Baby, it’s cold outside, but we’ve got the cure: cozy socks for everyone! This month’s Handmade Holiday theme is all about keeping warm, happy, and excited about the season, and this month’s Sock Membership really captures that feeling with Vidalana Ember Sport. This glowing-from-within sock yarn is a special type of self-striping, sport-weight that will help you achieve cozy toes in a little less time than traditional fingering weight.
Each skein has 340 yards of yumminess, and has been striped with five ‘blocks’ of color. Work directly from the cake to move from one to another in strong swathes of tone, or work from both ends in pairs of stripes to get a more traditional striping look. The two colorways that will ship out this month are Honey & Jam (gold, burgundy, and orchid pink), and Holly (red, burgundy, and turquoise). Which of these will appear in your crate?
For even more fun, use this month’s pattern from Myla Vayner. Holiday Candy guides you through creating a combination of contrasting heels and toes against a colorblocked foot and leg:
We know you’re excited to chat about this crate, so after you sign up, join us in the Ravelry group, where we’ve got the thread set up and ready to go. We’ll eagerly anticipate the shipments, then celebrate as we work through our socks together in this month’s knit-a-long.
