Happy New Year and Thank You

Happy Holidays to everyone. And thank you to all the happy shoppers who braved the pre-xmas crowds to come down to the market last Sunday. We all appreciate your support of local artists.

The new stock of Tofutsies is IN and each ball is a beaut. Feel free to grab the basket and have a good look at each. You will have a hard time deciding which one you want. If you have colour preferences, please email me and I will set yours aside for this Sunday. The colour links are listed to the right -- have a look at the colourways link. :-)

If you haven't picked a summer knitting project, have a look at the soy yarns. I am bringing the entire lot down. Unfortunately, the online pics don't do them justice.

Happy Summer Knitting.

Thank you and happy holidays

Thank you to the people who came by the stall yesterday. It was nice to see you all on a beautiful day. Perfect weather for hanging out at the market and eating wood-oven pizza! Yup, we have the best pizza maker in Adelaide at the Art Market every Sunday. Deelish.

The banana silk is almost all gone and I will endeavour to acquire more as soon as the holiday season calms down. The soy yarn is still going strong. If you have colour preferences, email me at strandedinoz at gmail dot com and I will let you know e.t.a on arrival if I don't have it in stock. See yarn info links for details.

The new stock of Tofutsies is expected this week - I've ordered a diff. lot of colours this time for variety and fun, so click on the Tofutsie yarn link and check out colour sample 1.  As per previous, if you have a specific colour preference, I am happy to place a special order. 

I'm working on more recycled artwear vests -- The one below, Fairy Floss, is lighter-than-air pink mohair with green and pink trim. Size small. 

Have a great week. Knit something -- it helps relieve holiday season stress.

Holiday Knitting


Gearing up for the holiday knitting season and having fun with banana silk. It's funky fuzzy handspun like recycled sari silk, but doesn't shed. Can't beat that.

Apologies to Tofutsies fans - some plain colours left, but more shortly. If you have colour preferences, please let me know asap before my order goes in.

Just uploaded some photos from the camera that seemed to be stuck in there and voila... a gorgeous shot of Baby Beantoes. I'm really happy with this picture and hope it inspires you to make some too. Pattern available free with a Tofutsies purchase, or for purchase separately.

For those who wish to purchase baby or toddler socks, please email me at strandedinoz (at) gmail (dot) com.
