We have delightful sock set duos, coordinated both in color and contrast, chosen for Westknits upcoming surprise sock KAL. Wendy is knitting them on circular Chiagoo needles, 2 at a time, which allows her to progress together so she will have a finished pair at the end of the week's final clue.
We've adjusted the second picture of the duo to monochrome to help you gauge its contrast.
Shipping to US is just $5 flat rate, so make sure you have all you need for the project, including needles and notions. Your sock set will will be festively wrapped and includes a few very small treats from Amanda Hope Yarn.
Contrast Blast Sock Set:
⚜️Two 100 gram skeins of Aussie Extra Fine Sock with Nylon (a squishy, but versatile fingering weight yarn)
