the yarn that was and will be…

Hello and thank you to the amazing knitters who came by to say hello, fondle, and sometimes purchase, a hank or ball or two of SIOz yarn to knit this summer. The dust is slowly settling here at SIOz Central. Thank you also to Jonelle and Jonette at SWTC for making the SWTC selection what […]

Thank you and New Year Knitting

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 […]

Stash Sale Trois

Parting with the Hand-Dyed Yarn

It was a fab Sunday, though I’m sure most of the shoppers were down in Rundle Street waiting for the Tour Down Under. Not to worry, as intrepid knitters found their way to my market tables and did some damage to the 2ply yarns. I sometimes hate to part with a particular hank — and […]

Artwear Out There

Thank you to everyone who came by on Sunday. It was lovely to meet you all, especially the out-of-towners. Look out for SIO artwear vests in Brisbane, as that is the place where people are wearing ‘em. I had to say goodbye to Fairy Floss (see prev. post) — this was hard to do, as […]
