Beautiful hand-painted OOAK Sock Blanks by Jillybean!
We think that these soft, squishy sock blanks are beautiful enough to wear just as they are as a scarf or joined ends for a cowl! It almost seems a shame to unravel them to knit/crochet. But watching the unpredictable and way the colours knit up is fascinating and addictive.
Perfect for making socks, sleeves, leg-warmers or wristies, two at a time on circular needles! These blanks are doubles, i.e. there are two threads of fingering/4-Ply/sock weight yarn together, so you will have a totally matching pair!
Unlike other sock blanks which are only surface painted, the wonderful Jilli has been careful to ensure both strands are painted alike. (Read more about Jilli in "The Brand" tab.)
You can even use both strands together to knit a DK project - they make gorgeous fades and shawls!!
- No more winding balls, or rolling, tangling balls when you're knitting two items at the same time.
- No more worrying about unmatched socks.
- Knit two socks at the same time and eliminate the need to count.
- No more second sock syndrome!
Sock blank yarn will be gently kinked, since you’re pulling it off as live stitches which can cause your knitting to look a little bumpy and uneven, but this will be completely fixed with some gentle blocking.
