Another weekend away. This time to Omapere. We had perfect weather and got in some long walks, the mandatory meal at the Boatshed Cafe in Rawene and a trip on the ferry to Kohukohu.

The puerperium cardigan is finished. This is the second one I've made. I love this pattern. It has no seams - comfortable for baby and no sewing up. Knitting the tiny sleeves in the round can be a bit tricky. Last time I used the recommended "magic loop" method but this time I used double pointed needles and found this easier and faster. I did struggle to find seven matching buttons in my button box. Luckily there were loads of op shops on the way up north with plenty of great buttons - that I've already sewn onto cards for my collection.

Reading: Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. You may've seen the television series of this starring Frances McDormand but I'd still recommend the book. I am so loving it. It's really a series of short stories beautifully written.
