Want to knit socks but prefer them to be solid coloured?
Me too! That’s why I’m bringing the Magpielly Solid Coloured Sock Club to your door!
Brown Sheep Wildfoote Luxury Sock yarn is a 4 plied sock yarn that is spun in 75% washable wool and 25% nylon. It is soft but hard-wearing, and knits to 7/8 stitches per inch (28-32 stitches to 10cm). I’m wearing a pair knit from this yarn right now – so soft and lovely I finished them back in October, and they’re holding up well. I’m looking forward to making more! I rarely have time to knit for myself, but I feel happily duty-bound to knit the other designers socks along with everyone else!
The club will run for four months (June-September), and each month you will get x2 50g skeins of sock yarn, and a sock pattern. The designers are Rachel Coopey (Coop Knits), Elly Doyle (Meee!), Ruth Garcia-Alcantud (Rock & Purl) and Sam Parfitt (Dark Nights Yarn Dreams).
The designs will cover a mix of techniques including twisted stitches, lace, cables and textured stitches, as well as different styles of toes and heels. Two will be knit from the top-down, two from the toe up. All patterns will be sized to fit feet with a cirumference of 7 (8, 9)”/18 (20.5, 23)cm.
You can see all 19 available colours at the bottom of this page. I’m happy to take specific colour requests, or you can be completely surprised, or partially surpised, e.g. ask for ‘manly colours’ or ‘no brights’ or… of course, bear in mind that phrases like that are open to my interpretation, which may be different to yours!
Sign-ups close on the 31st of May, and the first installment will be going out in the third week of June. I’m happy to ship to Europe and the rest of the world, and there is also the option to pay in two installments – see the details on the club page. Sign-up today!
