Some things we have learnt lately...
- Merino socks DO work in summer... not only peaking out from under your sandals, but they keep you cool when it's warm, and warm when it's cool (especially in Wellington where southern winds pick up on a whim).
- Don't throw away your scraps! We are still waiting on new fabric held up by Covid to come into the country. Luckily we keep what falls under the cutting table so are sewing using scraps. I promise this does not impact the integrity of your undies... they are possibly even lovelier.
- If the mob steal your caravan, don't give in! Our beautiful caravan was nicked off our street a few months ago. The cops brought her back a little under the weather so we spent the weekend installing a kitchen we got off some friends who were doing up their cottage. Love.
- Kids will not help you install new kitchens in caravans... especially when it's hot and they have devices. Parental fury at our place a few times over the weekend.
- Good things come from small places. While our fabrics sits in port, the wool for our socks is coming in on time and on point. We source it from Aotearoa and send it to small town Manawatu to be knitted into designs dreamed up by us. Spinning local since ages ago.
That's all from us in Orongomai this week. Let us know what you would add to your list of recent revelations! Maybe we'll send a few out with next week's Munro news.
Kia pai tō koutou rā
