Yarn Hot Shots and Bendigo Show

Tofutsies Heaven:

I’ve been advised I’m too slack at posting yarn photos, so here are some for the week.

Above is an enticing display of Tofutsies — go on, you know you want some!

A semi-decent shot of the green/blue/browns in 5ply wool. Love this colourway. The blue/greens, blue/reds and gelati-coloured wools are all NZ dk unplied hand-paints.

The wool from the dyeworks is drying, with another lot ready for processing. Look out for the wild wool this week — I did serendipity/dyer’s choice skeins this week. Some coloursways will not be repeatable in their present state, so get in early if there’s something that strikes your fancy.

Included in this week’s selection: a rare hank of mini-boucle mohair (at present, I am unable to order more), a very cool wool boucle lace yarn, some premium quality 80/20 sock wool from my fav. small Pennsylvania mill, and some dyer’s choice hemp and wool.

The rest of the latest shipment of Nepalese lace yarn has been dyed in some outrageous colourways. My fave: light shades of teal, green, brown, and reddish purple.

Below is a shot of the winter soy colours — outrageous red is sold out, but more is on the way.

For those of you headed to Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show, please come by and say hello. SIOz will be in Osborne #33.

In addition to the pile of yarn hanks, I will also have Kollage Square Needles — the first lot arrived last week. These needles are great for people who have arthritis or pain in their hands from knitting.

I will be posting pre-show information next week on the webpage.

Below right, you’ll find Judith Avery’s version of the Hailstone Jumper from Yarn Magazine. I dyed semi-solids in natural 8ply for the project. Didn’t she make the cutest jumper for her grandson, Angus? And isn’t Angus a great name for a grandson?
