My grandmother is going to Austrailia for a month or thereabouts (and I SO want to go with her - but I don't want to leave Todd and 2 kids alone in the house for a month - that would be enough to make me mental upon my return!)
My question is - what is a good "made in Austrailia yarn" for sweaters, scarves, etc. She has asked for a shopping list - so I need details if you can provide them (name of yarn, weight, approx. # of skiens to make a sweater). We are thinking we (Mom & I) will give her a detailed shopping list and have her bring stuff home.
Is there any "made in Austrailia" fabric that I need to ask for?
She is 80 some years old, tires me out when we go shopping, and they are going on a tour of a yarn factory somewhere........
If I was to ask for an Austrailian souvenier, what is a good item to ask for (if I don't ask for specifics, I'll end up with a tshirt or baseball hat for myself)? I'm not sure which parts of Austrailia she is touring ..... (Sydney and New Zealand are two cities that were mentioned). I'll try and find out some more details here shortly!
Thanks a million for all your help!
