Look what I bought myself!
A bit extravagant, I know... but it's been on my wish list for such a long time now.
So when my money came through from the Alice Springs Beanie Festival...
(yes those beanies sold - yay)
I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to buy.
I haven't had the chance to play with it yet. The threads and fabric you see there came with the machine. But I'm desperate to get going with it. There's just one small problem.
I don't usually order much online. But with this overlocker, I knew exactly what I wanted - so I took the plunge and ordered from the US.
I thought I was mighty clever.
Ordering it all by myself.
Didn't even mention it to Mr Goldfish until it arrived.
When he saw the package had come from overseas, he grunted... and asked... "What about the plug?"
Bugger. Bugger. Bugger. Bugger. Bugger.
Didn't even think of that!
See... Our electrical sockets here in Australia look like this:
(Not everyone's are quite this filthy of course!)
And the plug on that overlocker is NEVER going to fit in that socket!
So I'm off to buy an adaptor.
And read the Instruction Manual!
And what will I be making with my new toy???
Well, I've been totally inspired by the designs of Katwise over on Etsy... If you haven't already seen her work, you need to go and have a browse right now... Amazing rejuvenations of old knitwear.
