Craft Expo

Yesterday my Mum and I headed out to Homebush for the Craft Expo. A rare day where she's not working on a Friday when the kids are both in daycare.

So we shopped.... lots....

A beautiful Sublime DK pattern book from Yarns Galore, full of beautiful patterns.

Some Japanese clear bags and fancy ties for Easter treats for the kids at daycare, 4 beautiful hanks of 50% Merino/50% Silk from Lush Yarn down to $10 each from $22, a ball of Sublime Baby Bamboo 8ply all on top of a bunch of new felt squares for car wraps...

and a fabric panel. Mum bought me the super cute Monkey tape measure to take with me to Melbourne.. isn't he adorable!

The Chocolate and Luxury Lush yarns are going to be striped and the single ball of navy Sublime 8ply on the bands for this "Smuggler" Jumper from Liam from the new book...

and Mum's Lemon Pie and Pink Lush Yarn are going towards this for Bella also from the new book

While we were there my lovely friend Sarah delivered my latest fabric order from the US to the show... talk about good delivery!


Valori Wells Urban Flannel, Paula Prass Summer Soire and some Jennifer Paganelli Flower Power...

some Michael Miller dots for the lining for Liam's new wool jacket

and some Heather Ross for the lining of Bella's wool jacket.

I really like that Sublime book too but havent knitted anything from it as yet. The cardigan and jumpe you are going to make are both lovely knits. I adore lush yarns and what a wonderful bargain you got for only $10 each. It seems your mum should have a free day more often to go shopping with you!

What a great pile of goodies! Oh how I wish there were some things like that locally for me. I'm sure I'd spend a ton of money, but I'm so jealous of people that have these great things so close to home for them.
