Announcing suzy hausfrau Christmas Classes

So excited to be offering TWO exciting classes in November during the week of 21-25 November in my pop-up SHOP at the very new Lonsdale Street Traders, Braddon ACT.

The first class on Saturday 24th November will be learning how to make Christmas Baubles from  Julekuler the book by Norwegian knitwear designers, Arne & Carlos.

The cost of this 3 hour class is $45 plus materials and more information can be found on the website here.

Not to forget the crochet folk, Lucy from Attic24 has given me the thumbs up to teach a class of her gorgeous Christmas Snowflake pattern. This will be held on Sunday 25th November (one month out from Chrismas...eep!)

The cost of this 2hour class is $30 plus materials and more information can be found on the website here.

Both of these classes will be limited to 6 participants each, with light refreshments provided.

You can keep up with the latest news on classes and the pop-up shop via my newsletter, FACEBOOK page or follow me on twitter.

Have a great day,
suzy xoxo

My creative space (a diversion)

I suspect that I like most of you, wake up in the morning compiling a mental list of what I have to do each day. Like, who I have to contact, bills I have to pay, school notes that are due, those sort of thrilling life tasks, oh and fit in a bit of knitting here and there.

High up on my list today was to pick up the vouchers for the two school fetes/events that I am sponsoring this weekend. Turner Primary are having their annual fete and BlueGum are hosting an art sale. I was honoured to be asked to help out, so I've donated some yarn and suzy cash! So if you are in the area...drop on in.

There was various other, and much less exciting tasks to do...then I got the WORD, and my to-do list is so forgotten. I've been searching for a suitable space for pop-up shops and classes for AGES. A few weeks ago I heard about an exciting new concept in Canberra, Lonsdale Street Traders. I immediately checked it out, and was smitten. Lucky for me CraftACT has a space there which they have sub-let out to yours truly for a whole WEEK starring from 20th November!   A lot more details to come, but I will be teaching Christmas knitting and crochet classes, and running a pop-up shop.  I couldn't be more excited.

But now my creative space has been diverted from finishing the last measly three and a half rows of my In-Threes so I could share it on MCS today. I'm too busy planning and dreaming, actually mostly doing happy dances and dreaming.  Yep, you heard that right - too excited to knit three and a half rows!

Happy, happy days,
suzy xoxo

PS Much more productive creative folk can be found over here sharing today.

The word on MadTosh

We are all going a bit Mad here today. I've just had the word overnight that the next order of MadTosh will ship very shortly. It's a large order of Tosh Merino light - 20 glorious colours across the spectrum!

My advice, start planning your projects now...because this stuff sells out super-fast!

Happy, happy days,
suzy xoxo

PS: No yarn was harmed in the making of this blog post...Miss Sophie has yarn from my personal stash ;)

Orange inspiration

Orange poppy at Floriade Canberra, ACT 2012.

I'm a late convert to orange...really I mean what took me so long?
It's stunning, and very worthy of the top-secret project that I'm working on.
Hands up orange fans!

Have a great day,
suzy xoxo

Get on it

Super-quick post this morning to remind you about TWO exciting suzy hausfrau happenings that you need to get on.

Do you want to win some of the sublime Swans Island organic yarn? Then head on over to the equally sublime blog Foxs Lane for a chance. Gorgeous Kate is hosting it and she is smitten with the yarn, which I can totally understand, biased though I know I am!

....and don't forget if you 'like me', yes 'really like me' over on Facebook there is a special offer of suzy cash available until THIS Friday.

So get on it!
