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!!

Just sharing my amazing giveaway....

I recently entered Linda's giveaway on her Chalky's World blog.  Linda is a talented crafter and photographer and her blog is well worth a visit.

I was amazed to win the giveaway and even more amazed when the parcel arrived this afternoon.  It was like several Christmases and birthdays rolled into one.

Here are the goodies all expertly and prettily wrapped:


and here they are after I had a ripping time opening them:


There was wool, patterns, material, recipes, cards and card-making accessories, notepaper, tissues, ribbon, a bookmark, cup cake accessories and straws, an owl and a crocheted burp cloth.  In fact the parcel was perfect for a crafter who also enjoys reading, baking and loudly celebrating the hay fever season!!!!!!  Pardon me while I drool.

I am already planning what to do with everything.  One of the knitting patterns is for a lovely baby jumper and I am itching to start it (or is that the hay fever?)  I have a big blanket  in progress at the moment and the jumper would be a nice little project.  I think I will be casting it on very soon.

Once again, a million thanks to Linda of Chalky's World.
