August 2016 Sock Knit Along
This listing is for a series of DIGITAL DOWNLOADs for the August 2016 Sock Knit Along (KAL). This exciting and fun online Knit Along features an original sock knitting pattern by designer Phyll Lagerman, sponsored by Lucky Violet Color Co and hosted by J. L. Fleckenstein. This knit along is for a pair of adult women's socks plus a bonus pattern for a little girl's socks. How cool is that, right?
We are very excited to partner up with Phyll for this KAL, which happens to also feature our beautiful sock yarn(s). The pattern will be released in three stages, two weeks apart from August 15, 2016 through September 15, 2016. Phyll's patterns are highly detailed with plenty of photographs and helpful hints and she provides online videos to help show you the way. You will also find plenty of online help and conversations in the J. L. Fleckenstein fan group at Ravelry where you will find a great friendly, safe community of knitters ready to chat, share, answer questions and oooh and ahhhh at each others' progress and finished object photos.
What could be more fun?
Phyll recommends our divinely soft Wendy yarn base as your first choice for this pattern, and we have some fantastic summer colorways designed especially to give a sense of summertime nostalgia later in the year when you your socks are keeping your toes cozy on a cold winter night. With more than 70 dyed-to-order drool-worthy colorways (and counting) to choose from, you will have great fun shopping for the perfect one for you or someone you love.
For a luxurious pair of socks, you might want to try our exclusive MCN blend, Betty. This is milled to our specifications (60% Fine Wool, 30% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon) in the U.S. A. and is the softest, squishiest MCN available.
