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… Continue reading can you guess what this is?
Nanna just finished this jersey. It’s made from hand spun wool she got from a knitting group friend, with some shop bought wool for contrast. She knit it in funny squares and rib patterns, with a V neck. Then she needed a model. Big Brother didn’t want to put the jersey on, and Little… Continue reading just try it on… please?
Nanna says the navy and off-white striped hat is for Little Brother, but he won’t wear it. Little Brother does not like hats. Nanna’s knitted navy and orange things – hat, mittens and socks – in adult size. Just now, they’re on sale at the Winter Woollies exhibition at Kapiti Gallery, along with the jersey… Continue reading who will wear these winter woollies?

When they’re done, she’ll post photos of us wearing them. If you like them, you could commission one. (Nanna, what’s comishun?)
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… Continue reading It’s a brothers thing.
Nanna says she’s nearly finished the ruffly thing, and that’s good coz she’s sick of it. She’s been working on it – on and off- since before Christmas. We still don’t know what it is. I don’t think it’s for one of us. We hope not. It’s very “wuffy” (that’s Little Bwuvver for ruffly). Maybe… Continue reading the ruffly tunic’s nearly done (fank goodness)
