Victorian Yarn Ramble

Lil and I had the opportunity to join part of the Victorian Yarn Ramble organised by the Indie Road  Travel Team of Gaille Smith and Chris Cregan. They made the trip simple and enjoyable. They have done their homework - chosen desitinations for the wool and food lovers. Lil and I recommend that you check out the tours they offer and seriously think about joining them on one of the tours.  Our day started in Melbourne - early, we had to meet at 7.30am. We found coffee and the streets looked deserted.  We journeyed to Inverleigh for breakfast and then on to the Western District where we stopped off at the Fletcher Jones Garden & Market, a great initiative set...

Can be used instead of a 20-25cmm circular needle or a set of DPN's.  Needle sizing ranges from 2.00mm-5.00mm. Double-pointed needles with a twist - or flexibility rather!
