Thank you to everyone who came by the market on Sunday. It was a lovely day at the Port — plenty of people taking advantage of the dolphin boat tours and the Maritime Museum.
There will be some new silk shawls and scarves for the weekend as the dye lots come through (see previous recent posts).
Summer Sock Knitting:
Tofutsies on special until the end of the month of Jan: $20.00AU per ball. There are lots of new colours, including the Harvest Sock and Bees Knees (blues/grays). If you haven’t tried Tofutsies, don’t take my word for it – this yarn is the perfect sock yarn for Australian weather — a touch of soy, cotton, wool, and Chitin — it’s cool in summer and just warm enough for our winters. Most of the new colourways are semi-solids and variegateds, so not so many self-stripers, which makes it ideal for baby’s clothes and light-weight garments.
New Stock of yarns, including tree pulp (a sustainable viscose) and linen blend, some lovely alpaca/silk laceweight, and assorted other gorgous, lighter-weight yarns that will head to the dyeworks upon arrival.
Colours slated for this week:
Banana Palm Silks in blues, reds, copper, and the popular Machine Gun (kinda charcoal, metalic tinge, v. punk).
New Lace Merino and Pure Alpaca
I’ll be updating with photos later in the week.
CU at the Port.
