Knitting in Napier

Wow what an awesome weekend, Knit August nights retreat, organised by Maree and James.

A weekend long knitting retreat, with classes, meal, tour round Design Spun Wool Mill, yarn market - ohh I spent lots!!! Even the weather was awesome. We stayed in the lovely Harbour view motel - highly recommended location in
Ahuriri, right by the beach and boardwalk. There are some lovely cafes very close by: Boardwalk and Milk and Honey are to name a few that I can personally recommend.


It was a great weekend for learning new skills, making new friends and getting to know old ones even better. There are some lovely pics on Maree's website for you to view. I did buy some very yummy yarn....... More cotton from YarnZ, Morag's lovely Vintage Purls sock yarn, some Skeins wool possum merino too.

There is even a ravelry forum, so go and sign up ready for next year!

A Decade Old Today......

Happy Birthday Mate. A Decade old today.

Wow for a boy we can not get out of bed he was up at 5.30am wanting to go downstairs.

He was very proud of his new steel string Ashton guitar, cut out with in-built tuner! He is off playing it already.

He also got a New Orleans Hornets basketball, basket ball hoop, Oasis guitar tab book, bakugauns and lots of cards.
