Craft 2.0 was great fun on the weekend- thank you for the support and it was nice to meet so many blog readers and fellow makers. It was cosy up in the theatre with the rain and wind putting on a show outside- classic Wellington stuff.
Today my mind has been in the USA- my journalism class has been writing live online coverage of election day and we've really been digging in to all sorts of issues and perspectives. My fingers are crossed for you over there, I bet there is a fair bit of nervousness while you wait for the results.
This popped up in my facebook feed this morning- I like subscribing to Bob Dylan.
I managed to make a few little bird pins for my shop, using the very last of the antique illustrations I had been saving. Hope is the thing with feathers, and all that.
Now my shift is over it's time to get back to something very simple- a spot of knitting. I'm making some washcloths from soft cream cotton yarn- I hope to give them as Christmas gifts, along with some handmade soap. That simple meditative garter stitch is a calming one, I can tell you.
