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!!

Parcel on its way to Greenfields Africa...
Here are the knitted goodies that I have just posted off to Greenfields Africa which is an organisation that distributes clothing to children in Kenya and Uganda. It is well worth taking a look at their website to see all the ways they help in these countries.
I have been making these items for several months. There are 5 blankets, 4 dresses and 5 hats. All, apart from the stripy blanket, are knitted. The stripy blanket was crocheted. I had forgotten about some of these items and I love some of them so much that it was difficult letting go of them. But they were not doing any good boxed up in my house. So off they went to pastures new where hopefully they will be used for a long time.
