Crazy Colourways, Mini Skeins, a Free Vanilla Sock Pattern and a KAL!


We've been having a ton of fun this week dyeing up a whole heap of crazy new colourways.  These new colours were designed with socks in mind,but feel free to use them as you wish.  There are 19 fun colourways to choose from, all of which will knit up in random stripey socks like those pictured below, which were knit using 'Coconut Ice'.



We love the look of highly variegated yarn knit up using a basic sock pattern, which is why we decided to share our 'Vanilla' sock pattern.  'Vanilla' is our go to basic sock pattern that is perfect for beginner knitters or those who would like to try knitting socks for the first time.  This pattern is free and available to download on Ravelry - hope you enjoy!



Also this week, we are super excited to release our first batch of Mini Skeins!  These delightful baby Top Draw Sock skeins weigh 20g and are perfect for adding a pop of colour in all projects!  Great for sock blankets, adding contrast heels and toes for socks, stripes for shawls, baby socks and many other things. Each skein costs $10 and there are a stack of colours to choose from.

Our new crazy colourways, minis and a selection of speckled yarns will be available on Friday 10th June at 9am AEST, come on over to the shop and check them out! 



Crazy Colourway KAL

We thought that this week would be the perfect time to announce our next KAL!  Crazy Colourways are SO MUCH FUN to knit with and we would love to see what you knit with yours!  So, grab a skein of variegated Skein yarn (including speckled colourways) and cast on!  You can choose any pattern you like, whether it be a shawl, socks, hat, gloves - feel free to add in contrasting semi-solid stripes (check out our new minis!).  The KAL will be held over on our Ravelry Group, so check out the KAL thread for more info.

Have a fabulous weekend!
