I knit a spade.
Sometime mid last year Ronald McDonald House in Wellington sent me an...odd request. Would I knit a spade?
Of course! A visit to the old house pre-demolition cemented the decision - they do such amazing work (and the McDonalds connection did make me wary at first but it didn't take long to get over that). The chance to help the House create more space for families in a time of need is pretty special.
Now is your chance to buy my spade (or someone else's - they are all pretty amazing) and donate to a fantastic cause.
If you're a local, you can also see it in person - just pop in to the Academy of Fine Arts at Queen's Wharf before the 12th of Feb.
