Welcome to DreamChallenge

Having a dream to share my knitting creations, cooking adventures and caregiving stories with others is now a reality. I bet you know someone right now who is at home taking care of someone they love. A phone call, e-mail, note card or some food would all be appreciated. Sometimes an offer to stand in for that person is a wonderful gift. Think about getting a hair cut, what if there is no time or person to sit with your loved one? What can you do to help someone else, or if you are that caregiver, how can you get people to understand you would like to see them or have their help? Knitting helps me stay calm. Knitting helps my blood pressure stay normal. What helps you? Cooking is an adventure for me. My husband is a dedicated 'clean-up' person. Join us on this part of our life's journey.

Choosing to send out cards is one way I stay in touch with others. I address cards on Sunday and my husband puts them in the mail on Monday. There is always someone who needs a card.

After several months of blogging there is a reality that lots of people really enjoy this activity. Positively delightful people, living life to the best of their ability. There is such fun in hearing from others who have ideas, stories, crafts all to share with those who choose to read. Thank you my new friends in this unknown world/way of communicating.

Scalp Warmer

The pink yarn keeps coming my way.  I think it is a sign that the breast cancer awareness kitting items are really blessing those who recieve the gifts.  Here is another hat and more of the scarf I started a few days ago.  It blesses me to knit for others.   Would love for you to share with me why you knit.  Just leave me a comment.   


  1. Oh Jan - this is just so lovely - I can just tell from the photos how soft this is going to be. The Pink colors are so cheerful and so beautiful - this is definitely your blessing to give to others.

    Why do I knit? I knit because I am totally obsessed with yarns - I adore the touch - the colors - the textures. I love every tangle, every knot, every way that you can tie around a needle. If there is a 12 step program for this obsession - I need it~~


  2. Hi there,
    thank you for your visit. You are lucky, that it is not so cold in Ohio. Here we are freezing - it is unbelievable ... we have cold wind directly from Sibiria and 21 degrees minus....I hope spring is coming soon. Hugs Myriam
