Got the Blues. And Greens

By request, the greens and blues arrived — a variety of types of yarns including sock, 8ply, and laceweight wools. The sock yarn is almost sold out. The front hank is the more saturated version, the hank behind is a subtler, paler paint. There are multiple blues and greens in this yarn.

The 8ply version includes an olive green I couldn’t resist mixing.

Due to the wet weather, the drying process is taking its time, so your patience is appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who came by for the first day of the Great Stash Sale — I’ll be loading up each week with interesting and lovely yarns — most are between 50 and 70 percent off the regular retail price. And a big thank you the diehard addicts who came early. They scored some gorgeous hanks of one of my fave handpainters — Cheryl Potter. There’s a wee bit left of the outrageous hand-paints, a nice selection of first quality sock yarn (don’t miss out on those) and of course, as always, SIOz hand-painted wools.

On the Stash table for this Sunday — a ridiculous amount of Jo Sharp mohair has got to go! So bring your mags and books and pick up a bargain. This yarn is still in the factory bags and is light enough to work with as the weather gets warmer — like a cloud!

There’s also a bin of project packs — sock packs, hat/scarf packs… shawl packs at great prices.

From the dyetable this week: hemp and wool yarn in some kickin’ colourways, including fave, Think Global and more solids are on the whiteboard dyelist. If you can’t get to the Port market on Sundays, Luci at Think Global (Hove) stocks SIOz hemp and wool and banana silk.

AUGUST TOFUTSIES @SOCK CLUB IS IN: It’s Toe Jam, by Deby Lake and the colourway is a slate, silver, and light blue. Bee-ute! Email or ring to arrange your delivery.
