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
Black and Orange to Yellow
Black and Red to Blue
Black and Shades of Violet
Black and Shades of Pink
There are also 6 new colour block yarns
Violet to Magenta
Turquoise to Green
Red to Blue
Orange to Yellow
Shades of Violet
Shades of Pink
These yarns will all be listed in the colour block section of the shop.
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.
