Hello from Port Adelaide. This weekend we’re starting to transition from Summer to Autumn/Winter, so to celebrate our long weekend and two days at the Port Markets, I’ll be clearing out the end of season yarns – at fab sale prices – and getting the market stall ready for what’s in store for the cooler weather.

I’ll be there, with yarn, needles, and fibre Sunday and Monday, 9am to 5pm.

Sale pricing includes the latest lots of Soysilk® Lace — in some fabulous new shades! It’s one of my best-loved yarns. And knits up into gorgeous shawls and scarves. Fabulous for weavers, crocheters and knitters alike.

Kid's Birthday Party Dec Yarn

Kid’s Birthday Party Dec Yarn

Apologies for not updating blog regularly — I am on Ravelry and Facebook and between those two, painting, designing, and doing all the orders, a blog just gets… lost in the mix.

For the summer in Oz, I will be at the Port Markets, Sundays and Monday public holidays 9am to 5pm. As it isn’t show season, I am here in Adelaide, painting and working on large projects, some of which I can share with you in 2015.

Biggest News: Subscriptions for knitting and spinning clubs are now open for 2015.  See the online shop for the details. Should you have questions regarding clubs, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Note: Adelaide customers who wish to pick up their subscriptions at the market, please contact me for rates minus shipping and handling.

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and support for 2015. See you online and at the Port Markets, Melissa

March and Stranded In Oz

First, a big thank you to the people at SWTC, Inc. and Yarnzone. I had a wonderful time with the beautiful Jonette and the incredibly SWTC yarn and customers. A big thank you for their support of my fibre art and humble huge thanks to the customers who bought SIOz from Yarnzone!

Here are some pictures of what they saw when they visited us!

Can’t wait to see what gets knitted from all the yarn! Especially excited to see what the new Party Wraps look like knitted in SWTC and SIOz yarns.

The Party Wrap is in this new issue of YARN Magazine. Stay tuned for information on the yarns used to create your own Party Wrap!

February and Stranded In Oz

Hello and Welcome. February for me means travel. I’m in America for Stitches West. You’ll find me at the SWTC booth! Come by and say hi!

If you are in Oz, the Port Markets SIOz Sunday Shop is open 9-5 every Sunday. While I am out and about, Richard or Eric is there to mind the yarn and fibre. If you have any detailed questions, please don’t hesitate to email me – melissa@strandedinoz.com. I generally answer within 24 hrs of your inquiry, though when I am on the road, it can sometimes take a wee bit longer.

Keep a lookout for my new patterns in the next Issue of YARN Magazine, March 2014. There’s surely something to inspire you! No sneak peeks yet!

The first club packs have gone out for February — they included 100gm of Hand-Painted Jezebel, knitting needles, stitch markers, tea, and a pattern to make Elves and Fairies. If you didn’t subscribe for the year or part one, be sure to make a note in your calendar to join for Part II. The best way to get a sense of what the clubs are like is to join the Stranded In Oz Group on Ravelry and join the conversation.
