  5. Hello! I have just taken up knitting since my son was born in 2011. My family and I are moving to Wellington from Perth in a few weeks time and I would love to join your group once we have settled in. Probably this will be just after easter. Especially interested in making anything baby related, just hope I can get my fave dream projects completed while my ill man is still little! I found your completed projects very inspiring and your grandies are just gorgeous. Looking forward to meeting your knitting circle ๐Ÿ™‚ my WIPs include mohair scarf, squares for a baby blanket and a big file of patterns I have copied and fallen in love with!

  7. Hi
    Sampler Season (opening on Sunday 29 July at Museum of Wellington City & Sea) is all about knitting. Stop by any day to knit a few rows of the continuous scarf and check out the pics of Wellington’s yarnbombers. Bring you knitting to the free live gigs every Sunday afternoon. See for details.
    Hope to see you there

  8. Hi Michelle,

    My name is Keryn Roberts and I am a member of the Wellington Rotaract Club. We are running a project called Rug Up for Winter and are trying to collect 100 knitted hats to give to School Children at Natone Park School.

    We are running low and so are contacting knitting groups to see if their knitters might be able to knit us a childrenโ€™s hat over the next week. We are donating the Hats on the 24th of July so would need them by then.
    We can supply any wool that is needed also.

    Sorry for the last minute nature of the request and we appreciate any support we can get.

    Best wishes,

  9. Hi there! We, the Rotaract Club of Wellington, have just launched our Rug Up For Winter project, and we are hoping to get various knitting circles around Wellington involved. We are aiming to provide 100 kids at a decile one school in Porirua with hand knitted woollen hats to keep them warm this winter. We can provide a pattern and wool if necessary. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in helping us out.

    You can find out more about the project here:

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Hello. I have come across your blog while searching for a pattern.

    You see, my grandmother is a knitter and crotcheter. A long time ago she made a test square for a pattern, and she has since lost the pattern and really wants to make an afghan with it.

    My search for the pattern lead me to your blog, and I see you have made a blanket with the very pattern I’m looking for.

    It is this pattern

    If you could manage to email me this pattern I would very appreciated and it would make my grandmother extremely happy. My email is

    Thank you.

  12. Hi, what a great site, can’t believe you’re in Lyall Bay, so close. I have been searching for a pattern I used to have. Pattern is Thorobred scheepsjeswol pure wool brushed pattern no 231. This is a lacy, slip over top which knits quick and only takes 2 balls of wool. Thanks so much and I’d appreciate any help, cheers Gail

  14. Hope I’m not too late … Just stumbled across your blog. Is iKnit still operating? If yes, could you send me the details please?
    Biting my nails till your reply.

  15. Hi Ali, the address is flying through cyberspace as we speak and you should have it now…hope you can make it tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Hi fellow knitters ๐Ÿ™‚ I am keen to come along to this group. I tried a few months ago, but my youngest was still needing her evening breastfeed and wasn’t going to bed until 8pm. She’s now (at just turned two!) quite capable of going to bed with that feed, so I’d love to come along.

    Can you let me know the address – I may try and come along tonight, if possible.


  17. Hi Michelle. My name is Alisha and I found your website through your son, Joel. I live in California and have become friends with him through an online forum. I knitted a few things for Ania in her first few months. I’m contacting you because I plan to come to New Zealand in the near future. I’m currently a college student, but want to travel there when I get my A.A. degree hopefully in 2011. I’ve got a few questions for you, and would love to have a conversation. I’d appreciate it if you contacted me via e-mail.

    Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
