Crochet in Canterbury

I've finally got a new finished object! My sewing room hasn't been unpacked at all, so I'm still having a crack at the more portable craft of crochet.

This scarf is my first project, and I quite like it. I wear scarves most days through winter.

We're currently at a model aeroplane rally in Canterbury, south of Christchurch. Apologies for any odd formatting on this post; I'm using my cell phone. Winter here has a lot more bite than in Auckland, so I'm snuggled up in the car...

It's a stunning landscape. Don't be too jealous though; it's only about 3°C and windy!

Are you working on any projects that seem to be moving too slowly? Let's talk about it!

  1. It's frustrating when you can't sew - but how lovely to be moved in and having the potential soon of a sewing room. Crochet and knitting are good put up and down crafts. Your photo's are gorgeous. New Zealand is beautiful but i don't envy you the cold - 23 degrees here today.

    1. It will be a sewing room/guest wing, so it will get maximum use! I'm enjoying our new house but can't wait until it's totally unpacked.

  2. That's looking pretty good! Scarves are such excellent things to make - they don't take too long and they are eminently useful.

    I just finished a very drawn-out project: a vest. Knitting the two pieces was as straightforward as I hoped it would be; knitting up the neck and armbands, on the other hand, seemed to take forever. It's done now, just in time for the weather to warm up. Argh!

    1. I have the same problem where hemming sewn garments takes about 10 times longer than making them. Sigh. Glad you've finished though!

  3. Looks lovely and the colours are great. What wool did you use? Its always so satisfying to make things that are really useful :)

    1. The colours are lovely. The purple/blue one is Moda Vera Luminoso, which I got on special from Spotlight. I think it's around 50% wool. The black one is just a bog-standard acrylic 8 ply. Making useful things is definitely a bonus!
