Another Month gone...with good news!

Well, i can't believe it that another month has gone by ....already.
But i have achieved quite a bit in this time.

2 finished objects (FO's) done.
Mums,as it turned out, large tea cosy. Now i have to buy her a 6 pot tea pot for her birthday present.
Cable hat that i entered in a knit a long (Kal) to be made and completed in the month of April.
I am now ready for the trip to Bendigo Wool Show in mid July....
where i probably will freeze as i now have Queensland blood 
(that is thin blood as we are sub tropical here).

Another productive thing i have done is a podcast.
Yes a podcast of me presenting what i have on my needles and what is off my needles 
and what i propose to do the track.
I called it the 2knitncrochet: Chapter 1 - the beginning.
here is the link:
and after watching it for a bit i do wonder if i will continue on with this podcast..

now for the 
REALLY BIG NEWS..

i would like to introduce you to my new online store:


welcome to one and all.
I hope that you will join me in celebrating all things yarny.
Just to bring you up to date with who i am here is the following:


I began knitting and crocheting when I turned 5.
I was never the girl who played with dolls, that was my sister. I always dragged around a knitting or crochet project with me and I still do.We did play shops with her dolls.
It was a sign of the future.
After a being a cook in a cafe and a career working for 2 banks and then the for the SA government Health industry, I along with my family purchased "Fabrics Plus".
This we successfully ran for over 22 years.
But yes
I also worked in the Travel industry in Hospitality and now I don't.
Since we have now sold.
And that means a year on and I am knitting, crocheting and sewing again.
My craft brain has been realigned....
hence 2knitncrochet has been born.
My mission is to stock not your ordinary yarns, but something interesting, lovely
and squishy.
These are yarns that I will use and are using.
I will also have in my shop project bags and other lovely goodies as well.
some of the lovely squishy yarn

sample of the bamboo circular needles

just 1 of the shawl pins

 and some of the sock yarn i am stocking.

So i am starting with sock yarns and 4 ply yarns and then i will build on some 8ply yarns ans so on.

Also i will be making project bags and other gift items as well .

so come on over and see what is in store and if you are looking for something in particular just email me at got2knitncrochet@gmail.com.

cheers for now....
Bronte and Rod took me out for Mother's day breakfast...Good girl Bronte sitting there all patiently.
