I’m thrilled to be introducing 2 new sock yarn options in the update which takes place tomorrow. I’ve had the idea for both of these yarns for a while, and my wonderful sock yarn supplier has made it possible by supplying skeins in 20g and 80g weights.
So, first up is Take Five
These skeins are 5 x 20g, one in a semi solid colour, the rest with a splash of the same semi solid plus a different one. The skeins in the picture are colourway Flower Power.
This is how the skeins knit up into a plain sock with the semi solid skein used for cuffs, heels and (when I get there) toes. I changes colours every 10 rows so there’s not much weaving in of ends.
There are two other colours available now, with more coming soon.
Take Five Copper Desert
Take Five Bluebell
The second new yarn is called Eighty/Twenty – 80g of the main patterned yarn and 20g of a co-ordinating semi solid for cuffs, heels and toes. I’ve started the range off with some of the same difference yarns (including a couple of new colour ways) as I know some knitters need their socks to match.
Eighty/Twenty Gothic Delight
Eighty/Twenty Lavender Field
Eighty/Twenty Pretty in Pink
Eighty/Twenty Toasty Toes
There are two new colours of the double knit merino slub.
Semi solid charcoal
Semi solid silver
And finally, the extra sock blanket club 2 skeins for January will be available.
The set of 11 mini skeins is made up of 9 skeins based on the January theme of ‘In the Pink’ plus the 2 sock club yarns.
The update will take place tomorrow morning – happy shopping.
