Teal and Black Sox -- Tofutsies for Adelaide

Continuing on the road to the footy season, there are a few precious balls of powah sock yarn left, though at this rate, it won't last the month. Thank you to the customers who came by for their bi-monthly Tofutsies purchases. One customer has already declared it perfect for match day gloves. Ooooh! With matching socks, how good are they going to be?

Enough teasing -- here's the Feb Tofutsies sock -- Hugs and Kisses! 

Banana silk: more colours for the upcoming weekend. So many possibilities with this fibre. Customers have shared their ideas:

Shred it, work it into couchwork designs, knit, crochet, spin it into other fibres. Felt it into something. Lots of ideas shared over the market table this weekend.

Don't be cold this winter!

It's not too early to think about your major projects this winter. I've been previewing The Emerald City Shawl with hand-dyed yarn from Knitting By Zen.

I will be featuring 2 custom colourways from Emma's all-Aussie hand-dyed yarns in March.

Artwear: Soy Vests are coming for this Sunday -- sold out previous versions. Practical, versatile garments for the Australian climate.

My ball of Port Adelaide Tofutsies is now ear-marked for my non-knitting friend, who saw it and didn't want to give it back. She doesn't knit or crochet - has no means to turn the yarn into anything wearable - and yet I had to prise if from her fingers. At least that's her birthday solved.

The Emerald City shawl was lovely. It looked like it would make a good Christmas gift, too.
