Winter cometh & out come the knitting needles….

Who knew that there was such a cool wool shop in Cape Town? There it sits in a 50’s style house in Oranjezicht & it’s the only place – called Orion Wool & Crafts – that I know of where you can get your ‘scarf ingredients’ as I call them lovely balls o’ wool etc. In all colours & many different types, this is yourone stop shop for what your knitting needles & crochet hooks want so badly. Roger & Margarida (I stand to correction on the spelling of her name) are the purveyors of fine product & for people like me who can’t seem to find a copy of Knitting for Dummies, they are all too willing to help explain ‘knit one, pearl 1’. Fabulous is all I can say. I make multi trips there as soon as I feel winter is too close for comfort & that my neck needs it’s comforter. Go see for yourself. I met a gal there today who told me about a knitting circle called ‘Stitch & Bitch’. Join? Must! Clicketyclack ladies, clicketyclack *  0214239782, open Tuesday to Saturday – call them for info re the trading hours  ~www.orionwool.co.za
Love the design of this house- Orion is on the basement level, through the little gate & down the little steps, into the little shop…. off you go…

Step inside wool lovers…

Roger is there to answer your questions, as basic as they are (trust me)…

  Until next time,
