Rock Your Socks

July 05, 2017

Having sock projects on hand are great on so many levels. They are easy to knit when socalising or chilling in front of the TV, are portable and can be taken anywhere, are super quick to knit, make excellent and useful gifts, and they fit MUCH better than store-bought socks.  There are so many reasons to have a pair of socks on your needles. 

This week, we have been focusing on sock yarns that are specifically dyed for the ultimate pair of rockin' socks.  We have a choice of two yarns: our Everyday Sock which is a mix of 80% extra-fine merino and 20% Nylon, as well as the luxurious MCN Sock which is a blend of Merino, Cashmere and Nylon.  Our colourways are a mix of semi-solid (great for colour-block socks!), variegated (like the picture above which shows Scribbly Gum on MCN Sock), speckled and crazy colours that knit up into micro-stripes like Rain and Bloom shown below.

 

 

 

 

In addition to sock yarns, we will also be adding some Merino Silk Sport to the shop.  If you're looking for shawl or sweater yarn with drape, this is for you!  Merino Silk Sport is a mix of 50% Merino and 50% Silk; unlike other silk yarns, this one is soft and easy to knit and easy on the hands.  We have quite a few colours, including the ones below which are Envy and Autumn Plum.

 

 

Our update will be Friday 7th July at 9am AEST!  Don't forget to head over to the shop to check it out.

Have a wonderful week!
