Hi, all...got a couple of questions, if you can help. Smiley I am in the middle of a swap, and my partner is a knitter, which I know very little about, being in the beginning stages only. I want to get her some yarn, that she will love, that is hard for her to get (she's in England, I'm over here in Australia), and I really don't know what. I am looking at a budget of $40, and would like to get enough for at least a small project. Anyone have any ideas?? I've had a peek on google, and Etsy, but frankly, I am totally lost, and ANY help will be appreciated!!  Grin

The Knittery is an Australian company, they dye their yarn, very nice and unique.
Address is:


Melbourne, Australia

Ooh, thanks, you guys, they look great!!

Now, can anyone tell me, is one 100g skein enough to send (they all say one is enough for a pair of socks), or should I get at least two, to not limit her hugely??
