16 Weeks of Socks KAL - May 1 to August 31, 2021

May’s theme is Flora and Fauna. A bundle of accepted sock patterns can be found here.

June’s theme is Literature. A bundle of accepted sock patterns can be found here.

Choose one or choose many. The pair(s) must be cast on within May and have to be completed by the last day of June. This means you have two months to complete the pair.

For four months of the summer, one of the planned Make-along is “16 Weeks of Socks”. Our Shop has various sock yarns for any pattern: local Indy Dyed yarn, Opal, and Briggs and Little Sport and Tuffy. Of course, being a shop, we encourage you to purchase your sock yarns from us for this KAL. If you want to spin your own sock yarn, we will have suitable spinning fibres.

Each month, from May to August, a theme will be presented and, choosing a sock pattern that matches the theme for that month, you can knit a pair of socks, or two, or three…

Each pair of socks that are completed within the month and match the month’s theme, will be eligible for a prize. The more socks you knit, the greater your chances.

The 16 Weeks of Socks will culminate in a special pattern, one that celebrates the life of the late and pretty awesome Hamish the Llama who watched over his flock for 19 years and who is memorialized in the shop logo. Pre-orders for yarn and pattern can be found here and will close June 1, 2021.
