Wool Addiction in Bowral, since 2009.
One asked if four times was a tradition. Some might say it was a bloody habit.
Bowral and Wool Addiction is feeling rather like a second home. Noice. Very noice.
Princepessas (left to right) Vicki, Carol, Jenny, Judy, Helen, Dorothy and along the front (left to right) Diane, Maria, Kerrie and Tristy played tea cosy very nicely with One. Yes they did.
All in the company of Tyler the working dog.

Mosman Needlecraft Shop in (you guessed it) Mosman.
What a fab shop. Lots of really great wool. Different really great wool to the really great wool at Wool Addiction.
And also lots of really great tapestry and cross stitch patterns. Modern, colourful, clever, funny, gorgeous tapestry.
One was almost sucked into having a go at tapestry. ALMOST. Then One remembered a knitting book deadline.....
We learned - a new cast on, a new cast off, knitting in the round on two circular needles, continental knitting, fair isle knitting with two hands, shaping by increasing and decreasing, how to count to 8 and 16 and 32 and 64 and how to divide by 4, how to talk and knit at the same time, how to not talk while learning something tricky, how to stretch the cobwebs away and how not to laugh like a hyena for the camera while holding a tea cosy.
