Cardigang Is A Cool New Craft Company For Beginner Knitters!

Like lots of people during Melbourne’s 2020 lockdowns, Cat Bloxsom and Morgan Collins took up a new hobby to keep themselves from going stir-crazy. They taught themselves how to knit on YouTube, and quickly became obsessed!

After months of mailing each other yarn samples, and knitting on park benches in lieu of daily exercise – they realised they had something special going. Within months they launched Cardigang, a DIY knit kit company tailored towards beginner knitters.

Alongside their full-time jobs in marketing, these business-minded besties are doing cool crafty things!

A Grandmother's Accessible, Flower-Filled Dream Garden!

To say this garden has undergone a transformation would be an understatement.

What was recently a large, barren plot accompanying a newly-built home in Kenthurst (39 kilometres north-west of Sydney’s CBD) is now an absolutely thriving garden for its elderly owner.

The client’s brief can be boiled down to four key elements – accessibility, refuge, social opportunity, and views – but their main request was for flowers! The resulting design by Outdoor Establishments combines seasonal colour, mature trees, and bird-attracting species, delineated by stone walls and paved areas featuring textural travertine from Eco Outdoor, to create multiple zones for eating, lounging and enjoying the garden. The perfect outcome for an extended family who love to entertain!
