Easter knitting

When the yarn for your Easter project doesn’t arrive one has to knit Christmas socks.

35 weeks and 3 days to knit a few more pairs of these – should be doable if I plan!

The yarn is from West Yorkshire Spinners, it is their Christmas Special from 2018 in the signature 4 ply range. The yarn is 75% wool, 25% nylon and the content contains 35% luxurious Bluefaced Leicester. Lovely to knit with. I also have some of the complementary accent shade Holly Berry which was launched at the same time which I have yet to knit up.

Next stop – “Mind the Gap” – a colourway inspired by the twelve colours of the iconic London Underground Tube map. Photo’s to follow.

Happy knitting. x

I can’t help but think these look better in the photo than in the real – they seem a little washed out.
Maybe me!

Enjoy. xx
