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!!

Baby scrappy scarf.....
In July I blogged about making a ball of wool from remnants. This week I found time to knit it into a little baby scarf. It measures 35" by 4.5" and is for the Keep a Child Warm project run by Operation Orphan. This is an organisation that distributes warm clothing to children in many countries. I read somewhere that they needed scarves to fit the toddlers and babies, so this will be perfect.
For this scarf I used a very long circular knitting needle and cast on 180 stitches. I then just knitted in garter stitch rows until I ran out of wool. I now officially have no more scraps of white or pastel dk yarn. Woo hoo!
