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!!

Here they come and off they go.....


We are just hours away from welcoming my brother-in-law, his wife and 2 children to London for their holidays.  The weekend looks like a whirl of meals out, walks, theatre visits and shopping.  There won't be much time for crafting.

I had exactly enough items to fill a charity box and it has now gone off to Operation Orphan which is an organisation that distributes blankets and clothing to children in need around the world.  So they will soon be richer by 1 giant crochet blanket, 1 baby jacket and 8 baby hats of varying sizes.

I get a mini buzz when I manage to send off a parcel.  It's a good feeling to clear the decks.  I now officially have only 1 project in progress.  But that will change just as soon as I have some free time to myself!
