at crochet crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/ it was his tutorial and pattern that made this happen. I changed it up just a little by adding the flowers in the front
