Posted:I've definitely struggled finding decent knee high socks to make sock poi in Australia - probably theres not enough market due to the more sensible climate we have here smile
Ive found a guy in Sydney at Glebe markets who has heaps of the stripey colour/black kind.
When i was at Confest over the weekend - I arranged with a couple of newbies i was teaching to buy some and post them as they couldnt find them either.

i wondered if anyone else was having the same issue and wanted some? i think they were about $6 per pair or something (plus a couple of dollars postage), and had most colours w/ black stripes.

ill try to pop down to the markets this saturday to check he's still got a stall set up.

Cheerio!

Posted:I find that the Sock Stands (in the middle of the walkways) in our local larger shopping centres - ie Westfield - have them, in a wide range also - they also have the ones with toes on them too, dont know if they are any good for poi tho.... I am pretty sure they had a deal like 3 pairs for $12 or something, will double check when I am there again, if anyone is interested, PM me.

Posted:The Sock Shop in Melbourne. Bought a few nice pairs there- bit pricey though. Due to budget constraints, I missed out on my bumblebee socks... did manage to find my rare Blue White Grey Black combo though.. ubblove

Posted:Toe-sock poi are definitely where it's at!

I got my socks 3 for $10 at a street festival in february (hence me now having matching poi, socks and fingerless gloves! ubblol). And I'm pretty sure they sell them at my university market.

If you want, I can sus out the market for you when uni goes back next week?

MiG's car got broken into last week and they stole one of his sock poi! (WHY would you steal one sock filled with rice?) So we had to get new one's for him weekend just gone, but they didn't have any black and white one's left, so he has to have red and white ones now... frown
