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.

The Grey Boy

Well, more the boy in grey.

I have a 2 year old nephew who is shooting up at the moment, you know what they are like at that age.  

My sister rang me a little while ago and asked if I could make him some new jumpers as he had been growing so fast virtually nothing he had still fitted him.  She particularly asked for something in grey.

I went for something quite plain, a nice round neck cardigan in double knit using Stylecraft pattern 4909.

Something to keep him nice and warm on these cold days.



  1. Looks lovely and warm I love to see babies/toddlers in hand knitted things

    1. Thank you Carol. I made him quite a pile of new cardigans and jumpers. Luckily, at two his size does not take very long to make.
