Just a quick post to announce the Tradewind Knitwear Designs Summer Sale that runs from August 24th through the 30th. This is a great opportunity to stock up on fiber: Celestial Merino in Mottled Solids, Shelridge Farm – Soft Touch Ultra and Joy. For details about the Soft Touch Ultra and to see the colour card click here. Check out our free pattern, the Felted Double-Knit MP3 Bag, which works wonderfully in the Joy.
A sample of our Sumptuous Merino Solids featured in the Sale:
Socks are a small fun project, a mini engineering miracle, an art form in themselves. They are ideal portable knitting and are always a very welcome gift (if you can bear to part with them). We’re offering a new, free .pdf – How to Knit a Perfect Sock. For those working their ﬁrst sock, references to my Sock Techniques 1 DVD are given throughout the pattern.
For a fancier looking sock without changing colours try the self-patterning Opal Sock Yarns. The yarn is 75% wool/25% polyamid,machine washable and dryable.
