Today I had to take my car back to the car yard we bought it from due to the ignition not working correctly - it was a case of hit or miss to get the car to start - not good. So we set out for Brisbane at 10 this morning. The car yard told us it would take AT LEAST 4 hours - so I said I was going to go find the real American yarns store. For you Aussies that want to purchase the American Yarn here in Australia - This is the place for you. You can find a link to the online store HERE!!!! So Brisbanites - you can go visit the store in GROVELY - its easy to find just near the station.
Anyway - Here I am outside of the shop - looking like a drowned rat as we had just walked through the deluge of a thunderstorm from the station :)
Here I am with the lovely proprietor... Gabrielle :)
I walked away with some large skeins of Bernat cotton - which is actually sugar and cream cotton in a larger skein. I'm so pleased now that I made the effort as Gabrielle is lovely and so is the shop - I could have spent LOTS of money there and will do in the future (as I have already done in the past via mail order!!)
A special thankyou to my wonderful husband whom tagged along for the ride and whom played photographer... and didn't blink an eyelid at how much I spent :)
If you have always longed to be able to purchase the correct yarn for your projects - be sure to check out the shop either in the flesh or online!!
