Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

No Kid Hungry

When I think of children going hungry, I think of some third-world country where people live in deplorable conditions because their government is neglectful, abusive, and doesn't care. You know, the places where our country (and others) send aid to try to help... Countries that the Feed the Children Fund show in their commercials. It is heartbreaking.

Do you know what else is heartbreaking? There are children just like that in MY country. That's right.
Right here in the United States of America!
1 in 5 children in America are at risk of hunger.
That is unacceptable.

Lately, I've seen a lot of ads on the Food Network for No Kid Hungry, so I went to their site to learn more.
If you cannot donate financially, you can still act to spread the word. Go to their site and click the heading "Act Now". Help spread awareness and help end child hunger in America.
And be sure to watch Hunger Hits Home Saturday, April 14 at 8pm eastern and pacific, and 7pm central. 

Please, take the pledge today.


I believe that no child in America should go hungry. By pledging today, I add my voice to the national movement of people committed to ending childhood hunger in America.
I pledge to do more than I ever thought I could to help children gain access to the healthy food they need to grow and thrive.
I will help make the invisible hunger visible for my neighbors, my family, and our local, state, and national leaders.
By uniting my voice with thousands of others, I believe that we can make No Kid Hungry a reality.
