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!!

The autumn to winter scarves......
I'm supposed to be cutting back on knitting until the new year. But I had the sudden urge to crochet a scarf in autumn colours. That was followed by another urge to crochet one in winter colours!! As I try to avoid putting yarn remnants back into the bag, I knitted 2 hats as well. Isn't it strange how 2 adjacent seasons can have such different colour palettes?
The scarves and hats will fit smaller children, though the winter scarf is long enough for a teenager as well. They will all go to a charity next year.
That's definitely IT for this year. I have some sewing to do and I'm enjoying some mindless blanket knitting. Otherwise, I am going to be quite busy with other things.
The crochet scarf pattern is here. It is the only crochet scarf pattern I can do easily.
The autumn hat pattern is here. The crown decreases are neat and roomy. It always looks like a real head-shaped hat to me. The winter hat is from a pattern called "Ellie's easiest hat" which I found on the Loving Hands website. To access the patterns on this site you have to join up. But it is free and a whole world of useful information will be available to you.
