Yarn + bloggers + one super cute baby

I performed a vital public service today: I taught a very cute 5 month old how to shop for yarn. Never too early to start, says I!

Yarn Shopping

Bwahahah! Actually, I taught his mum, the talented Julia Bobbin, and very good she proved at it too. Oh, and that bag I'm holding? Er, well, yes, I may have purchased a little myself. As did Nic. Our mission today was to come, to paw and to conquer. Well, maybe credit cards were conquered, but nobody got hurt in the process. Besides, it's for a jolly good cause - there is going to be a Miette knit-a-long in the works rather soon. Exciting times!

So watch this space, knitters! We'd love you all to join in, so once we figure out our time frames and all the other bits and bobs I'll pop the details up here, and we might even run a class over at Handmaker's Factory for beginner knitters who want to knit along but need a little help. Yarny goodness for one and for all! Hoorah!

  1. Ooooh Sunspun - got my latest yarn from them too after you gave us the heads up that the Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic was being discontinued. Those ladies were awesome at helping me out.

  5. Yay! I'm currently working on a Miette, but I have a feeling I could use a few of them in my wardrobe!

  6. I would certainly be keen for a midget stitch-along. But I am very, very beginner. Any chance it will start and end before mid August?

  9. gosh. Look at the face of Julia's little one. Too cute. I'm jealous of the fun you three seemed to have. Why can't I live on your side of the equator?

  10. Yay for more yarn converts! I am very new to knitting and am currently working at Miette as my third pattern (yay for a cowl and a hat). A knitalong would be awesome!

  11. A Miette knit along sounds fun, I have actually already started, so either I finish and start a new one, or I stop do a different project, then carry on...hmm dilemma

  12. Well done on the shop. Now have you heard of the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show?? Now THAT's worth a visit. It's $20 to get in but they have four or five massive sheds full of crafty supplies to purchase (fibre focused of course), a fashion show, knitted/crocheted/felted competition entries on display, lots of sheep and goats and such to visit in the other sheds, food and more. If you love yarn it's well worth a visit. And it's on next month. www.sheepshow.com
