When I go to Melbourne a visit to the wool store Morris and Sons is always on my agenda and on my last visit with my daughter we both popped into the shop. I was going to buy some replacement pins for my Knit Pro needles that had broken. The shop assistant informed my that if I sent the broken pins to the store I would get replacements for free as they had a lifetime guarantee, I was thrilled with that. The pins that had broken were bamboo and I opted to replace them with steel ends as I find I put too much strain on the pins when knitting and if they are fine then the end result is breakage.
While we were in the shop we noticed a lovely hot water bottle cover featuring Kate Davies ‘s Sheep’s Heid pattern. The pattern was for free so I got one of those to take home. I didn’t need to buy any wool as I knew I had scraps at home suitable for the pattern.
A very quick knit and this is the end product. Without the bottle and with the bottle.
