Ups and downs

Well, I didn't achieve much at Monday night Knitting Circle last night. Two rows in fact. I really wasn't in the mood for knitting. I'm glad I went though; when you think you're doing okay and then you find something out that means everything becomes really hard again and you feel like you're back at square one, it's good to keep doing what you normally do. That's what I think anyway. Break-ups are not fun. And I shall leave it at that.

I'm really disappointed I can't go 'The Wonders of Wool' this weekend at the Frank Kitts Underground Market. One of my great aunts is having an 80th birthday lunch in the Wairarapa so I'll be over there that day. Here is some of her recent handy work:

I'm ashamed to admit that I don't know whether it's a wall hanging or a rug...and I felt bad asking. So it's something. And I don't know how she made it. Pretty helpful a? It's for her newest little great niece over in Australia.

Something nice HAS happened this week though, I have been invited on a knitting graffiti road trip to New Plymouth! Tash of Knitsch Yarns and Outdoor Knit has been invited to lead a guerrilla knitting workshop at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in August and she's asked if I'd like to come along. I've never been to New Plymouth before, the gallery looks great, and a knitting workshop is always welcome, so I'm looking forward to it!


  1. I'm so excited you're coming! Hooray!

  2. Bahahaha Love how we've pretty much roped you into joining OutdoorKnit.
    Jealous I don't get to come play too!!
