Queen's Birthday Specials and Kaz's First Sock!

Queen's Birthday Long Weekend: Stranded In Oz will be trading both Sunday and Monday for the long weekend. To Port Shoppers, please peruse the online shop -- and if you wish, order ahead. There are of course yarns that haven't been loaded online yet, but if you see something you want to buy, do so now to avoid disappointment. Choose Store Pickup for your shipping option.

And, to celebrate the Queen's birthday, I'm running a special on the luxury side. What else? Cashmere.

This weekend, I will have the Cashmere DK and Cashmere/Wool DK on sale -- 90gms of hand-painted luxury yarns -- each pack will have 3 hanks of yarn and a pattern for gloves. $19.99 for cashmere/wool and $24.99 for the pure cashmere. You won't find these yarns any where else -- they are luxury spun yarns done for a European brand. I've got the lot here and am continuing to dye it until it's gone.

I am endeavouring also to top up the Lone Hank Hamper and the bargain yarns -- for fun scarves and other nice things to knit this winter.

Something to share from Kaz:

Kaz has been majorly bitten by the spinning and knitting bug -- here's her first sock! Spun in SIOz merino/lyo (that's the fibre I'm featuring this month for the club) -- she spun hers from the Queen Anne's Garden mix.  I was blown away by her socks! Thank you to Kaz for giving me permission to post these piccies.
