day tripping haul.....


The other day Gary had a day off work so we decided to do a day trip to the country. We headed towards Bendigo so I could visit the woollen mills and replenish my stash......

I found lots of lovely wool that I couldn't resist!

I picked up a bargain with the mint green balls in the plastic bags at the front, it is the exact same wool I use heaps of, just without the labels, and it is a discontinued colour and one of my favourites, so I have been trying to stock up when I see it in wool shops before I can't get it any more. Anyhoo, there it was sitting on a shelf in the infamous bargain back room, bags and bags of my favourite wool! Usually around $5.80 a ball, here $2.50 a ball. Yay! I've stocked up!!

Also picked up quite a few other bits and pieces that should keep me busy for a while. We stopped in at Kyneton on the way back, and the wool shop there 'Pick up Stitches' was having a sale, so I found a few more balls to take home with me!

Stay tuned for lots of new stuff from this haul!


  1. That's a good haul :) I love the new look of your blog, it really stands out.

  2. Oooooh the joy of new yarn!!! Especially a color you love that much!!
    Have a wonderful day,

  3. how fun! I'm slowly building my stash so that (in my impatience) I can begin new projects on a whim (ie: straight away)
    Can't wait to see what you create...

  4. Hey Jules, great to be able to stock up for half price, woohoo..........

    Just as well you went the 'other day' and not today, it'w wet, wet, wet, here.

    Look forward to seeing all the lovely projects you're going to make with all this yarny goodness,

  5. I've never been to the Bendigo woollen mill, will have to have a look next time I go. Pick up stitches is a favourite, each Friday when I drop my little one off at kinder I take a peek to see what's new / cheap!

  6. Great yarn haul - such pretty colors. :)

  7. Oh gorgeous is all that yarn. I would so love to make a trip to Bendigo :)
