Having just returned from our annual buying trip to Europe, I'm feeling sooooo excited about the beautiful fabrics we've purchased from Italy and, for the first time, Germany . They're all bundled up and en route to Sydney as I type this.
I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. The only thing holding me back is a rather delayed reaction to some hardcore jetlag and a two week stint of jury duty. Not a winning combination, I can assure you...
And so, foggy head and all, I'm marking my return with a beautiful giveaway. I picked this one up in Greece and, unlike last year, I actually remembered to bring it home with me (long story).

Whilst in Athens, I made a point of visiting Mallia Sakalak, a knitters paradise situated just minutes from the much troubled Syntagma Square (but we witnessed no sign of trouble only coffee/ouzo drinking and the sound of dice rolling on backgammon boards). I've been following the store after coming across it on Flickr. On my visit I was very lucky to meet owner Joseph, and discovered his store has been in the family for three generations.
Although this blog is predominantly a sewing blog, I know that quite a few of our readers are also knitters. So when I spotted beautiful 100% linen LANG YARN (Imported from Italy) in the store, I couldn't resist!
For this giveaway I have 10 balls of Shade 0070 - Steel Grey, plus ...
...Joseph very kindly threw in an issue of FATTO A MANO 182 - SUMMER COLLECTION, which includes 70 stylish and up-to-date knitting patterns!
Feel free to leave a comment if you would like to receive the yarn and book. All readers welcome, local and international, by end of day Wednesday 3rd August AEST. Note: Readers without a Google account please leave me your email address.
