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 of if they ask nicely!! I think 2014 will be a year full of squares and blankets, plus some much-needed vests and jumpers for yours truly.

I love Flickr. Someone who works there has a sense of humour. I always read what it says on the screen when I am uploading photos and today it was "milking butterflies". It brightened up what was until now a humdrum day.
In my last post I mentioned that I was going to combine some 2 ply and 4 ply wool. Here are the baby hats and a scarf that I managed to knit. The variegated mauve and purple yarn is 2 ply and the other yarn is 4 ply. The hats are different colours because the 4 ply wool is cream on the left and lilac on the right.
All three items will eventually go to a charity for distribution to children in need. I just need to make a few more things to fill a box before I post it. I'm guessing that I will miss the deadline for this winter's deliveries. But there is always next year.
As usual the hat pattern is my favourite baby hat pattern. The scarf is from a crochet pattern that, as a learner, I find fairly quick and easy.
