  • Scrumble shawls

    Nanna says she enjoyed making the “free knitting and scrumbles shawl” that’s for sale at Kapiti Gallery. She says she’s going to make one for herself now, in colours she loves and wears a lot. We’re guessing it will be blue… But Nanna also says, If someone wanted to pay her a small fortune for it, […]

  • Long and winding scarf

    Nanna says she started knitting a jersey in colours to match her new trousers – and it got away on her! It’s long and striped and although it matches her “autumn” pants, she doesn’t often wear scarfs and might sell it instead. We reckon it looks lovely and snuggly and warm and wiggly!

  • Nanna sold a jersey…

    …and knitted a couple of new ones! Nanna says she’s very happy someone bought her “Jump for Joy” jersey for their little kid  and also some kids’ ugg boots. We got beautiful yarn for Nanna for Christmas, and she’s nearly finished knitting a cardigan/jacket. The wool we got her is twisted blue and purple, and […]

  • Scrumble Shawl

    Nanna says she’s scrumbling again. She’s joined  the scrumbles together. She says it’s going to be a shawl. She plans to put it in an exhibition. It looks very warm! We wonder who will buy it? PS At the top of the first picture is a kind of scrumble flower bag Nanna made a while […]

  • she’s still scrumbling

    Nanna says she’s really enjoying “free knitting”! These are her scrumbles so far. She thinks they’re getting away on her…  

  • Scrumbles – you never know…

    When she finished knitting a vivid stripy scarf, Nanna says she hat lots of bits of colours to play with. So she’s doing freeform knitting, making scrumbles. We don’t know what they’ll turn into. Nanna says she doesn’t know, either. But she’s got some ideas… Nanna always says “I’ve got an idea!” (Little brother says, “So […]

  • Scarfies

    Nanna says she’s just finished a “summer beach / winter weight” scarf. There’s a matching necklace you might want to buy to wear with it. Nanna says they’ll be on soon.

  • can you guess what this is?

    Nanna’s knitted a LOT OF HATS but they’re not for Little Brother – who doesn’t like hats, anyway – or for Big Brother who already has a snuggly purple hat. The hats Nanna’s been knitting are to give away to kids who don’t have a Nanna or Mum who knits for them; or who need […]

  • she’s knitting for us, this time

    After making quite a lot of things to sell, Nanna says she’s knitting winter jerseys for us just now. She’s nearly finished one for big brother, and then she’ll start on little brother’s one. When they’re done, she’ll post photos of us wearing them. If you like them, you could commission one. (Nanna, what’s comishun?)

  • It’s a brothers thing.

    Nanna is knitting a tunic with the wool she got with our Christmas voucher. It’s for a grownup lady. Nanna says we should try and say “woman” not “lady” but she thinks it’s a losing battle. We don’t know what that means. We aren’t fighting (right now). Sometimes we fight about who plays with the […]
