I received my Bendigo catalogue last week. So tempting. Now to invent a reason to buy something when I truly don't need anything.

I have that catalogue too !

But Pat, how on earth do you get those hanks into something easier to handle (like a ball) - my wool hank is now a rather scary mess and TOH refuses to be a sitting wool holder!

Pointers most appreciated :)

Hello Lee,
2 chairs are a good help, but I can let you borrow my reel... :))
