"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.

Illustrations for the Knitting Nancy Exhibition

Some quick snaps of my work for "Knitting Nancy"
Make sure you check out Tracey's photos of all the fantastic crochet and knitted works by the rest of the KN Crew.

"I Heart Wool"


Whenever Lucy travels
across the wild seas
she takes her knitting with her


Guerilla knitter
- or Yarn Bomber as she prefers to be known -
needles always at the ready


Pearl's kitten is very mischievous, his name is Knit


Juliet's alpacas have excellent eyesight and hearing
and will alert her to danger
with a staccato alarm call.


Mary had a little lamb
his fleece was not white as snow
as he liked to gambol
in the wet, green grass


Marguerite grooms her angora rabbit Pierre,
plucking his maulting fur.
Then she spins his fur into beautiful angora wool.
Sometimes she will cut pieces off for the birds to line their nests.


Cemile found an orphan angora kid goat and kept him warm
by cutting holes in sock and making a little coat.
Now her goat provides her with plenty of wool to make her own turkish socks.



Bridget and Judy loved to knit stripes.
Their horizontal designs caught the eye of the editor of
legendary craft magazine "Golden Hands" who featured the pair
on the cover of issue 5 in 1972.
There was some controversy during the photo shoot
when Bridget accused Judy of using a knitting machine.
