About Us

We are two sisters and their daughters, crafting together despite living on opposite sides of one wide  continent.


I live in the most isolated capital city in the world, Perth, Western Australia. The summer days are long and very hot but we have a relatively mild winter. Which is a shame really, as I love winter. It's a great excuse to wear all the knitted things that I spend my days making.

I have 2 children, both at University whom I have had limited success with in trying to get them to wear my knitted items. Despite this, like every Mum, I am very proud of both of them.

5 Things about Louise that are handy to know.

1. Will knit anywhere, anytime. First thing packed for any trip is always a knitting project.
2. Tries to run 9km a week (tries being a loose interpretation of what actually happens)
3. Works with Finances and Budgets all day so I know exactly how much my wool stash has cost me - and yes, I do budget for it.
4. I dream of an Escape to the Country where I can grow my own vegetables and have some chickens and fruit trees. I would like to add some Scottish Blackfaced sheep to the mix - but I am no good at animal husbandry.
5. Tries very, very hard to enjoy cooking. Some days I succeed, others I don't and some days I don't even try.


I'm fortunate to live in one of the world's most liveable cities, Melbourne Australia. Even though I grew up in the country, I knew deep down inside a city dweller lurked just waiting for a chance to show herself.

I have three children, aged between twelve and seventeen, who fill my days with love, laughter, stress and a disappearing bank account...and I wouldn't have it any other way.

5 things about Deb that are handy to know:

1. I love lists. If you ask nicely, I could probably write you a list of all of the lists I write.
2. I have an intense dislike of musical theatre. I put this down to a childhood spent side stage (and unfortunately sometimes on stage) with our local repertory club.
3. My idea of take-away food is delicious fresh Chinese dumplings and my favourite time of the year is Nectarine season.
4. You will never find me in a hot air balloon. My family have been warned on many occasions that purchasing a hot air balloon ride for me as a present would be a seriously bad idea.
5. My signature Charades turn is "My Left Foot" and after twenty years or so, I think it might be the reason no one asks me to play anymore.

  1. Your website and blog are wonderful! I live where you can wear knitted things almost all year! Our joke is that we have four seasons: June is Spring, July is Summer, August is Autumn, and the rest is Winter! Exaggerating a bit, as the summers really are ideal. Thanks for some beautiful patterns and techniques!
