Handknitters Guild SA for Sat, May 26th, 2012

Glinda, The Good Wool in Sister Midnight

We're all set for the Handknitters Guild SA Exhibition. Stranded In Oz will be there on Saturday (tomorrow) with new lots of wool -- the heavier DK especially -- and new sock yarn lots -- in time for winter knitting.

I look forward to this Bi-Annual Event and look forward to catching up with old and making new ones.

Remember: bring in an FO in Stranded In Oz yarn and get a 10% discount on your purchases on the day.

Exhibition: Unley Citizens Centre, Arthur Street, Unley SA
Parking across the road at the shopping centre!

CU there!

Next Outing for Stranded In Oz and a Contest

Hello and wow -- the month of April just flew by. It's nothing but work from here to way into Spring for me at SIOz central.

For a start, the next public outing (besides the normal Sunday Port Adelaide Fishermen's Wharf Markets) is:

Saturday, May 26th at the Handknitters Guild SA Bi-Annual Exhibition, at the Unley Citizen's Centre, Arthur Street, Unley, just opposite the shopping mall (plenty of parking in there).

I'll be there with new lots of sock yarn, lace yarns, and a variety of fibres and types to inspire Winter knitting and beyond.

For the best updates, join the Stranded In Oz group on Ravelry to keep up with the latest details. The more the merrier!

For May and June, check out the sneak peek at the next Stranded In Oz Contest Prize. Details will be posted on Ravelry and the shop blog in a few days.
