Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

When I grow up....
These twins weighed in at 400g each and already take up a seat of their own on the sofa. When they grow up they are going to be an Aran jumper for my daughter. I steered her towards the Aran patterns on Ravelry in the hope that she would choose something quick to knit. Unfortunately, she chose quite a lacy pattern which means I am constantly counting and can't get into a steady rhythm. The pattern is written in a really odd way and it took me several attempts at knitting a tension square before I managed to sort out which needles to use. I suppose the fact that absolutely nobody has tried this Ravelry pattern should have set the alarm bells ringing. Hey ho; it might be ready by next Christmas.
For any other masochists out there, this Ravelry pattern has the memorable name "6-4 sweater in English rib with v-neck knitted in cotton "
