Friday Highlights

This week we are highlighting yet another new design, this time from the lovely Molly of A Homespun House who designed these super cute socks called Dale.  Knit using a traditional Fair Isle design (that was inspired by a similar design used by Molly's grandmother and great grandmother) the Dale socks are knit cuff-down and use Skein Top Draw Sock, in the colourways Barley and Quill.

And if the Dale socks weren't cute enough, Molly has also designed a pair of socks for babies and toddlers called Suesie Dale♥.  These are also inspired from a pattern knit by Molly's grandmother and great grandmother and feature a very handy i-cord tie to stop the socks slipping off little feet.  Knit from Skein Top Draw Sock, Molly used Geisha and Quill with the contrast colour being Barley.  So sweet!

You can check out more of Molly's designs over on Ravelry, she has a wonderful website called A Homespun House that sells project bags, patterns and more, plus she also has a wonderful video podcast that I highly recommend!


Thanks to Molly we have a Dale sock kit to giveaway which includes the pattern plus one skein of Top Draw Sock and a mini skein in a contrasting colour, your choice of colourways!  To enter please leave a comment and tell me what two colourways you would chose to make the Dale socks.  One entry per person please, winner will be announced Friday 27th March.

Have a wonderful weekend!
