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 bus. Or the garbage truck. Or whatever one of us has that makes the other one want it. Nanna says there are heaps of toys to play with. She doesn’t understand. It’s a brothers thing. Nanna says turquoise is tricky to photograph, and the wool … Continue reading It’s a brothers thing.
Nanna’s been busy, she …just hasn’t been posting. And she’s still working on the ruffly thing… Continue reading …just hasn’t been posting
A word from Big Brother: we are staying at Nanna’s place at the moment. She’s busy knitting something but won’t tell us what it is. She says we take up so much time, and we’re not to mess with her wools like rascal little kittens! She’ll be back to show you some more photos soon. Bye bye, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Nanna says she’s still working on 3 garments: the Jump for Joy jersey just needs its sleeves to be finished, the Asian Inspired jacket’s ready to be sewn up, and the Chunky knit-in-one-piece cardi is about one-third done. She says she’d be done by now if we’d left her in peace for just a couple of hours while she stayed with us! We thought she liked playing with us… feeding us, changing our clothes, taking us out while Mummy got some work done. By the time we were in bed, she says she was too tired to do anything but … Continue reading 3 oranges
Oranges & Limes? Avocado & Lettuce? Nanna’s got three projects on the go! Can you guess what she’s knitting now? (No, neither can we. You’ll just have to keep an eye on her, like she keeps an eye on us. Specially … Continue reading Yum! What is it?
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!
Now the chunky blue rug is finished, Nanna’s knitting something you might like to buy. Guess what it’s going to be? Will it be orange? Will it be quirky? Will Nanna follow the pattern? (I told her, “It’s very ‘portant to follow … Continue reading your turn! will Nanna follow the ‘structions?
