  • We’re back – and Nanna’s knitting again

    Big Brother and Little Brother were living in Australia for a couple of years, and before that, they spent a year in South Korea. “In Queensland, we didn’t need warm knitted clothes, so Nanna stopped knitting for us. But now we’re home in New Zealand, she’s been knitting again. See our bright stripey scarves in […]

  • We thought she said ghostly

    Nanna says she’s knitting a new cardigan to sell on her website, because she’s made some sales lately and needs to restock her shop. She showed us the jersey when we talked on Skype. It’s got orange and blue stripes but she says it’s not as ghastly as it sounds. We thought she said ghostly […]

    Here’s a jumper Nanna knitted for our Mummy. She wore it to school! Nanna says it’s a poem to the ’80s. We don’t know what that means. After a while, Mummy wouldn’t wear the things Nanna knitted for her. All she wanted was bubble gum jeans and an acrylic navy blue sweatshirt. Now she loves Nanna’s crazy knitting […]

  • Tricky rascal raspberries

    Tricky rascal raspberries

    Nanna says some colours are really tricky to photograph – especially if they’re blue hues. Boo hoos!?! Haha, Nanna says it’s enough to make you wanna cry, the way the camera turns pink things red or orange but not bright dark pink like the real wool she was knitting with. She says the wool of […]

  • Snuggle hugs & “Operation Brighten”

    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 […]

  • Boomerang!

    Nanna says after all the time it took making scrumbles, it’s time for something easier, that she can get finished quickly. So she’s knitting scarves. Boomerang scarves, coz of the shape. She says it’s a really easy pattern once you get your head around it. It’s taken her a couple of goes, though, which is […]

  • Another Gorgeous Scrumble Shawl

    Nanna says she’s really happy with her snuggly scrumble shawl. We knew it would be blue! (And purple. And a bit of bright green.) When she wore her shawl to church, Nanna says, lots of people admired it! That made her happy! She says she’ll take orders, if anyone wants her to knit one for […]

  • Nanna says some things on Facebook

    Nanna says she usually says things here and posts them to our Little Brother Big Brother Facebook page. But this one’s the other way round; it’s from her FB to here. So you might see it twice. https://www.facebook.com/littlebrotherbigbrother99/ We haven’t seen it, coz too much screen time makes us silly, but our Mum sometimes checks out […]
