    October 05, 2021 2 min read

    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.

    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine
    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine

    June 17, 2024 6 min read

    We've seen dramatic changes in the knitting magazine landscape over the past 12 months: Pom Pom Quarterly ceased publication at the end of 2023, Laine sold the majority of their company to one of the biggest Finnish publishers, and Amirisu first pivoted to books, and now to an online-only media outlet. Multicraftual magazines that often included knitting patterns were equally as affected: Making pivoted to a combined app and monthly membership business model, and Taproot first changed to a preorder model, and then very abruptly closed their business (the website is offline, hence no link).

    This has left us standing as one of the very, very few indie knitting magazines in the market.

    12 Combinations of Bérénice and Semilla Melange I Love

    Hi my lovelies! When we received our latest restock of BC Garn's Semilla Melange (one of my favorite sustainable budget-friendly yarns - 100% wool, non-superwash, GOTS-certified), I couldn't resist: I had to pull out our box of De Rerum Natura Bérénice, the wonderful fluffy silk-mohair-merino yarn, to see if I could find a few color matches.

    And I did! 12 perfect matches – I couldn't believe it. So naturally, I had to share them with you!

    24 Perfect Color Matches for Zauberwolle

    Hi lovelies! You know how much I adore our 100% non-superwash wool color-changing yarn "Zauberwolle", right? I already knit myself a Pressed Flowers Hat and a Pressed Flowers Cardigan in it, and I can't wait to get the next project on the needles.

    I thought it would be really cool to combine Zauberwolle with BC Garn's Semilla Melange, a wonderfully woolly GOTS-certified sport-weight yarn. (I knit the Pressed Flowers Cardigan in this exact combo, and it's a good one.) So imagine my delight when I realized how many colors of Semilla Melange actually work perfectly with the color-changing magic of Zauberwolle!

    Without further ado, let me introduce you to a whopping 24 perfect color matches!
