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.

Simple Blue Cardigan

Good grief, I am so bad at photographing my little knitted cardigans, just look at this layout- on second thoughts, please don't look.  It looks as if I have just taken it out of the washing machine.

This plain and simple cardigan is quick and easy to make and it is nice and chunky.  It is made in Baby Double Knit and, for the knitters, it is a vintage UK Hand Knitting Association pattern number UKHKA 3.

I'll be back in a day or two with more.  Meanwhile, I hope you have a very happy weekend.

    1. Oh don't, I am running out of babies to knit for and, my experience has been, that once they start school they do not want to wear hand made.

      I wonder if there is a market we could tap into?
