I am a retired Nana, having knitted for our family, and grandchildren for well over 50 years.
I began knitting when I was 8 years of age, having been raised on a sheep farm.
At 10 years of age, my very first paid order for knitting, came from my Primary School’s Headmaster, who’s wife was expecting their second child. From memory, I knitted over six cardigans/jerseys for their toddler.
Over the years I have knitted for wool shops, orders being placed by customers. Knitted many 3ply baby shawls for what was the Agrodrome in Rotorua.
Wool, now seems to be making a come back, but many people find they can’t wear it next to their skin.
Hence - I knit in both acrylic and wool, as will be indicated in each listing.
Knitting has been my passion for many, many years, but now I am opting for smaller things to knit.
