I just love when the weather is this crisp and cool!
The possibilities are almost endless with all the new and exciting yarns that we have had arriving….and that is without the shipments that are due in the next few week!
But with all the new yarns it means we have to say goodbye to some lines that we will no longer be stocking. As much as I’d love to continue to carry these yarns there are just too many new yarn that I want to add to the store this year.
Why not snap up a bargain before these beautiful yarns are all gone!

Olive by Helga Isager
My poor Olive sits neglected…the black yarn, tiny needles and many, many stitches make for difficult night knitting and that is when the bulk of my knitting time is. I have recently purchased a great light – I really should pull out Olive and attempt to finish it for this winter!!
We have also topped up on some of the popular and out of stock Booklets including Norah Gaughan.

Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans
Colour therapists tout green as the most restful colour. This design was created with that in mind…the ultimate in restfulness with four shades of green and a neutral. Two rows of crocheted cluster stitch combine to form pretty, daisy-shaped blocks of colour, with each daisy fitting neatly into the next.
We have been fielding many phone calls and emails in regards to our current Malabrigo shipment. We had hoped that we would have it in store this week but unfortunately it has been held up in customs in the US.
We are working as quickly as we can to have it processed and on its way, fingers crossed it will be here next week.

|Children’s Lean To Knit Scarf Kits|
This week we finished off our Children’s Learn to Knit Scarf Kits for the New Farm State School Fete that is on this Sunday!
We had such a great time designing the patterns and creating the kits and we thought we they would be great for the upcoming School Holidays.
If you are looking for something creative to do with your little ones over the holidays perhaps set aside an afternoon or two for quality time together passing on your skills.
Garter Striped Scarf
As this pattern only requires the knit stitch it is ideal for the younger knitter.
Ribbed Striped Scarf
This pattern incorporates both the knit and purl stitch plus knitting with two colours as you create a 2 x 2 rib and stripes.
The kits contain a copy of your preferred pattern, two balls of Biggan Design DK Merino and a set of 23cm bamboo needles. The colour combinations are endless!
Kits are available via pre-order and will be ready for collection at the beginning of the school holidays.

Pattern: African Flower Hexagon by Lounette Fourie & Anita Rossouw
Yarn: Biggan Design DK Merino
I also whipped up an adorable little hat for a new babe that we see each morning and afternoon at school pick up. My miss J was super proud to hand over the hat to her friends mum as a gift for her school friends new little sister.
Feeling the chill this week I whipped up an instant gratification project.

Our Thursday evening social groups have been buzzing with coffee and sweet treats and they have been a great way to start winding down for the weekend. We’d love to see you in store from 5pm-8pm!
