Sock yarn!

Yes, I’m very pleased to let you know that I now have a range
of hand-dyed sock yarn. And not any kind of sock yarn, but
superwash 100% BFL – the yarn that sock-knitters all over the
world are raving about! It’s a lustrous yarn with a high twist
that makes it durable for socks. But it’s soft to the skin so it’s
just as suitable for baby clothes, shawls, wrist-warmers
or any other 4ply knitting.

Happy-go-knitty BFL comes in semi-solid and self-striping.
Yes, that’s right – self-striping! So now you can knit stripy
socks without the hazzle of all the ends. Yay!
The self-striping comes in two versions –
4 colours fine stripes or 2 colours wide stripes.

The yarn will be available shortly in my shop at
Oh, For Crafts Sake. But you can come and see and touch
tomorrow at Devonport Craft Market.
