In The Pink Again

It’s been a while but I’m knitting pink baby clothes again. My niece’s new daughter is over two weeks old already, having been born over three weeks early, but I’m hoping to get a few things knitted quickly enough that she won’t out grow them too soon. I’ve chosen a set from a book I’ve… Continue reading In The Pink Again

On Its Way! (Finally Finished)

I finally finished the navy jacket (see “Almost Done!”) and got it posted off today. It should have been sent by Monday (yesterday) so I sent it courier post to make sure it gets there in time. I would hate it to be late for my grandson’s birthday. This pattern seems to be good at… Continue reading On Its Way! (Finally Finished)

Almost Done!

I thought I’d better give you a quick update on the navy jacket I’m pushing to finish for my grandson's birthday. I had hoped to get it finished last weekend, but lost a couple of evenings to meetings last week. The main knitting is almost done, which will leave the bands and joining together to… Continue reading Almost Done!

Finished In Plenty Of Time

It’s finished! I’m happy to report that the cowl has been finished in plenty of time for me to post it overseas. I’ve just wrapped it and packaged it up with a card so that it can be sent tomorrow. This has been quite a relaxing and straight forward pattern to knit. The only “whoopsie”… Continue reading Finished In Plenty Of Time

Birthday Present Cowl Update

I finally remembered to take a photo at the right time today so here is a quick update on the cowl I am currently knitting as a birthday present for my son’s partner. It will need to be finished soon so that I can get it posted away to Melbourne. I actually printed out four… Continue reading Birthday Present Cowl Update

Whoops – There Was A Wool Store!

It was good to have a break away for a few days last week. The trip up was a bit wet in places, but not too bad. Coming back home was another story, however. Very heavy rain made it difficult to see the road quite a lot of the time for the first half of… Continue reading Whoops – There Was A Wool Store!

It’s Finished!

I’m so pleased to have finished the cardigan for my granddaughter! I actually finished it a few days ago, on Saturday, but have not had a chance to do a post until now. The cardigan has been delivered, and was very happily received. She tried it on straight away and it fits really well. Job… Continue reading It’s Finished!

One Down, Still Many To Go!

As you can see, I’ve finished my little cross stitch, so that's one down of my many projects. I actually finished it on Saturday evening, but needed to get organised to get a photo taken. I still need to find a frame for it. This project was small and straight forward, and I found it… Continue reading One Down, Still Many To Go!

Bits And Pieces

So, yesterday (June 21st) was the shortest day here, and we are nearly halfway through the year. How did that happen! I thought I'd update you on a few bits and pieces that have been happening. I have had a lot going on since we returned from our trip around the South Island. On my… Continue reading Bits And Pieces

South Island Trip (the final leg) – Heading Home

It is always hard saying goodbye to your children and their families. All too soon it was time to start heading home. It was a little easier for me this time, though, as I knew I would be back down in six weeks. We headed north through Dunedin and stopped for a lovely leisurely lunch… Continue reading South Island Trip (the final leg) – Heading Home
