Super Sneak Peek – Bargain Basement Price Araucania Ranco is HERE!

OMG, I’m so excited!  My bargain-basement priced Araucania Ranco Solid is here!  Yay!

I’ve waited two months for it to arrive and now you can get excited too because instead of $25 per 100g skein, you will only pay $16.50!  That’s a huge 35% off!

I have 5 gorgeous colours available which I will be listing very soon!

Araucania Ranco is a lovely, soft, kettle-dyed Chilean sock-weight wool blended with polyamide for stretch and resilience.  100g skeins, 344m per skein – one skein is enough for one pair of adult women’s socks.  Needle size is 3.25mm.

Here are some freebie patterns which could be knitted with this lovely yarn:

Is this the last Panda Zoomy in existence?

Ever since another blogger Salihan Crafts asked me for a substitute for Panda Zoomy, I have been obessed with this yarn!  It has now been discontinued so it’s been a race against time to find the last remaining balls and did I hit thejackpot on the weekend!

K-Mart Arana Hills, Brisbane, has now been cleaned out of their stock of Zoomy – for $2 a ball!!  Considering I’ve seen this yarn for $7 a ball at Spotlight, I could not believe my eyes!  $2 a ball – yippee!  I’d bought the pattern book some weeks before and so I was thrilled to have found enough to knit all these cute outfits for my kids – only problem is – I can’t knit !  LOL!  So I will have to pay someone to do it – any takers??

Zoomy Pink – colour 37 – 10 balls

Zoomy denim – Colour 50 – 22 balls

Zoomy Blue and Green – Blue Colour 53, 3 balls and Green – Colour 72 – 1 ball
