Stitches ‘N’ Things
I have no photo of the shop but it is only a tiny shop in the main street of Lakes Entrance.
Recently I made a return visit to this wonderful shop. It is a treasure trove of all things you need for knitting, crochet and sewing, but not dressmaking patterns or dress fabric. There is so much to see in this small shop. It is crammed full of all you could possibly need.
The shop is run by Karen and she is a mine of information on all matters relating to the above mentioned hobbies. I have asked her for assistance on several occasions and she willingly provides the answers.
I was visiting because I needed to purchase some wool for a project I am about to begin in readiness for winter.
I am using an old pattern I had and my stash doesn’t have enough of one colour to enable me to make this cardigan so I had to purchase some.
While I was there I saw the most beautiful crocheted baby’s jacket made out of cotton and even though I have no baby to knit for at the moment I know there are a couple of acquaintances that are expecting so I also bought the pattern for the jacket and the cotton to go with it. I get trapped every time I go into this shop.
The pattern calls for merino and silk but the sample in the shop was made with this particular cotton and it looked magnificent. It was in pink shades but I have chosen more sea/type colours.
Check out Karen’s website if you live in Australia she may be able to supply you with the things you need or things you didn’t know you needed.
