This week we are keeping things merry and bright in the twinkling colours of the season with a project that is sure to bring jolly smiles around the Christmas tree. As a stocking stuffer or ‘after holiday’ gift, these cosy wrist socks are as much fun to knit as they are to wear.
May your holidays sparkle and shine
with moments of love, laughter, and goodwill.
From all of us at Diamond Yarn, we wish joy and peace
to you and yours this festive season.
Knit in Poems Sock, a superwash wool and nylon blend yarn that is magically-dyed to allow colors to gradually travel from one set to the next, and repeat again all within one 100g ball. Choose from nineteen gradient shades and knit a pair or two!
