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!!

And off they go....

This happy bunch of memory bears and little blanket squares is now in the post and on its way to SiMBA which is an organisation that donates memory boxes to bereaved parents.

There is a selection of knitting and crochet patterns that can be found on SiMBA's website. They are very easy. I soon learned the teddy pattern off by heart and could make one in a day, or two days if you count the sewing up.

This is a very fleeting blog visit. I just have to run and watch the tv. Anyone who has been following UK politics lately will know it is like watching a slow-motion car crash. Knitting is one of the things that usually takes my mind off the craziness.

I'll be back!....


  1. You made the cutest bears, great work and for a great cause.

  2. Very very cute bears.

    I know exactly how you feel about politics. I wish our worlds would just settle down. The last 3 years in the US have been like a marathon series of car crashes. Over and over and over again. One crash after another. So exhausting and disappointing.

  3. Those little pastel bears are the sweetest!

  4. (The bears are adorable.) But OH MY GOODNESS, my husband has been describing UK politics lately, and it makes me feel so much better about the insanity that we have over here on our side of the pond!
    I used to read Anthony Trollope novels, the Palliser series where he goes into all the politics back in 1800s Britain. I thought it was crazy in the novels, but that's nothing compared to what y'all have going on now!


Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. You are a star.
