Just in time for gift knitting we have received a beautiful batch of sock yarns from Indigo Dragonfly. This Ontario, hand dying enterprise create some rich and decadent colours when they dye their yarns. Each one comes with an equally creative name and therefore a story. It is certainly icing on the cake to tell the recipient of your hand knit socks that they are not only made with love but the colour is called “Cumberbacchanal”. Especially if that recipient is a fan of the TV series Sherlock .
Here are some highlights from this order:
Don’t Blink (Dr. Who)
Dawn’s In Trouble; Must Be Tuesday
Only The Exact Phrase I Used Was Don’t (Firefly)
Hungry Hungry Dystopos
This yarn is composed of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon, so they will make nice and strong, washable socks! Each skein has 356m , which is ample for a pair of socks and each costs $26.
