Because Sock Yarn
The London Craft Guide will be launched at Unravel on 19th-21st February. The book is currently available for preorders at www.yarninthecity.com
Sock yarn isn’t really stash. It’s only one skein. It’s less than £20. And it doesn’t take up a lot of room in your bag. There’s no worry about dye lots or yardage or gauge. It’s just Sock Yarn. You have to buy it. It’s a souvenir: a colourway evocative of the city. A colourway you’ve never seen before. It matches your coat. And it’s only one skein.
So how about using that one-of-a-kind beautiful souvenir skein for something that’s as fun to knit as socks, but isn’t for your feet? Use it for things you can show off.
