How do You Wear Your Summer Socks?
One more month of real summer, and if it doesn’t rain the entire time, we may get to play in the sun! For August, we are going to celebrate socks. Join us for some sock fun in both the needlepoint and knitting rooms.
In the needlepoint room, find mini- to full-size stockings. Most are for the winter holiday season, and many are whimsical. Subjects vary from the pets, to hobbies, angels, snowmen, candies, scenes, etc. All stocking canvases are 15% off for the month of August.
Be sure to check out new needlepoint items arriving daily.
***Christmas Needlepoint Finishing Deadline: If you want your project ready for the Holidays, it must be submitted to us by September 1, for all of our finishers.
“What kind of yarn do I need to knit socks?” “What is a ‘Sock Yarn’, and is it only for socks ?” Theoretically, you can use almost any fiber to make socks, although there are many blend combinations that work best for most of us. A ‘sock yarn’ is any yarn chosen to make socks. Yarn labeled ‘sock yarn’ can be knit into many other articles. That said, read the comments on sock yarns on our FAQ page.
Here at Yarn Explosion, we offer at least 32 different ‘Sock Yarns’, any of which can be knit into socks, hats, scarves/shawls, baby items, shirts, wraps, etc. Most are fingering weight and are also extremely popular for the exciting scarves and shawls all over Ravelry.
For the month of August, all regularly designated Sock Yarns and sock patterns/books will be reduced 15%. Wear your favorite pair of hand knit socks or other item knit with a ‘sock yarn’ and receive a free sock/sock yarn pattern.
Come celebrate August with us, stay cool, and think SOCKS!
