Mid-May

Already! It has indeed been an unusual few weeks: my cold, the rain, Mom, Mana. Did I mention the rain? Wellington and the lower North Island had horrendous rain, landslides and flooding. Nelson? Well, lots and lots of rain and a wee bit of thunder and lightening, in between brilliant Sunny Nelson days. But no flooding. And as you can imagine, vigorous growth outside.

In the last week, as I tried to reenter my normal life, I had two too-exhausted-to-cook-up-excuses days, one productive weaving-and-cleaning day, one town/errands day, and today, Kath and Maria, who didn't know each other, came to lunch. Kath's second musical collaboration is being produced in town, and one of Maria's submissions to Changing Threads received an award; the show opened tonight and I hope to read about it on her FB page soon. Great things happening to friends!!

Me, I finished weaving the black-merino-overdyed-with-walnuts warp end, which was longer than I expected and for a minute I thought I might get a proper scarf, but no, it was around one meter. Now I'm wondering if I should make a crowl.

  2. It's nice soft merino, though, Margery.

  3. When I saw the photo (tiny on my tablet) I thought it was crochet lace and looked to see whose blog I was following. It is gorgeous and a cowl would be great.

  4. Hand-stitching, Dianne. Yikes. I'll leave it for when I feel more courageous.

  6. Oh, thank you, Peg. The way things are (not) progressing, I'm bound to do just that, LOL.
