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.

Pink, Lilac and Grey Round Neck Cardigan

I think this may be my last cardigan or jumper for a while .... well until I finish the one I am currently making.  

Do you remember me saying the other day that the favourite cardigan of my youngest niece is the navy one with sparkles?  Well apparently this cardigan has knocked it off the top spot and firmly taken it's place ... apparently she will not even take it off to go to bed.  Who can blame her, I also think these are really pretty colours and they work together so well?  The yarn is King Cole Cherish Double Knit yarns, made up in a Stylecraft pattern - number 4909.  I could not decide what colour to make the buttons and I thought, why not all of the colours so the buttons are a mix of different colours.

I had some of the yarn left over so I made him a bobble hat to go with his jumper.  The pattern is another one of my anonymous Ebay purchases.

Stay dry and keep warm.

    1. Hi Carol

      My little niece needs her warm woolies today, the weather here today is really awful, we had rain, hail and snow this morning. Followed by bright sunshine lunchtime and now it is getting really cold.

      I really do not know if she is using her bobble hat, the last I heard was that her mother was threatening to 'borrow' it!

      Stay nice and warm and snug.
