But it was getting kinda' pricey. My mum has always been a knitter and with the arrival of grandchildren this has gone crazy! I keep telling her she should sell some of her stuff as it is just gorgeous, but she keeps refusing. Anyway, to the point, I remembered that mum sometimes orders from the Bendigo Woollen Mill so thought I should check it out.
It's great! I love it! Check it out http://www.bendigowoollenmills.com.au/ And the best thing about discovering it when I did? They are having a sale!!! Yes, I was excited. A 200g ball of 100% cotton is $10. How good is that? But wait, it gets better. If you order over $30 postage is free (just in Australia, sorry). So I put in an order for 3 balls of cotton for me and 1 for mum, thinking I would see what I thought and if I really like it, I will go ahead and buy some more.

I think they were actually delivered to my place this week, but as I was at work they didn't leave them. I tried to go pick them up from the Post Office yesterday - I got up nice and early and arrived at the PO at 6.10am. It wasn't open. Argh! My delivery card said it opens at 6.30am, but I am positive I read a sign inside that said 6am. I wasn't going to wait for 20 minutes so off I went back home, parcel-less and sad. I am now looking forward to Saturday when I can go pick it up!
