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 she’s knitting in some of the matching blue “for added interest”, she says. We wonder what lucky little kid will get to wear it? Nanna says it’s probably too small for either of us, coz we’re big kids now. Continue reading Nanna sold a jersey…

We’re far away…

Nanna is still knitting for us, even though we’re far away now. Little Brother and Big Brother have moved to their dad’s hometown in South Korea. It’s a long way from New Zealand!

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 does Maisie Mouse!” What do you think it will be? (We don’t think it’s something for us to wear, but Nanna says, “You never know!” Continue reading Scrumbles – you never know…

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 to stay at someone else’s place and don’t have time to take their clothes (Foster Hope). We’re lucky coz we’ve got lots of clothes at home and some at Nanna’s house, too. So, can you guess what Nanna’s been knitting just now? Here’s an idea: … Continue reading can you guess what this is?
