Hooray for...

The Wool Warehouse and oh! my! goodness! me! Super, super cheap wool. Good grief - we pay around 9 pounds for the cheapest ball of sock wool in New Zealand. A country with millions of sheep. The wool is even cheaper from the prices displayed on the Wool Warehouse website,  as tax is deducted before it is shipped out to NZ. Even without the sale prices, it is super cheap for me. Needless to say, a grand order is on its way to me - should keep me out of mischief all winter long. I think my knitting mojo is back - I've knitted over half a pair of socks this weekend and also started and finished 2 dishcloths in 8 hours today! Exam study does that to me...

Winter is here! Rain for days, but enough dry weather to get some washing mostly dry yesterday. We have had huge amounts of rain this week.

For surprise gifts bought to me by a great friend - Crown Lynn plates. I adore them!
 And more gifts from another friend -
 washing getting dry outside (I LOATHE using a clothes drier and washing drying inside the house too!)
 A gorgeous knee rug my mum knitted me -
 woollens being brought out to wear -
 divine new supermarket bag designs
 the other side
 free goodie bags bought home as too many left over from chick flick night
 autumn leaves fluttering in on my bedroom floor
 and time for hedgehog winter flannelette sheets. Hooray!


  1. I'm getting out the flannelettes too.
    It is so cold here now.... I don't like getting up when it is 1 degrees., This morning was -1.... Brrrrrrrr

  2. LOVE wool warehouse xx and even cheaper for me xx .. you have been busy this week x

  3. Thanks so much for the heads up re the Wool Warehouse. My elderly Mum knits lovely socks for all of us and I've been encouraging her to knit to sell to (all my) friends. These prices are going to be a game changer, I believe!
