Triangle Knitting Construction Pattern

This is an exciting new project, having collaborated with Australian Country Spinners this winter.  These new Construction Designs are now available at all Spotlight stores in Australia and New Zealand.  While in the past I've designed patterns with squares, and rectangles; this is a different approach using Triangles in the most basic knit stitch; super easy!!  Just knit triangles in Cleckheaton Country Naturals Wool, and follow the diagrams in the pattern to join them which will make an awesome garment.

Bon Voyage!!

This is Alex who has been working at the studio for 10 months. Alex is a graduate of a BA in Textile Design from Massey University, and she's leaving us to go to London, having acquired an internship with Selvedge Magazine. We're going to miss her, and I think my customers will too!! I will be lucky to find a replacement with the same enthusiasm for textiles and knitting!!

Deserted Beaches

All the beaches close to us are black-sand/pebble beaches, so this is where we go for a white-sand beach swim. It's less than an hour's drive, and we have it all to ourselves! This is my idea of a beach experience, we usually take a picnic, some fishing rods, and spend the whole day out here.

The Farmers Market

Dropped into the Napier Farmers Market for fresh fruit, pastries and coffee for breakfast this morning in the Park. It's part of my routine for picking up morning tea supplies from the German baker for our Workshops. It was nice to soak up some sunshine before being in the shop all day.
