Head over Heels
We're 'Head over Heels' in love with this new range of yarn!
Oh my word we're head over heels in love with Head over Heels sock yarn.
Our choice of wool for December is the new 4ply sock yarn from Stylecraft launched in September. The most difficult decision was choosing a colour. The 5 shades available are simply a delight, available as self striping and gradient, named after mountains Fiji, Eiger, Everest, kilimanjaro , Matterhorn and Olympus, its hard to choose one. With its 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon content it makes a great sock yarn combination.
Depending on your gauge recommended needle size is 2mm-3.25. I will say my gauge is pretty standard and I always use a 2.50 but I think this is a slightly thinner 4 ply than some of the other commercial socks yarns Iv'e knit with. I decided to use a 2.25mm and cast on 68sts instead of 66sts to give the finished knit a more dense like feel and I'm thrilled with the pair I'm knitting for Mr SuffolkSocks who has no problem wearing pink stripes at all (I only wish Id knit them in my size). Included with each purchase whilst stock lasts is a free patterns, hat shawl and socks. Not only is it great for knitting its great to crochet too.The shade knit in the image is Matterhorn
