As The Wattle Comes Out ...

As The Wattle Comes Out ...

Well, the wattle is starting to come out which means that winter is almost over.  But that doesn't stop me from knitting.  In fact, with new products in the store, I am very eager to try all the new yarns.  The new Cumbria colours are just lovely and now I am selling Ridge Top Fibre Studio yarns .... well, I just want to cast that on straight away!

I think I currently have a dozen or more projects on the needles, but I can't seem to stop myself from casting on all the yarns.  Surely I'm not the only one who does this.

Hands up who loves Kaffe Fassett colours?!

Hands up who loves Kaffe Fassett colours?!

When the new Kaffe Fassett colours in Rowan Felted Tweed arrived, well, I was a little excited.  I had them spread out to look at them properly and I just couldn't take my eyes off them.  My mind was racing - what to knit, how soon can I cast on?

I just wanted to hug the colours to me.  They made me feel so happy.  It's wonderful how colours can do that, don't you think?  Not to mention when happy colours are then transformed into yarn.

It just doesn't get better than that.  Take a look for yourself, I'm sure you'll agree with me.

Hello and Welcome

Hello and Welcome

Well, what a ride! 

As you may be aware, I have bought The Wollombi Wool Store and have renamed it the Hunter Valley Wool Store.  The location has also moved.  We are in Singleton, in the heart of the Hunter Valley, NSW.

These are very exciting times and I can only hope you will join me on this yarn journey.  I have been able to purchase some new colours of our favourites such as Rowan's Kidsilk Haze and Noro's Silk Garden; and I have also purchased some colours in Rowan's Summerlite 4ply. 

I love knitting all year round and Summerlite 4ply is a wonderful cotton yarn that I have just cast on to make a tee shirt, ready for those summer days.
