As of today New Zealand has 102 confirmed cases of Covid-19, thankfully no deaths as yet.
Stressful times for all.
Last week I felt it was only a matter of time before we moved into self-isolation so I armed myself with supplies to keep myself going. No, not toilet rolls - but the essentials like wine, chocolate and knitting wool.
I don't think I've covered knitting before on this blog. I used to knit a lot, but haven't in recent years. However I am feeling the urge to try it again. I bought 2 skeins in different colours of variegated merino and decided to make the Reyna shawl from Ravelry.
This is in the colourway Lotus
The other skein I bought is variegated shades of red. I haven't taken a photo yet.
I didn't show a photo of my Witching Hour that I got back from the framer. Here it is
And a few updates of my cross stitch.
This is where I am at with Sans Souci. This is still on my q snaps so took a screenshot of how it appears on PatternKeeper
And this is where I am at on my new start Naida. Loving how this is coming along and enjoying doing diagonal parking for the first time.
