Expert Knitter Needed

Katrina from Tauranga City

Hi All, my father is looking for someone who can knit him a pair of cable knit kilt hose, in black wool. the lovely lady that knitted his white ones, pictured below, was in her 90's and has sadly passed. He needs them to wear at his grandsons wedding at the end of the year. We've been able to find plain knitted socks online, but no one seems to do the cable knit ones any more.
If you can help, please contact me at hedwignz@gmail.com


Thank you to everyone who has responded. We have been quite overwhelmed with the response. We have heard from a local who has the skill and the pattern, who we have now asked to knit a new black pair for dad. Again, thank you all for your emails and offers of assistance.
Regards, Katrina

Your Big Mac, ordered from here.


New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.

Blatant vandalism

Bellevue Laundromat

Do you recognise these boys? They purposely damaged the flooring at the laundromat on Saturday evening, with an electric scooter. I have also put video footage on Facebook.
