Since starting my blog and joining twitter I have met a whole community of lovely people. I have joined in baking challenges, followed craft tutorials and recently taken on a recycling and daily photograph challenge. Social media has brought me in touch with people that I wouldn't normally meet that share my interests.
The picture above is of a jumper that has been made for me by someone on twitter. I saw this jumper on pinterest and straight away fell in love with it. Unfortunately it was not available to buy, it is a knitting pattern by Kate Davies. Now I may be quite creative and crafty but I cannot knit at all. So I put a shout out on twitter to see if any kind person would knit me the jumper for a little bit of money and baking in exchange. Very kind Kirsty @mrsjollyjackstar offered to make the jumper for me. A couple of months later and I have this lovely handknitted jumper which fits me perfectly and is a great example of why I love social media.
