    vintage mummy

    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!?!

Here’s Little Brother wearing a scarf Nanna […]

In the end, Nanna says she decided something “handmade with love” would be the best present, and […]

  • chunky blue rug

    Nanna’s working on a rug now. This one isn’t for us; she’s using leftover wool that people don’t need, to knit a warm, chunky rug for kids whose Nanna or mum can’t knit for them. Sometimes their mum or dad can’t look after them and they go to stay at someone else’s place – sometimes […]
