The problem I'm facing is the availability of yarn here on Waiheke. The tiny craft store sticks the knife in everything and the cheapest yarn I found was around $15! Insane! My birthday is on the 21st, so maybe I'll use that to justify purchasing a few things from PremierYarns.com and shipping them over to New Zealand. It might be a bit pricey, but even with the shipping costs, it still won't be anywhere near purchasing yarn from the tiny craft store here.
