Lastest Knitting

I love hand crafts like knitting, crocheting and sewing, however over the years the family have not really wanted much. But now there are grandchildren and I am able to knit little garments that don't take long and give me much pleasure. There is something special about finding a pattern and then the wool, knitting up the garment (and being small these can just take a week) and then finishing it off with buttons etc.
My latest was a little jacket for Evelyn our 5 week old granddaughter. I used some old wool I have had for ages and "Design Four" from the Cleckheaton no. 423 pattern book, "Little babies including Premature Sizes".


  1. O mY Gosh that is the cutest thing I have ever seen! You are a talented woman! I bet it looks so adorable on your grand baby... the color is fantastic as well.

  2. Thank you.
    I love knitting especially small items as they don't take long. It is only as the children have become older that I have the time.
    But know the older ones don't want knitted things so the grandchildren will get lots!!
