I've been doing lots of everything ...

... but most important right now is getting ready for the Lindesay Christmas Fair with my friend Mally Ellis from Grasshoppers and Knit For Life!. I have ePOCK's and postART, and Mally has her beautifully soft hand knitted items.

Grasshoppers modern, yet classic and timeless, simple and soft hand knitwear designs are HAND made from 100% high quality cotton by the Knit for Life! co-operative of over 200 indigenous women in the South-East rural areas of Zimbabwe.

Grasshoppers is Australian designed for babies wear, children's wear, adult jumpers (special orders only) and homewares. Each piece is hand made stitch by careful stitch with dedication and pride by the Knit for Life co-operative of knitters.

Grasshoppers is a Fair Trade registered label, providing sustainable income to a community of women and their families in Zimbabwe since the business started in Australia in Oct 2001. All revenue from sales goes back into the long term sustainability of the business.

The Fair is on from Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th November, 10 - 4 daily at Lindesay House, Darling Point Sydney.
