Once all the presents had been opened and the boys had had a chance to run around for a bit I started them on the decorating of the pillowcases. We had too many as a couple of people didn't arrive in the end, but George's cousin Bradley did arrive and so did Mekhye from across the road after he'd finished his sports practice. They all did a great job on their decorations.

|Enormous rugby ball; very cool|

If you're in Christchurch and need/want yarn do pay them a visit; I suspect with where they are they're probably not getting as much business as they used to and we really don't want to lose such a valuable resource.
|Definitely open, the door is around the back, fairly inconspicuous, but has the Knitworld sign over the top of it.|
|A selection of yarns, this is the heavier weight section and you can see the Brother and Singer sewing machines|
|My favourite section, sock yarns. The one second from left on top is one I came home with; Merino/Possum recycled.|
|Needles including Knitpro; my favourite brand that they stock|
|Pattern books and more yarn.|
Speaking of knitting, I've done 29 rows on my Baby Surprise Jacket and I'm loving the way the handspun yarn is looking in it. No photo of that yet, maybe later.
