Ripple Rib Socks by Christie

Ripple Rib Sock Pattern

I was delighted to recently receive an email from Knitty.com about a yarn purchase... It got me thinking about how was a Canadian online knitting website contacting me about a yarn purchase? 

After a little investigation it turned out that one of our local pattern designers the
lovely and very talented Christie Wareham-Norfolk who recently relocated to our wonderful Tasmania live not far from me and was looking to use one of my yarns in her new Ripple Rib Sock pattern.

Ashford e-Ball Winder Review and Thoughts

Posted by Sally Ridgway on

Ashford recently released an electric ball winder, Yippee, they had my attention. I have been on the lookout for an electric winder for some time but getting them from the US is a costly exercise.

This little gem looked fabulous from the first time I spotted it and after procrastinating for about 3-4 weeks I jumped in and ordered one from The Thread Collective who were posting them on Facebook at the time. 

I put my order through and ticked the Express Post box expecting it to be 2-3 weeks away and to be shipped directly from Ashford in New Zealand. I was super dooper surprised when 3 business days later it arrived at my local post office and was shipped the same days as the order was placed from The Thread Collective in Brisbane.
