The sock knitting trend is continuing through the summer because knitters appreciate that socks are so portable. They are the perfect project to slip into your purse or beach bag and travel wherever you go. Now that airlines are once again allowing knitting on flights, socks can even enjoy the get away in your carry-on luggage.
We have brought in some new sock yarn to allow you to indulge in more sock knitting during your summer break. This is a beautiful hand dyed washable merino yarn from Dye-Version. It contains just the right amount of nylon (25%) to add durability and keep the socks looking great for a long time. Dye-Version is a local company based in Mississauga, Ontario. It is owned and operated by two very talented sisters. They are presently working on dying more colourways that will be arriving soon.
Make sure that you always have sock yarn and needles packed for your travels. It helps make the inevitable waiting time that accompanies most trips seem like a great part of the holiday.Karen
