The sock yarn has arrived

I ordered sock yarn from Countess Ablaze on etsy and it arrived and I am in love.

My daughter asked for purple socks, and it seems to me that I actually like purple a lot I just never knew it.

The skeins come beautifully wrapped in printed burlap and buttoned up.  Not that they need any beautifying.

The colors are saturated and vibrant almost identical to the pictures online.

I can’t wait to start knitting these up into socks.


It is 75% Superwash Wool  and 25% Nylon.  A single skein weighs 100g and is approximately 400m / 437yds, and since I like my cuffs nice and short I think I can make an adult sock and a little sock for the little person who wanted the purple socks in the first place.

      Shop and ship. I had the yarn delivered to my UK address. I think she ships internationally but i dont really trust the local postal system.
