Socktober is in full swing! Want to do a little project planning?

Welcome to Socktober! Here 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?
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!
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.
