I love to buy anything that has to do with sock knitting and spinning! Come on admit it; you do too! There are never enough yarn suppliers or different yarns for me. I always want more. One thing that does get confusing is knowing enough about a particular yarn and how it will work up for socks using a pattern that I chose. Should I buy this yarn or that yarn? What will it look like knitted up? How well will it wear? Does it hold it’s shaped? Will I need to reinforce the heels with another yarn? Round and round I go. Does that sound like you?
So I decided to start reviewing sock yarns and even potential yarns that could be used to knit socks to see how a certain brand of yarn works out on different patterns, the number of stitches, needles and so forth. After reading my reviews, you’ll know what to expect from these yarns and which yarn is the best one to buy for a particular sock pattern that you have in mind.
I have to say though that I have yet to come across a yarn that I don’t like. They are all suitable for socks but just not suitable for all sock patterns. True yarns come in different textures, fiber blends, colorways and so forth that will affect the outcome of a sock, but they still make excellent socks. You just need to know which pattern will work with which yarn. I hope to make that easier for you by reviewing each yarn.
In my reviews, I will include a sock pattern that will work best with each yarn that I designed for that purpose, and you will see for yourself how each pattern does bring out the beauty of the yarn reviewed. I also welcome any inquiries as to the best choice of yarn for your project. So if you’re unsure, please feel free to email me.
And not only will I be reviewing yarn, but I will also be reviewing many knitting and spinning related products. So keep your eyes out for the latest product review. And please note: If you have a product that you would like me to review send me an email and I’ll be happy to consider it for a future review.
Enjoy the reviews everyone!
