Primavera Socks knitted out of Footscray

July 16, 2008

The knitting has been continuing here at Yarn Workshop, and I am proud to show off my husband’s new socks. The yarn for these socks was kettle dyed by me using Yarn Workshop “Footscray” and Ashford acid dyes.

Project Details

Pattern Primavera Socks (free Ravelry download).

Yarn  Yarn Workshop Footscray hand dyed by me, using a kettle dye technique. I mixed up the colours of dye that I wanted to work with, and immersed the skeins slowly, while adding each colour, and waiting for the dye to exhaust before immersing more yarn and adding more colour.

Needles  Addi Turbos size 2.5 mm, also from the store.

Alterations Knitted “magic loop”.

August Vacation

The July sale is going very well, and keeping me so busy that I have decided to take a vacation from 8 August 2008 until 22 August 2008.  During this time, I will be answering emails, and will be taking orders, but will not be able to deliver any orders until my return. I am ordering new yarns for the Fall (including a supersoft angora laceweight and a merino yarn for baby clothes), and am expecting a new delivery of Bambaroo in three weeks. Unfortunately, I have faced significant cost increases in the new orders. I will be holding prices down until my vacation, but will be revising prices on my return. Please contact me for any wholesale orders.

Socks in Sydney

June 29, 2008

These socks were completed by Cyclomania (her Ebay identity), who also happens to be my sister.  They were knitted using Footscray and the Madder Ribbed Pattern (Ravelry link) from Knitting Vintage Socks; on our Addi knitting needles.  They were made for her 11 year old son, who is also the model.
