It may sound strange, but I am actually missing lockdown. Obviously the reason for having it is not a good one, and it’s good to be able to go out when I want to, but I really enjoyed being at home. We have been at Level 2 for two and a half weeks now and… Continue reading Missing Lockdown
I finally ventured out yesterday in search of buttons for the two little baby garments I finished a while ago. This proved to be a bit of an adventure, as I had suspected it would. The only shop locally where you can get a big selection of button now is a sort of discount store.… Continue reading Buttons!
Today is Thursday May 14th and New Zealand is now at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. Alert Level 3 finished officially at 11.59 pm on Wednesday. Life is changing again. To be honest, I’m still not really sure how I feel about this. When our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, announced on Monday that we would be… Continue reading Level 2
I’ve decided it’s finally challenge time. Over ten years ago I bought three 100g hanks of some beautiful yarn with only a vague idea of what I might make. It has been hanging out in my stash ever since. I think this was the first time that I bought yarn on impulse. Previously I really… Continue reading Challenge Time!
After all the dishcloths I made for other people at Christmas time, I’ve finally made one for me. I am planning to make some more for myself, but this first one was just using up an odd scrap that I had been given. It is a bit heavier weight than the cotton I’ve bought, and… Continue reading One For Me
I am really hoping that it is third time lucky for the little baby jumper. You will recall that my first attempt at a “pretty little girl’s jumper” was a bit of a failure. (See “A Waste Of Time”.) Well, I chose some 4 ply Naturally Loyal Baby Prints for my second attempt. The pink… Continue reading Third Time Lucky?
I have been working on my “Hermione’s Everyday Socks” and some other things over the last few days. The first sock is finished and I have cast on the second. It feels good to be making a bit of progress. I had such plans for getting lots of projects done during lockdown, but it has… Continue reading Socks And Some Other Things
It’s a bit belated, but here is my post on some of my Easter activities. The wreath was an activity compiled by one of our church members to help families work together to celebrate Easter at home. It has been hard not being able to meet for our Sunday services, especially so for Easter. The… Continue reading Easter Activities
I’m very pleased to be able to tell you that my Kanata Kerchief Tank Top is finished! Actually, I finished it a couple of days ago. I took photos yesterday morning, planning to do this post then, but that obviously didn’t happen. Today is Thursday April 9th, the first day of week three of our… Continue reading Tank Top Is Finished
Well that turned out to be a waste of time! In my last post I mentioned that I had a pattern and some pink wool picked out to do a “pretty” jumper to go with the neutral cardigan I’ve already made. (See “Day Two, Week Two”.) I was feeling inspired so I jumped right in… Continue reading A Waste Of Time
