I wanted to go to The Fabric Store. I'd been wanting some merino knit to make some tops for the kids. Will had a couple of tops from Eureka which were really great, but I didn't want to pay NZ$80 for a hoodie that I could easily sew myself. The Fabric Store's website says they stock merino wool knits, and they do! There weren't all colours of the rainbow, but there was a nice assortment of colours. They were $28-$36/m which I thought was reasonable.
The stripe knit was only $10/m. It's a cotton/spandex.
Now what pattern do I use? Farbenmix Imke or do I look through all of my Ottobre Design magazines?
Since we were in Surry Hills, I took the opportunity to pop into Chef's Warehouse.
I think I see some baking in my future. Probably something chocolaty!
