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.

Red Nordic Style Sweater
Once again I found myself getting low on red yarn, so I reverted to that old trick of mixing in another colour .... and just as well, I literally had only a few yards of red left when I had finished this jumper.
The pattern I used was Styecraft #4910 and I made up the white stripe design as I went, of course, matching the design on the back with the front.
I hope you have enjoyed my rush of red. I am looking forward to making something in another colour.
