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.

Woof, woof!

I know, my blog titles are getting pretty lame but there have been a lot of posts recently and I am running out of ideas.  Talking of which, this is my third post today.

Do you remember my post of a day or two ago about the super cute little lamb scarves?  Well, I thought that the lambs might be a little too cute for the boys, so I search the internet for a pattern more suitable for small boys, but I could not find anything.  So I had to come up with my own.

I took Linda Castles lamb scarf pattern and left off the ears and top knot and added a couple of pointy ears and voilà a generic dog/fox/wolf pattern.

Just like the lamb scarves, I made these scarves with Aran yarn and added buttons for the eyes.

The beauty of these scarves is that they are really quick to make.

See you back here in the morning, I hope you have a good evening.

  2. How clever are you, these are fabulous. My nephew would have loved one of these when he was going through his wolf phase! X

    1. Thank you. Eighteen months ago my nephew was into The Fantastic Mr Fox in a big way.
