Isabelle and I popped into the Stitches and Craft Show this morning, whilst Paul was working in Brunswick.
I bought 2 patterns, one for the teddy in the bottom right hand corner, and little phone pouches to embroider. I can see some people getting phone pouches for xmas this year.
I also popped into a few of the yarn stalls and bought some Cocoon wool, for a baby jumper. It was only $4.95 a ball, and at Spotlight they sell it for $6.00. I also bought some new Tofutsie sock yarn from Eco Yarn in the gorgeous pink colors, and I also bought some Jigsaw sock yarn, in a brand new shade. Apparently they have released 4 new shades all with pink in them. They are all nice colors too.
And lastly the pink chenille which Isabelle chose for the teddy pattern in the first picture, and a yo yo maker. I am planning on making quite a few of these as I have seen some bags and purses made out of them and I think they look great. i did not go last year to the show so this I think I kept to my budget and did not go overboard.
Oh by the way if anyone knows of any place in Australia that sells those sock blockers could you please let me know.
