March 2016

Ah the winter knitting season is nearly upon us and the new yarns are starting to appear. Fairly soon we’ll be doing the big changeover from summer to winter yarns. You can still purchase summer yarns but they will be soon in the back rooms of the Shop. Easter comes early this year so don’t forget to stock up on a project to do over the Easter vacation! Talking of Easter my elderly Aunt (96 this coming weekend) was bitten on the arm by a baby bunny and has developed a nasty ulcer which stopped her knitting endeavours. She had been knitting knee rugs for the residents of her retirement home who use a new mini bus for when they go on trips. I now have the job of finishing them off for her until her arm heals, so my Easter message is beware of  bunnies no matter how cute or little they are and stick to the chocolate variety!

We now do deliveries to the following hospitals free of charge: the Austin, the Olivier Newton John Wellness Centre and Box Hill. It is probably easiest to phone your order in and pay for it over the phone and we’ll deliver it to you as soon as possible.

Current Projects: the knitted knee rugs (see above), baby bunnies (the woolly kind) for the window and a summer shrug which may have to be abandoned until next summer as I’m getting itchy fingers looking at the new yarns!
