Let's Go Shopping

I have some stock left over if you are interested.
I also have some swifts on order and will update when they arrive, but in the meant time keep shopping!

These prices do not include postage.

If you are interested in purchasing please send me an email (trydyeing at or contact me on Ravelry (seeApenny)

Blocking wires -
$20 a kit
The wires are 1m long
include 12 medium wires + 4 fine wires (the medium wires are slightly flexible but hold a good strong line, the fine wires will be better for curving)
[I have several kits left that have 12 medium + 2 fine + 2 very fine (there's very little difference but the very fine wires do bend a lot more if you are doing curved lace)]
The kits are stainless steel so won't rust and come in a sturdy cardboard tube that travels well through the post.

$7 for 100 pins
Also rustproof these pins come in a handy little container.

Wondering how the wires work?
Here's an example. I used 7 of the medium wires and about 75 pins to pin out this scarf - I did use a lot of pins to space holes where I wanted them.

Crochet Hooks
$15 for 12 hooks 2.5 to 10.0mm
These aluminium hooks are very comfortable to use and a great price for 12 hooks.
