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.

New White Cardigan

I have not completely abandoned making cardigans and jumpers for knitted toys but I do only make them for New Born's now as I have found that older children do not like to stand out by wearing hand made jumpers.

One of my best friends recently became a grandmother for the fifth time and I made this white cardigan for the most recent addition to her family, a little boy.

Made in white baby Double Knit, this very old Robin pattern is one of my favourites.  (For anyone who is interested, the pattern number is 2496.)

I think you can just about make out the mock cable pattern in this close up.

Have  great weekend.



  1. Beautiful cardigan and pretty pattern-I agree about making them for older children-but babies always look better in hand knitted

    1. Thank you Carol. I agree, I think little babies look so sweet in an hand made cardigan ... especially white.
