A little while back, I saw an Instagram post from Greta and the Fibers that they'd been busy dyeing some sock blanks for All You Knit Is Love - and there and then, I knew I'd have to have them. While my parents were visiting me in Barcelona, we popped in briefly, where a gorgeous grey, teal and turqouise sock blank caught my eye.

They're double knit, wool and nylon, and super squishy and soft.

I've also had two club parcels arrive: one from Wildcraft, one from Hilltop Cloud.

The Wildcraft March 2015 spindle and fibre club was unbelievably beautiful. Black and white humbug Jacob wool, with splashes of bright red - "The Night Circus". With that, a black resin spindle with camelia petals, forget-me-nots, Queen Anne's lace (cow parsley), tiny watch parts and a little dark freshwater pearl, on a walnut shaft.

My Hilltop Cloud parcel was from the Time Travellers Club. To coincide with the upcoming election in the UK, this fibre is called "Suffragette", and comes in their trademark colours of green and purple, and is a scrumptiously soft mix of merino, BFL and bamboo (55/30/15).


  1. I have serious parcel envy!! I love sock blanks - I dyed some last year and they were so much to knit!! Must make some more soon....

    1. I have such a backlog of projects that I've put the sock blanks to the side for now... But I'm determined to actually finish a pair of socks for myself this year. By hook or by crook!
