boy it doesn’t take long for the old blog to be neglected. The past few weeks have seen all sorts of things going on – projects completed, projects started, and a whole lot of talking.
One of the awesome things about being involved in knitting in Wellington means the opportunity to meet so many fantastic people. I’m a bit sad that Kreachr is off to the big smoke. Even though i’ve only met her a few times, I love her unending enthusiasm, and Auckland should count itself pretty damn lucky.
The Blendy book launch went wonderfully despite the huge slip preventing some from making it out to the Hutt from Wellington. In fact it went so Belinda and I hardly had the chance to have a good gossip – which just gives yet another reason to head up that way for a visit.
And yours truly managed to squeeze five minutes of time into a pretty packed schedule to talk knit graffiti at Ignite Wellington. A great knit of some pretty inspiring talks – and a pretty cool coincidence that Nathalie was speaking – we were in the same class back when we were little wee 12 year olds.
I’m not brave enough to watch it myself! 😀
This weekend i’m off to the land of my youth – New Plymouth – for a workshop at the Govett-Brewster. The plan is to cruise up visiting op shops and meet lots of lovely knitters. So if you’re in the ‘naki, pop by and say hi on Sunday!

It has been a bit of mayhem around here lately.

With a fizz and a pop a couple nights ago, I was thinking about it’s a tree. It happens a lot.

I’ve done quite a bit of knitting with Kowhai lately. It’s so lovely and warm – nothing like a bit of golden yellow to warm that slight chill in the air.
This morning I noticed that the backyard was covered in leaves…so the camera came out…

It’s a tree!
This is a collaborative community project, which means we need you.
The idea is this:
there are a few very tall lamp posts outside the New Dowse in Lower Hutt, and OutdoorKnit decided it would be a pretty fun idea to turn them into something different…trees!
What OutdoorKnit needs is lots of knitted, crochet or even sewn flowers, leaves and native birds to cover these ‘trees’. The best medium for this is acrylic – it wears better when the weather gets a bit grotty.
I’ve been knitting away over the past few weeks to get my pile of leaves and flowers ready. Watch this space for suggested patterns, installation dates and how to get your contribution added to the tree.
