"Nancy thought she was the only one who loved to knit but then she met some Brown Owls and together they knitted and crocheted a host of woolen treats."

After 2 successful exhibitions as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Knitting Nancy is back for a 3rd time in 2013 with Knitting Nancy's Aviary.

Knitting Nancy is an ever changing group of artisans who gather their knitting and crochet skills together to create exhibitions of textile wonderment in the fair city of Adelaide, Australia.

in which I say hello

Hi all, I haven't met most of you so I thought I'd better make an introduction!

My name is Bec and I'm a 5th year law/behavioural science student at Flinders Uni and I dislike it immensely. I've done a bit of politics this year and found it much more interesting than law, which is saying something...

Most of the time I try to be more interesting by making things! This year under the name MadeByBecca I started selling (and making) polymer clay jewellery and knits (at www.madeit.com.au/MadeByBecca and Irving Baby!). I love cute things, kitsch things, fancy things, vintage things, bright things and mostly things that do not involve textbooks, legislation or note-taking in any form.

Wool-wise I started out make scarves but now also make cushions, fruit and cupcakes.

Hope to meet you all soon!


  1. Hello, lovely to meet you! I'll post a bit about me and what I'm making for the exhibition this weekend. I really need some crochet motivation these days - or just a swift kick up the butt. From Tracey

  2. Great to meet you Bec! That is just the cutest little cupcake. Like Tracey I need to get a wriggle on with my crochet for the exhibition. Will post up a progress shot soon.

  3. Hi guys, I need to get a move on too! I'd love to see what you're all up to- I've been to a few blogs (sorry I can't remember who they belong to!) and they look lovely. I'm not able to head to the Irving Baby! Ornamental opening tonight but if anybody goes I hope it is great!

  4. Hi Bec, your treats always look good enough to eat!!!
