Hunter Hammersen just released a new sock pattern using Handwerks Sock Plus 8. Its offered at

Not only is it free but there is a contest for a free skein of yarn to go with the pattern. Follow the link and read the blog to find out all the details.

I always get so excited when I see my yarns knit up. I love them in the dye pot and skeined up but it’s particularily thrilling to see what someone’s creative mind and nimble fingers can knit with them! Hunter’s sock patterns are lovely. They are so knitable and wearable.  I’m anxious to get started on my own pair of Gramery……..Thanks Hunter!

Off to knit-

P.S. – This is perfect timing  since new stock of Sock Plus 8 is on its way in larger 120 gram skeins.

Classic Sock

I’ve just re-introduced a great yarn. Classic Sock yarn is 100% superwash merino, 3-ply , nice and round, springy, soft, smooth and shiny.  Its packaged in 100 gram skeins/480 yards. Its plenty for a pair of socks. Last year it was under the name of Necessary 3-ply and its come back this year with its own new name.

I’ll be dyeing and posting it in small 5 skein batches, 4-6 colors every 3-4 weeks as time and stock permits. I got a great deal on this yarn and am able to offer it at a great price to you!

Sneak peak of some of the colors – 

Happy New Year

Seems appropriate to start off the New Year thinking about yarns! I’m evaluating my yarns and planning ahead for 2010!

It’s all about color. It’s how and why I got into dyeing yarns.  It’s what inspires me. It’s the primary reason people seem to be drawn to a yarn. I’d like to offer more colors in fewer yarns. That’s good news – a couple of fabulous yarns in lots and lots of mix and match colors.  I’ll still be sampling some new yarns but I’ll be concentrating on a couple of high quality, versatile yarns.

My New Year’s resolution: Focus on high quality yarn in more colors to choose from. Sounds about  right for 2010.

Introducing the New Sport Sock Yarn

I’m so excited to offer a new yarn. Its a multi-ply, 8 plies to be exact, tightly twisted, dense, springy, stretchy 100% superwash merino sport weight yarn! It comes in 65 gram skeins. Each skein has 214 yards, so you will need two skeins for a pair of socks. Its a wonderful weight and feels great knit up!.

I also have a beautiful Peacock Rib sock pattern available free with the purchase of this yarn. The pattern was designed exclusively for Handwerks Sport Sock yarn by Jocelyn Blair.

Treat yourself to an early Holiday gift!
