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!!

On their way....





On their way at last to Operation Orphan are 11 hats and 4 jumpers of varying sizes. This little collection is a team effort.  The yarn was supplied by:
  • Fiona of the FC Knits blog
  • Joanne of the Cup On The Bus blog (who also knitted the blue hat and the 2 larger jumpers)
  • Nuns in a UK convent that was closing down
  • and a local family that was giving away items prior to a house move
I really, really enjoyed making these items.  People have commented on how good I am to knit for charity.  It doesn't feel like that.  I am just very grateful that there is an outlet for my hobby!

The highlight for me is when I can finally pack a box and send it off.  Now for the next box.....

  8. Lovely knitting. How nice that others get to enjoy the fruits of your hobby, and that you are able to make use of the yarn others don't want or need. Keep it up! Knitting is such a great hobby, isn't it? Vee x

  11. It's so very true that we need outlets for our creative energies, yes? If there's no one to sell or give your work to, then you must stop creating, which would be sad :( Glad you have this outlet that's a joy for you, and such a help for others. Beautiful work! I love those baby jumpers.
