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.

Blue and Grey Striped Jumper

What have you been doing with yourself since the Christmas Holidays, have you returned to work or have you been taking advantage of this lull between holidays to do a spot of crafting?  I have been trying to get all of my handmade items onto my blog in order to share them with you.  I have been such a dilettante blogger this year.  

Today I have a striped jumper I made for my youngest nephew.  I wanted to use up some oddments of yarn left over from other jumpers I had recently made him.  It is one of those designs which comes out of your head - using elements from this and that pattern.

I had enough yarn leftover to make him a matching beanie.

Whatever you choose to do today, I hope you have a good time.

    1. I know how you feel. I am only doing a little knitting, but mostly I am resting as I do not feel much like doing anything .... it's that time of year again.

      Have a good day.
