This past weekend I flew south to Christchurch to spend a couple of days with my family. We drove to Hanmer Springs, to soak in the hot pools and relax. One of the big reasons I love heading south (besides seeing my family) is the general lack of other people the further down the country you travel. Auckland may not be a particularly big city by international standards but there’s nothing like escaping for a couple of days!
These photos were taken on a sojourn into the Molesworth Station, the largest farm in NZ. I got my dad to take a couple of pics, since I realised I was wearing a home made outfit.
The bottoms are a pair of Papercut Anima pants that I made from some merino wool jersey that I bought at The Fabric Store. These pants are incredibly comfortable and warm and I’m wearing them right at this minute! They are the perfect indoor pants for when you want a step up from pyjamas! The sweater is made from a merino jacquard. I traced the pattern for this from a RTW sweater that I already had. This was really easy by the way, since both the front and back are essentially the same.
I’ll leave you with a few scenery pics. Stay tuned for my Turia dungarees which I’m hoping to finish really soon!
