Since Nanna’s last post, she and Granddad have been to visit us in South Korea. We miss each other and it was lovely to have real snuggly hugs instead of talking on the Skype or WhatsApp. They stayed for two weeks, but are home in New Zealand now. Here’s Little Brother wearing a scarf Nanna knitted. (Nanna says he’s a cheeky monkey!)

Nanna says she’s been knitting something that combines two fun ideas: a boomerang shawl covered in freeform knitting and scrumbles! It’s for “Operation Brighten“, a challenge for the Creative Fibre Wellington area members, to create colourful winter clothing for women at Women’s Refuge.

It can be a hat, scarf, gloves, rug, cushion, throw or something else. Nanna’s made a pink scrumbly scarf, and now she’s knitting a multi-coloured stripey one.
