I popped into my local yarn shop yarn and co over the weekend to buy a new set of 5.5mm knitting needles. I had somehow lost one and as any knitter knows, there isn’t much you can do with just one knitting needle! I was very proud and pleased to see my Millie the aussiegurumi cat happily sitting on a bench right in the middle of the store.
I made Millie for Chris, one of the proprietors as a sort of “it’s nice to meet you and I am really glad we have a local yarn shop opened” type of gift. Apparently Karen, the other proprietor, has cats so when I get a moment I plan to make some minis for her too.
So if you live anywhere near Melbourne, Fitzroy and you haven’t been there yet. Check out yarn and co. It isn’t just a craft shop. They have groups, classes, workshops, great variety and prices and most importantly. High Tea. Hmmm. Knitting and High Tea!
I leave you with one more pic of Millie looking a bit daunted about going in her gift bag. (she looked happy at the shop though)
