Knitwit - Starring Lucy the Toy Poodle

Today marks the day that I became a potential full-time Nanna.  Not only do I now wear and adore nanna knits.  Not only did I stay in last Saturday night with a good book and a cup of tea.  Oh no, now you are looking at a nanna knitter in the making.  Today I had a bit of Nanna and granddaughter day which is what everyone girl needs in their life sometimes, and I have been begging her lately to teach me how to knit.  She makes the most amazing knit wear - My goal for next post is to incorporate a few of her famous knitted pieces she has made me throughout the years (I am actually wearing my most favourite knit jacket she made as I type!).  She explained to me that when she was a girl knitting, sewing, cooking and laundry were core subjects that everyone needed to learned (even the guys!).  Knitting and sewing seems to be such a dying art form, and I would love for the tradition to be passed onto my kids, and their kids.  I mean we'll see how the knitting goes, I'm not expecting miracles but I'm giving it a good go :)
It took me so long to decide what to wear today.  Perth's weather has been pretty all over the joint, so I originally started in denim shorts and a button up shirt and boots.  But I decided I was going to freeze my buttons off so I got into my favourite trusty jeans and was on my way :)

I am wearing: Target heels / Nobody jeans / Kookai singlet / Dotti Fur snood / Sportsgirl hat / Ltd edition Tension Gold watch / OPI nailpolish

Does anyone else knit!?

  4. I love the shape of the boot! I can't believe they're from Target! I have such bad luck buying fitting pieces from their. Like the vintage vibe this look gives off! & thanks for the comment & I'm almost always in Perth!
