We've not had many summery days here in Wellington, but I wanted to capture a little bit of sun when it appeared recently. Perhaps some warm weather is still on its way, like a parcel lost in the post?
I made a few sun catchers (details here) with flowers pressed back at the start of the season. One for a friend and one for our kitchen window, featuring hydrangea petals and a carnation, pansies and fuschia.
I couldn't resist ordering a copy of Laine magazine from Scandinavia - it features beautiful knitting patterns, photography and writing. You can see the patterns included here on Ravelry. I love the 'Nordic arrows shawl' but I think the cardigan might be my first cast-on.
I took the second photo above while we were in the South Island last weekend, for a friend's wedding. After the ceremony, my sisters-in-law and I walked up into the valley behind the crowd with our glasses of wine, where the light was like honey.
