At each knit-in now they brandish their knitted chains - a symbol of outrage at Premier Baird's draconian protester laws. (Interestingly, while these chains may not be much use for chaining Nannas together - other than symbolically - they are quite useful as scarves.)
Last week the Nannas had a change of venue - moving up Prince Street to station themselves outside the Grafton office of federal MP Kevin Hogan, Member for Page. The Nannas really enjoyed knitting in this pleasant spot and chatting to the passers-by. It's not the proximity to the federal MP that makes this spot so appealing to these doughty women. It's the space, the tropical palms, the seating - and the proximity to the pedestrian crossing.

This week the Nannas returned to their old haunt outside the office of our state MP, Chris Gulaptis, Member for Clarence.
This week we were delighted to welcome back three Nannas who had not been at knit-ins for some time. So we had lots of catching up to do. We nattered non-stop and discussed all sorts of nannerly subjects including patterns and yarns, the best way to make chains, and the oh-so exciting federal election campaign.
