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!!

Seasons greetings from me and the skating penguin...
Here's the fun brooch I bought to brighten up my new scarflet......a cute penguin complete with it's own snazzy blue scarf. It captures my mood at the moment. I can easily swap it for another brooch if I want something more elegant. I've updated my profile photo to show me wearing the scarf.
The photo is really small. I'm not being shy; I just can't work out how to make it bigger! UPDATE: I just learned how to enter some CSS code which makes the profile photo bigger. So I made it slightly bigger. (If I make it even bigger, all my sidebar buttons increase in size until they are too big.) ANOTHER UPDATE: I just managed to make the profile photo bigger without increasing the size of my sidebar buttons. Now I really must stop fiddling with my template!
The photo has a sell-by date because I added some snowflake animations which will probably look a bit ridiculous in the middle of summer. Hopefully, by then, I will have something else to model.
So that is it for 2013. I'd like to send season's greetings to all the amazing people who read my blog. When I started it, I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. I've enjoyed reading all your comments.....I really do read and appreciate them all, even if I can't always think of a reply.
I've read some inspirational blogs, learned new skills, won some giveaways, been at the receiving end of some generous donations, and even appeared in a list of recommended craft blogs. I didn't dream of any of that a year ago. So I'm really looking forward to what 2014 might bring.
