The last pair of fingerless mitts is finished. Actually, I finished sewing them up on Tuesday night and now it is Saturday afternoon! Time is just flying by at the moment. The colour is a bit washed out in this photo. They are quite a bright blue with a fleck in them. I had a… Continue reading The Last Pair
My neonatal knitting was delivered this week. I took the two singlets and a little grey cardigan around on Wednesday night. I hadn’t quite finished the little aqua coloured cardigan, so I delivered that on Thursday night. One task ticked off my list! I was very happy to get these garments finished on time, but… Continue reading Neonatal Knitting Delivered
My night shelter knitting is nearly done. I actually took a photo nearly two weeks ago to do this post but life has been a bit overwhelming lately. In the previous photo the mitts were not finished, so this will probably give you a better idea anyway. I have been knitting to contribute to an… Continue reading Night Shelter Knitting

Holiday Ornaments Galore starts off with a brief introduction of the author, Ursula Michael. This is followed by a couple of pages of General Instructions and Technique Tips. These… Continue reading Holiday Ornaments Galore
I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions
My Hokitika set is finished! Actually, I finished it on Saturday but have only got around to taking photos this afternoon (Monday). I am really pleased with how it has all turned out, but the mittens followed the same construction path as the hat. The pattern I used for the fingerless mittens was a plain… Continue reading Hokitika Set Is Finished
I’ve made a start on my son’s birthday present and the Hokitika hat has been finished – twice! In fact, it was actually started twice and finished twice. So, let me explain. I had a hat pattern sorted out for the Aran wool I mentioned in “So – There Was A Wool Sale”. After starting… Continue reading Hokitika Hat Has Been Finished – Twice!
I love this book! When the opportunity came up to review Mini Cross Stitch Ornaments from Leisure Arts, I was quite excited. It looked really interesting and I love doing cross stitch.

Last month (August) was the tenth anniversary of a knitting event called “KAN”, or Knit August Nights. SKEINZ had a wool sale, as they usually do, to help celebrate. It was very tempting but I managed to hold off until the very last week of it. They had some lovely yarns and some very good… Continue reading So – There Was A Wool Sale …
I’ve finished the little pink baby set, and I literally finished just in time. It turned out that my sister was down for the weekend and I asked her if she could take the set back with her. I finished putting on the last button five minutes before she arrived to pick it up! Fortunately… Continue reading Finished Just In Time!
