Talking, knitting, and stuff


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!

Tashyyy – you are amazing! I loved your talk 😀

I wish I could come and redo the fence. Less hungover perhaps.
