Two Strands...




The loft, feel and colour gradation of several blankets in the current collection has been achieved by knitting two strands of wool together.

Last Day!


Today is the last day of my inaugural pop up at Husband Cafe, South Yarra. I'll be there til 4pm, so if you are in the area make sure you come by and say hi; it's the perfect opportunity to pick up and hold my blankets - you may not want to put them back down, but that's ok, I still have a couple available to purchase.

Pure Joy


I love making baby blankets, the subtle variations in tone and texture make for a beautiful and timeless gift that will keep on giving over the years.

The blanket above was cot size (95 x 135cm) when it was gifted to a new born. Now little girl is 4 years old and it has come back to me to be enlarged to fit her single bed (95 x 165cm).   

As she grows the blanket can grow with her. Maybe up to a double or queen size when she leaves home? Or perhaps, one day, it will be converted back to two or more baby blankets. 

There will be running repairs along the way, no doubt, but if handled with care, these blankets should last a lifetime.

Then & Now...

A Labour Of Love & Heirloom To Be


This blanket was created during the year my mother and I sat watching and waiting as my father slipped away into 'dementia-land'. I knotted reclaimed wool into rich colour sequences as my mother knitted. Sometimes my father held the ball of wool as we worked. A true labour of love and an heirloom to be.




The Oval Blanket

I finished this blanket in April and it's one of my favourites. I couldn't track down enough wool to make the usual size, so I knitted some half squares and made it oval shaped. As it is, it actually has wool from two different dye lots, but it all came together and the blanket now has pride of place in our kitchen/dining window box.
