So wonderful to get your note. I laughed so hard reading about you taking your yarn for a tour around the house. I hoped you laughed about it too. I would have been mildly annoyed at having lost so much knitting, but then had a good chuckle at myself.
Things are good here in Christchurch, New Zealand. Life goes on. There is still so much in the news about the earthquake recovery. Has it really been almost three years since the first big one? There are many people still living in houses with holes in them, and with winter firmly here, it's going to be another cold one for them. People are starting to really speak out, which is not usual for Kiwis, but rightfully so. There are lots of signs of rebuilding though, and slowly but surely, things are improving. Not normal yet...I don't think normal will apply for some time. We still don't know when our house will be repaired, but we are lucky there was not much damage.
So on to happier subjects...like knitting...and yarn! Thank goodness for this craft! It keeps me content in a way I can't explain. It is meditative and satisfies my need to create.
I've been busy working on things. It's amazing how it piles up when I haven't reported in a while. First, I finished my brother Greg's birthday hat.
If my brother needs to go commando, he can turn the hat inside out and use the lining to help him blend in to the scenery.
Love and hugs,
ps. I forgot to mention how awesome that Tunisian crochet is. Wow, really beautiful! I think it's cool that you keep learning new stuff.
