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.

Girls Lace Cardigan

I have another Christmas present to share with you today ...

A little something in pink to perhaps wear over the Christmas holidays.  Made in Double Knit yarn, this cardigan features puff sleeves as well as a fancy trellis work design up the front and down the sleeves.

Once again, this pattern came from the internet with no makers name but the pattern number is 468.



  1. Beautiful colour and love the trellis pattern

    1. Thank you. I think it must be a very old pattern, although I have only recently bought it - you don't see puff sleeves very often these days.
