Current obsession

I named this blog after my current obsession, being the ten 200g balls of raspberry coloured 5ply yarn I'm ordering today from Bendigo Woollen Mills (email benwool @ with your name and address for a free shade card and an order form).

This is significant for 2 reasons:

  1. It's costing me a horrible amount of money

  2. I'm finally breaking away from small projects like hats, scarfs and tea-cosys (cosies?) and making something BIG. A jumper in fact, which is something of an essential when you find yourself living in Canberra.

I've found a design which I like, I've nearly made up my mind on the exact pattern and I'm going to buy 1 set of 4mm double-point needles and a 4mm circular needle tomorrow. Then it'll only be a matter of waiting for my wool to arrive, learning how to knit on a circular needle and then actually making the thing. It'll be easy I'm sure. :)
