With temperatures being colder than usual in Auckland this winter, I haven’t been so inspired to create mosaics in my studio. I turned my attention to a different kind of mosaic … knitting assorted random Peggy squares and crocheting them together to make a cosy retro inspired blanket just like your Nana or Grandma might once have made. What makes this really special is the inclusion of home spun fleece that my partner Robert and his Mum had formed into yarn many years ago. Another lost art that I think needs a renaissance. So while my thoughts continue to arrange fragments of vintage china , my hands are itching to create further woollen treasures.
