Soy! and more Soy

Hope you are looking forward to spring — a great time to store away your wooly stuff and think about trying something new. Plenty of new soy dk colours available — it’s great for summer garments, beach bags, and babies/kidswear — machine washable, absorbent like cotton, but doesn’t pill.

Wool storage tip: try the dry patchouli leaves available at the Honey Shoppe in the Adelaide Central Market. They’re the leaves from Ache, Indonesia and they’re great for keeping the bugs outta your stash. Sure, your stash will smell like hippies, but that’s a good thing right? This shop is also a good source of lavender, if you just can’t stand the patchouli.

On deck for this Sunday: Kate (Kaviare on Ravelry) will be in charge of the shop this weekend. What to look for this week? Check out guest spinner, Vellan’s, handspun yarn. There’s a special lot of skeins to be scooped up by an intrepid customer. Lovely stuff!

The palm wood Kollage square needles continue to be popular. Plenty of them still available (see the sidebar for more details).

Happy Knitting! Melissa
