Unfortunately the shop that use to carry all the specialty wools has stopped stocking them I think it has changed owners. However just down the road is Purls Palace. What a gorgeous shop it has a real mixture of bits and pieces including some Asian style fabrics and some lovely yarns. I was lucky to find another two balls of Noro Silk Garden for the scarf I had started last year, I couldn't resist the gorgeous colours and had purchased two balls last year at the Ballan quilt show.
They don't stock Noro Kureyon but have ordered some in for me, isn't that great service! In the meantime I couldn't resist three hanks of the beautiful Noro Iro. I did try starting the scarf with this but I have decided it's a bit too chunky so another scarf it will be. I love a nice warm scarf especially with beautiful specialty yarn!
I fell in love with a knitted jacket/cardigan and a beautiful shawl. I got the pattern for the cardigan it looked great on the model (don't know about me though) but have to wait for the shawl, I don't know whether I will ever use it but it is beautiful and I want to make one! I also want to put my name down for the Nuno felted scarf workshop in June....just loved it!
In the meantime Sylvester was on his perch next to my chair watching the wool with a glint in his eye.....
Mitts off mister!!!!
