New Spring Sock Yarns 2021

We have received several shipments of new spring yarns, featuring all new qualities and colours of sock yarn. All these yarns are soft, durable, washable and great for socks, shawls or baby garments. 

New fabulous colours in Lang Supersoxx. 100 grams 75% Wool 25% Nylon. A wonderful all season yarn. 

A new yarn from Pro Lana, Alicante, is a perfect Spring/Summer sock yarn that includes stretch. They are 100 grams and made up of 41% Cotton, 39% Wool, 13% Polyamide, 7% Elite Stretch. Feels like a cotton but with the strength and durability of a traditional sock yarn.

Back in stock, the very popular Sock Twin from Estelle. Two identical 50 gram balls of 75% Wool 25% Nylon make a perfectly matching ombré pair of socks. 

For those looking for a completely wool free sock yarn/4ply fingering, we have all new and returning favourite colours in Universal's Bamboo Pop Sock. So soft and comfortable to wear. 

Knitting and Crochet Project Ideas For Spring/Summer

Just because the snow is gone here in Calgary, doesn't mean knitters put their needles away. Here are some fresh ideas for projects to knit or crochet on the deck in the backyard with a cold drink as we look forward to better days ahead.

Warmer weather always inspires us to knit with bright vibrant colours. Made with just one ball of Noro's Taiyo Sport, a beautiful silk/cotton/wool blend from Japan, this light weight cowl is the perfect way to try the entrelac stitch for the first time. A selection of the colours available pictured below. 

Knit this simple child sweater or tee in Sirdar's Snuggly Replay DK, a soft machine washable cotton blend with none of the stiffness of a traditional cotton yarn.  Sizes 3 -7 years.  Colours available pictured below.

Nothing says spring/summer like a sundress. Knit this one in Berroco's Modern Cotton, a lovely rayon/cotton blend available in a rich array of colours. This adorable pattern is knit top down in one piece with no seams and is available in sizes 2-8 years. Choose from the vibrant colours pictured below.

Cake yarns are fun because they make a beautiful ombré, the next colour is always just a few rows away. Katia's Concept Silk Degradé, a cool silk/cotton/viscose blend, comes in soft beachy colours and with either of the following two patterns. They are free with the purchase of this yarn and take just one ball: a simple knit shawl or a cute crocheted ponchette. Colours available pictured bellow.
