sock yarn stash

Woo, a camera! To celebrate, here's my small but growing sock yarn stash.

From the left: Purple and yellow Fyberspates: I used to love purple and yellow together. I still love purple, but yellow doesn't really suit me. But on my feet, I can get away with any colour.

Orangey brown and green Fyberspates for my sock pal. This was exactly what I wanted to make autumn-leaf-like Elfine socks.

More Fyberspates in 'Valentine'. This is going to be Pomatomus socks for me. These are my favourite colours, purple, pink, dark red.

A small skein of Hip Knits cashmere sock yarn. Lovely vibrant colours and so soft and strokable. Socks for me, probably.

You'll have to join the queue. But if you want to let me know what colour you'd like and how big your feet are, I'll think about it.

they look lovely together like that! I love it when I suddenly put 2 and 2 together and match up blogs with Hipknits orders that I've sent out! You're not too far away from me, it would be lovely to see you at one of the shop open days sometime..

I expect I'll turn up some time. I'm annoyed I can't get to the opening weekend because I'm on a course in London, but the next time you're open, I'll come and say hello.

One of the knitting experiments is taking place in Olympia at the stitching show in march.
Come and find me and take part if your going.
