G'day to you -- here in Port Adelaide I'm in the midst of preparing for Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show and for my annual festival trip overseas, so please excuse if the market stall is a bit messy!
Thank you to everyone who came by on the holiday weekend. The wool stocks are greatly depleted, but have no fear, more is on the way from the lovely mill peoples.
Special hello to Colleen, who came by to show me the shawl she made out of some McLaren Vale CSW. It is AMAZING -- her lace is just gorgeous. I wanted to grab it and keep it, but I reckon she's not letting that one go!
And hello to my fave mother/daughter team -- the spinner in the family is going fab on a new spindle -- youngest spinning customer award to her! *waving* I really really wanted the purple/blue with sparkle/glitz handspun she was making. Very pretty.
Look out for some awesome crocheted bags from Raphael around town -- he's making some outrageous bags for his mum and sis. Lucky women! And he went away with almost all the Puna and dark plummy purple aloo. There is a bit more left, so let me know if you'd like to play with some. Puna is my light purpley orchidish colour.
This week: I'll be gearing up for festivals, but still bringing new yarns to the Port Markets. If you have a special request, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate them in the dye runs this week.
CU at the markets, M
