Self Striping Sock Yarns – With A Difference

A while back I started dyeing up sock blanks and our colour block yarns were born.

Then I decided that I’d like to combine the colour shifts of the colour blocks with some definite stripes – like this:

Knitted over 69 stitches on 2mm needles the colours change every three rounds or so between black and a colour – and the colours transition over the length of the 50g ball.

There are 5 colours for the update tomorrow

Also in the update tomorrow is the latest of the yarns from the Granny Weatherwax club to go on general release – Widdle Poons.

The pattern will be available from Rachel Coopey from 1st February – and it’s a beauty.
