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!!

Fanfare and drum roll: the jumper is finished....


This is the jumper I have been struggling with for the past 4 weeks.  I am hugely relieved to have finished it and even more relieved to throw the pattern into the recycling bin.  Luckily my daughter is slim and I could knit the smallest size.  I'm pleased at how it turned out  and it will be beautifully warm in this freezing spell of weather we are having at the moment.

My favourite part, and the only part I will ever repeat, is the v neck that I picked up and knitted on a circular needle.  I struggled with the instructions for that as well so I am currently in the process of writing a very detailed blog post about how I did it.  Watch this space............

  2. Una - that looks lovely (daughter too!) I bought my first circular needle this morning - I am knitting a simple shawl and had run out of room on my needles. I am a pretty useless knitter (I do it for physio after chemo damaged my hands) but so enjoy it. Today I went to my knit and natter group and it really inspired me.

  5. It looks fantastic. Sorry to hear you never developed love for the pattern. But, heck, I guess they can't all be our favorite.
