I like the idea of machine washable yarns as it's easier for busy mum's. I love my knitting and yarn and any books that are to do with this subject, it's a bit of an addiction really. I also have another shop on Etsy, which is called KookaburraYarns and it is a shop with yarns and patterns which I have designed. I also enjoy going out with friends for coffee and I enjoy spending time with family.
