Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Charities I support

An Internet search will bring up zillions of charities or other great organisations that accept knitted and crocheted items.

The following is a list of links to those that I have personally supported:

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
Cwtch Of Comfort
Greenfields Africa
Knit for Nowt
Loving Hands
Operation Orphan
Samaritan's Purse
Sew Scrumptious
Siblings Together
The Innocent Big Knit
