Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.
I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!
Thank you for visiting my blog.

I am back this morning with another of the little jackets I made earlier this year for my little niece.
This pattern is so cool, it makes me look like a much better knitter than I really am. It is full of stitch changes and lots of faux cable stitches. I cannot get my head around cabling, or rather I cannot get my fingers around it. I constantly drop the third needle and I end up super frustrated with myself, but with this pattern, who would guess it!

This is another of my favourite patterns. The cardigan is made of Baby Double Knit and has a pretty faux cable stitch edging.
I have checked the pattern and, as far as I can see there is no reference on it to the name of the company or a reference number. However, if you are interested, I purchased it from ebay - 'Baby Cardigan, Hat and Mittens DK Knitting Pattern'.

I thought that this birthday card was rather appropriate for today. This fabulous poppy wreath image is from Delicious Doodles.
