We welcome Tradition Sock to our Diamond Luxury line of yarns.
This sturdy new sock yarn comes in 16 lovely heather colours.
This blend of wool acrylic and nylon is spun with a soft by sturdy twist that allows it to be washed in warm water and to be tumble dried on low.
Although it’s called “Sock”, it is a sport weight yarn that can be used to knit or crochet any project that requires sport weight.
I am starting to design and knit a pair of toe-up socks with it and I will share the progress as I go. Here’s the start.
This pattern is going to have a different left and right foot toe, so I’m sloping the one side more gradually than the other so that the point is off-center, just like out longest toe is on each foot.
I’m knitting with a 2mm ChiaoGoo circular needle because I like a dense, warm fabric for my socks.
