If you can wait about 5 years, I'll be there! My husband is a Kiwi and we are planning to move from London to Dunedin or Christchurch in the next 5 years or so. Me? I'm an American who goes where the wind blows me and it looks as though we'll be going back to my DH's home at some point soon. In the interim, you might try http://www.southseasknitting.com/
to get in touch with Mel Clarke who wrote the book "Knit 2 Together" with Tracey Ullman. She recently moved back to Auckland and will be launching an internet biz; at this stage, the website is a work in progress but from what she tells me, she's planning on doing a lot more than just selling wool online.
So where are you in the South?
