'Wonderflex Yarn Craft Centre', Malvern Rd, Malvern. Melbourne. Victoria. I have never seen such variety in wool and needles! Here I am knitting an Aran jumper for the Australian Girl doll and having made enough mistakes to understand the pattern I decide I need to go up a size in needles because I'm a tight knitter. I Google yarn shops near Brighton where I'm venturing and am gobsmacked because I come up with five or so!!!! Coming from country NSW this is head-spinning in itself!!! Shall we move to Victoria I think?
We find the shop easily. I step inside and audibly gasp so the sales assistant grins! Needles galore in every size and brand!!! German, circular, bamboo, plastic. Wools!!! Just look at my photographs! And on Fridays and Saturdays - specials galore!!!!
And they're online and incredibly helpful!!! I'm switching allegiance!!!!!
