Big Happenings at The Purple Sock


Hello everyone!


Owning a yarn shop is cool, but sometimes it is SUPER COOL! And this week

has been just amazing with the release of my own signature yarn!


New indie dyer, Jane Steeves from 3 Dog Knits ( love the name,) has been

working away all summer on dyeing yarns in my three favourite colours,

purple,  green and turquoise ..and here are the results!!


Using a beautiful BFL( Blue Face Leicester) Superwash in a fingering/sock

weight, these 115 gram skeins are 80% BFL, and 20% nylon, perfect for warm

and comfy socks or whatever other project you have in mind.


It was great fun choosing the names for my yarns...hope you like them! From

the left we have the "Purple Sock Party", "Eggplant & Broccoli" and "Grape

Jelly" (this one has cashmere added to the mix) ...oh,and one more thing!!

Check out the sweet little stitch marker that comes with each skein of yarn.


And if this were not enough excitement, we are pleased to carry these super

new project bags from "Bling Your String".


For just $20.00, these make terrific gifts for the knitters in your life (

including yourself!)...I just love the fun and funky fabric she has chosen,

complete with a purple zipper,and purple polka dot lining, just for fun!



Hope to see you soon,

Happy Knitting, and Happy Thanksgiving
