I have been knitting for about 50 years and it is one of my passions - the other is my garden. I love to try out different techniques and wool.... mostly I knit for others but last year I actually made myself a beautiful cardigan! Some of my favourite wool brands are: Sublime, Millamia, Drops, Paons Extra Fine Merino, Cleckheaton Extra Fine Merino, Bendigo Woollen Mills of Australia have a superb collection of merino wools, Rowan, Debbie Bliss as well as Australian Alpaca Yarn
