Lots, as usual.
Some of us went to a very enjoyable spin-in at Palmerston North. There was a little alarm afterwards when the minibus wouldn’t start but that was soon fixed.
The Wool Shed had an Open Day one Wednesday – free admission and shearing demos from time to time all day. We had heaps of visitors to talk to. It was school holidays and the shearing was very popular.
We had a series of inspiring classes with Jenny Hart, knitter extraordinaire. Participants were challenged with patchwork squares, embellished squares and directional knitting. I don’t know about everybody else but one of the things I learned was a lot about recovering from mistakes!
Another day we were charmed by a colourful poncho for a granddaughter –
– and by some tiny little outfits for babies
And we were in awe of a rug – hand-woven and knotted. There are 19,580 knots!
So what’s next? Our Spin-in, of course! It’s on September 10th at Wairarapa College, Masterton. Look at this blog again nearer the time for full details, and maps, and everything you need to know. We’d love to see you there!
