Another Gorgeous Scrumble Shawl

Nanna says she’s really happy with her snuggly scrumble shawl. We knew it would be blue! (And purple. And a bit of bright green.) When she wore her shawl to church, Nanna says, lots of people admired it! That made her happy! She says she’ll take orders, if anyone wants her to knit one for them. It’s not to everyone’s tastes, says Nanna, but if you like big and bold and totally unique, scrumbles are great! And if you get tired of it, you can make it into a carry bag and even felt it.

Colours of the ocean for a friend

Nanna says she couldn’t think what to get her oldest friend for her birthday. Then she said she’s not the oldest friend she’s got, but they’ve been friends for over 45 years, and we think that sounds very old. In the end, Nanna says she decided something “handmade with love” would be the best present, and because her friend spends a lot of time fishing and sailing, she’s knitted it in colours of the ocean. On one side, the scarf ends in a V or triangle shape, and on the other side there are six steps, one for each decade. We … Continue reading Colours of the ocean for a friend

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…

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 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?

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?) Continue reading she’s knitting for us, this time
