With strict luggage weight restrictions I am very limited as to what I can buy in New Zealand's thriving op-shops. A shame as they are very tempting.
The odd skein or ball of wool, some I have already made into ascots or neck scarves. I made up the pattern and know it by heart, some refinements needed.
I thought that the 4ply wool crepe would make a sweater for Oliver, now 2 years old , but on closer inspection each ball is a slightly different tone. Ah well, I'm sure they will be used somehow.
Best buy was a 40s patchwork knitting bag, not only do I love it but it was free!! as there is some damage. I
Although they are not vintage I am also picking up bamboo or wooden needles because apparently I can now take them through security at the airport.
As usual, a few interesting scarves, some already for sale in one of my etsy shops.
ps, I'm trying to link this to a charming blog that links peoples op-shop finds 'Blackbird has spoken' but, as usual, this techno dinosaur is making a mess of it.
