Knitting – it takes many forms. Nanna knitting, Street knitting. Manly knitting. Knitting. Is there nowhere the clickety-clack of busy needles can’t be heard? Certainly not this weekend.

It’s getting colder in Canberra. We’ve all felt it recently as the temperature dropped and the mornings greeted us with a brisk frost. It’s the perfect time to grab a pair of Number 10s and head out on Saturday for a curious worldwide event.
Oh, you Canberran’s – you’re a talented lot! When not curating catwalk-worthy outfits out of your home studios, you’re whipping up all manner of trinkets and artworks for sale in the always fabulous Handmade Store.
This weekend, it’s bigger and better for everyone as Canberra’s Kitchen Creators arrive en-masse for the bi-annual Handmade Fashion and Food Market – and it’s delicious!
Taking inspiration from those Harajuku Girls of Tokyo, she wears a knitted burger on her head of pink and blue hair, shows her 90’s pride with badges on a denim vest, and just when you think it can’t get anymore devoted!?!
We found Jean chatting while checking out the ‘Needle vs Thread’ stall at the Canberra Handmade Markets. We first noticed her ‘Love’ cardi and then when we saw the cowboy boots, we knew Jean needed inclusion.
