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 – Woo, woo! Now we live in Queensland, Nanna says we’ll be too warm to need her to knit things for us. But Big Brother said it gets cold sometimes, and he’d like a jersey in cool colours. Nanna said, “Is red cool?” Silly old Nanna! … Continue reading We thought she said ghostly
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.

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.

Nanna ran out of wool! She came to stay with us, and can’t get the wool she needs to finish the Jump for Joy jersey she’s been working on. So she bought some different wool, and she’s started a cardigan. It’s one of her favourites; she knitted one for each of us, but we’re too big for them now. Here’s a picture of the wool she’s using, the one she knitted for Big Brother, and pictures from the pattern of the “Asian inspired” jacket. Continue reading Asian Inspiration
Nanna says she’s about a quarter of the way through a new garment. She says knitting is her job now, and she’s only watching recordings of “Project Runway” because she needs something going on while she knits. She says she’s not gonna let the talent of 14 & 15 year olds on “Project Runway Junior” intimidate her. Continue reading she’s on fire!
