Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wow! its almost Christmas. It must be a sign of my age that I feel the years passing faster and faster.

Congratulations to Susan S who has won our November draw of one SOAK Box. She gets to pick her colour! Lucky 🙂

We will be posting  items up to this Friday, and all parcels after Wednesday are automatically upgraded to Express Post at no extra charge. We will be closed from the 21st December to the 6th January 2014. But will be operating over the December 2013 to January 2014 school holidays. We will post on non public holiday weekdays.

I will be trying to complete 2 pairs of socks in fingering weight on 2.25mm needles and trying to replicate Katniss Everdeen’s cowl in Super Bulky weight on 10 – 15mm needles. “Broomstick handles” I overheard by husband muttering.

Here is the lustworthy cowl I am trying to replicate. LINK

I think I will use the Herringbone stitch for the body of the cowl and will have to investigate how to make the collar stand up without too much weight.

  1. Have seen recommendations of your yarn in several places. I have enough for my plans but the best laid plans go wrong. My little granddaughter, 9, has just been diagnosed with leukaemia and will start chemotherapy on Friday, two days away. We have been told she will be bald in a couple of weeks. I was planning to buy something organic for hats but not wool as it is still summer in Sydney with sticky February to follow.

    I’ve just ordered three lots of your organic cotton for hats for her. I also liked the details given about the dyes used for the colours.

  2. I left a comment earlier but it doesn’t seem to have shown up.

    I was very happy to find your collection of organic cotton. MY nine year old granddaughter has just been diagnosed with leukaemia and starts cho in a coule of days. She will be bald in about two weeks.

    II’ve ordered several colours of your organic cotton to make her hats, after seeing your site recommended in several places.
