Stash Bustin'

I watched a video on YouTube on Saturday and was motivated to give this little jacket a try. For this one I used Moda Vera machinewash 8ply crepe with a 4.50mm hook, however I think I'm going to tweak the idea a bit and use 4ply next time.

The colour doesn't look quite right in the picture - don't know if its the dark background or the lighting in this room but the jacket is white.

You know when you see something that you really must have but don't know where to find it ? That's what happened to me when I read this post on Clara's blog and saw these nifty wool needles. Hope you don't mind me pinching your picture Clara.

If any of my fellow Aussies have seen these in any of our shops, can you please let me know where I can buy some. I mentioned them to a lady in my local yarn store today and she said she has some similar so I guess they must be around somewhere. Wouldn't they be great for threading ribbon or elastic ?


  1. Your baby jacket is sweet Dorothy, and you crochet so quickly :))
    I haven't seen the wool needles but will look for them now that I know they are in Aus..

  2. Hi Dorothy

    Can't help with the needles -sorry.

    The yarn I bought for $2.50 per 100g at Spotlight was Moda Vera Noir, which is 4ply (sock yarn)75% wool, 25% polyamide (nylon). I'm planning a baby jumper (knit sideways) with some of it!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate hearing from you. xox
