Things that are not yarn

At Bendigo I bought a surprising number of things that are not yarn.

The one that was on the list was a Yarnie: a spike on a lazy sussan that holds a cake of yarn and dispenses it in a smooth orderly manner. I first saw these when Louisa brought hers to Richmond Knitters on Monday, and thought it was nice, but not necissary. A couple of weeks later she had a spare with her, I borrow it to knit on and was hooked. So when I heard that Spinning Woody would have them at Bendigo, buying one was my first priority. I bought the smallest prettiest one I could find, out of Sassafrass, and I'm really enjoying knitting from it. 



I also bought a pair of Ugg boots. They weren't on the list, but they are great and keeping my feet very warm.

And some locking stitch markers, because they were in all different colours and I thought that was special.

So that's another year gone. I hope the next one is as full of knitting joy and the last one was. Also, that by this time next year I have less stash than I do right now.
