  • Summer Sock KAL

    June 17, 2019 2 min read

    Hello, lovelies! Last week I casually pondered out loud on Instagram that we were thinking of having a sock KAL over the summer, and being the fantastic and enthusiastic bunch you are, you responded with a big YES. It was music to our ears because as you probably already know, we love socks. We nearly always have a sock pattern in a collection and last year we dedicated an entire publication to this small accessory, SOCKS 2018.

    But enough gushing, let's get into the details of the KAL. The purpose of this sock KAL is first and foremost to have fun. It's going to be super relaxed and will begin on the 20th of June. Right now I'm not imposing a deadline, and we will start to draw prizes in August. All the prizes haven't been finalised yet but there will be plenty of woolly goodness! We will be using a hashtag for Instagram; #mssummersockkal, and there is a chatter and FO thread over in our Ravelry group. Prizes will be randomly picked from #mssummersockkal and the FO thread.

    So you know about the KAL, but what about the important bit; what will you cast on? As stated, this is a Making Stories sock KAL, so it does have to be one of our patterns. If you don't already have one of our sock patterns to hand (or foot!), we have a lot for you to choose from. Nearly all the rights for our sock patterns have reverted to our designers, which means as well as being available in each publication in our webstore, you can buy the single pattern directly from them. So, to avoid confusion and to clearly show what we have , I've collected all our socks for you below. Simply click on an image and if a pattern is available for single purchase you will be taken to the designers Ravelry store.

    I do hope you will join us for this KAL and if you have any questions at all, please do let me know.

    Until next time, woolly greetings,

    Claire x

    Hi lovelies! I kind of completely dropped the ball on putting FO posts out there, but as you all very kindly let me know through our "what do you want to read on the blog" survey, you actually really like them, so we have some catching up to do!

    We're starting with two FOs that have actually quite recently only been finished – if by recently we mean the end of 2023. They're both from Issue 10, and were both a delight to knit!

    My Favorite 3 Patterns for Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle

    February 06, 2024 3 min read

    Hi lovelies! I adore a good color-changing yarn, so imagine my excitement when I found a non-superwash, 100% wool version (not so easy to come by)! Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle comes in at 250 m / 273 yds per 100 g and knits up beautifully to a fingering-weight, sport-weight and DK gauge.

    It's fabulous on its own, and great combined with neutral solids! My top picks for yarns to go with Zauberwolle are BC Garn Semilla Melange, De Rerum Natura Ulysse and Holst Garn Supersoft. All three have a broad color range, so finding a matching or contrasting solid to your chosen color-changing yarn should be a breeze!
