    Welcome to SocktoberHere at Making Stories, we love Autumn, and we love knitting socks, which is why we're so excited to be stocking some of the most beautiful natural sock yarns around. When we were thinking about something fun we could do to celebrate the start of Autumn, a Socktober celebration seemed like the perfect thing. After all, Hanna Lisa has big a huge fan of sock knitting for a long time now, and I've recently started to turn quite a few heels myself!

    If you've been around a while, you know that we always like to do a little giveaway or gift to mark an event, and for Socktober, we decided that for a short time we would give away a free copy of our e-book SOCKS 2018 to every customer who purchased a skein of sock yarn from us between October 4 - 10.

    Not only is it really fun to run these promotions, it also got us rediscovering the patterns from SOCKS 2018, and falling in love all over again. I thought it would be fun to do a little pattern and yarn pairing, are you ready for some major project inspiration?


    Source & Snowdonia

    The simple yet satisfying cables of Source would look lovely in this new colourway of  . That green is perfection!


    Roots & Corridale Sock

     Cables, moss stitch and ribbing - Roots is full of gorgeous texture, and it would look so good in the Amber colourway of  . Talk about Autumn vibes!


    Ascent & Mominoki Finnwool

    We love the vibrant pop of pink that Ascent was originally knit in, but with its delicate eyelets and sweet ripples, we think it would look equally lovely in this soft grey from  .


    Arising & woollentwine

     These   from woollentwine are perfect for Arising, and that green and pale pink combo is so pretty!


    Provenance & Mominoki Finnwool

     The shell pattern on the front of Provenance gives me serious seaside vibes, and this beautiful   would work so well!


    Origin & Oysters & Purls Corriedale

     Origin has such a fun shaped cuff, and while Oysters & Purls Corridale Sportis a little heavier than the original yarn, I think it would work really well here for a pair of cozy slipper socks, or for when you'd like a slightly thicker sock to wear with winter boots!


    Reason & woollentwine Corriedale Sock Set

    While Reason looks beautiful in one single colour, I think it would be really nice to try it with contrasting heels, cuffs and toes too! The Corriedale Sock Sets from woollentwine would really shine and work well with the simple cables and stitch details in Reason.

    My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns
    My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns

    Hello lovelies,

    One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!

    I narrowed it down to my five favorite patterns (well, of right now) in color combinations that showcase the full rainbow of Bérénice colors. I've put a ton more patterns over on our Pinterest Board for pattern inspo for fluffy yarns if you're looking for more!

    Now, though, let's take a look at my top 5!

    Hi lovelies!

    I'm thrilled to be back in this space, and with something really, really exciting at that! For the past year, I've been on the hunt for a sustainably-produced fluffy yarn - we used to carry Knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair which is delightful, but also... everyone has it now? So I was looking for something that was a little out of the ordinary, but also responsibly sourced, and as it goes with anything that involves mohair and silk, that was really hard.

    Cue De Rerum Natura, who secretly have been working behind the scenes at exactly that yarn I'd been looking for: An "as sustainably as it can get" fluff yarn that works perfectly for a broad range of projects, from whispers of lace shawls to holding it together with more substantial yarns.
