Anna from My Veggie Patch has installed an outdoor edible garden at Gather. A great design of tiered pallets cascading with climbing beans, strawberries and nasturtiums, and is causing a sensation on the street being tourist photographed even more than the pink bike. We are also stocking My Veggie Patch product line of planted garden pallets, watering cans, plant flags & seed packets at Gather.

Kim from Lushka Flowers has created this 'wildflower installation' in our new hanging macrame at Gather. She turned up with a big bucket of wild jasmine, roses, lavender, poppies, cornflower, grasses and other pretty stuff to conjure some Spring magic in the shop. Imagine the scent in here - it's really wonderful. The macrame will be on the Gather online shop soon, if you're inspired by this idea for yourself.

My Triangle Knitting Project: Construction No.4 pattern is now available to purchase on our Online Shop, and WOOLI is back in stock. I'm so excited about this pattern, particularly because it has the free additional Annex to it, which is an extra pattern to creatively use more triangles, with an embellishment project making braids and tassels. Construction No. 4 garments require 15mm knitting needles, and the annex requires 25mm knitting needles to make.

This workshop is sailing along beautifully; it's proven that 2 days is a good length of time for attendants to really explore the idea of customizing their Construction Knitting Pattern. So the Hellenic Republic is a few doors down for the best value lunch in town (a $12 lunch box special of 3 courses), and possibly the best coffee in town right next door at the Brunswick East Project. It's my second last day in Melbourne, and I'm soaking up every bit in while I can.

In the new issue of Frankie you will find a free pattern for the Gnome Hood; which is our little teaser to get you inspired for the Construction No. 4 pattern, which will be launched online soon. Speaking of online, Frankie seemed to have forgotten to print our website address alongside our extreeeemly generous free pattern offer, but we're hoping the Frankie reader is google savvy enough to find us J!. I also need to desperately correct the caption that says I "make-to-order-garments"; so No, No, we don't, so pleeease do not email me with this request, ask your aunty or your mum instead!!
