Last week I heard there was a new place in the north western suburbs where I could buy Bendigo woollen mills yarn. Much closer to me than Bendigo and in a suburb adjacent to one that I travel to almost weekly. Saturday when J's mum suggested an outing, I suggested we check it out.
It turns out the shop only opened on Thursday of last week, so they are still getting things sorted but it is looking very good already.
Unwind Craft Cafe sells a selection of yarn, fabrics, tools and handmade items as well as coffee and cakes.
The decor is retro and they have some amazing pastel coloured cabinets similar to ones I remember neighbours having when I was growing up. The cafe tables and chairs are straight out of grandma's house, speckled laminate and cushy vinyl, our table was decorated with a suitably 1970's cloth.
The coffee and poffertjes were delicious (and not from the 70's).

Drinking coffee and having a little snack is the perfect way to contemplate new yarn. I had plenty of time to look at all the colours as they are right there in the flesh.
I was restrained and only brought 1 ball home, but I know where I can get other colours, which I cast on last night while waiting for the fireworks to start.
Hope your Monday includes time to create.
