I have just returned from a trip to wellington, new zealand to visit my brother, his wife and my new nephew. This is the view of the city from the hill just behind my brothers house. It is such a beautiful city with wonderful views, great wooden houses and lots of deep green trees.Theses are just a few of the houses in and around the city area. I love the look of all these wooden houses. I could imagine living in one of these places. I could imagine sitting on the verandah and spinning or knitting.

There is also a competition for the longest spun thread from 10g of wool. This was facinating to look at the various entries from around the world. One entry that caught my eye was by an English lady called Amanda Hannaford and here thread was 652.726m long. So you can just imagine how fine it was. Truelly amazing.
I had a great day and only bought a little optim from ms gusset, and some silk/wool mix from the guild. I thought I was very good indeed.
