Crafty Housewife Yarn

This is some of the most luscious sock yarn I have ever had the privilege of working with! It is incredibly soft to the touch, with a beautiful subtle shimmer that practically glows. The combination of merino wool and bamboo give the finished fabric an incredible drape, and when worn feels silky soft and luxurious.
The color “Bee’s Knees” was dyed specifically with these socks in mind and I couldn’t be more thrilled. With it’s warm golden honey base, just a touch of warmer orange, and speckles of black and brown thrown in for interest, it is truly the perfect color for these honeycomb socks.

    the kit is wonderful I love the color for Bees Knees socks , I notice the pattern is for toe up, but I feel more comfortable with cuff down patterns so I will make adjustments. So the 2 hanks are enough for the knee length? How many yards in each skein? G.

      The pattern includes instructions for both toe up AND top down. Use whichever method works best for you 🙂
      The yarn skeins are enormous with 560 yards each! You will have more than enough to make the knee socks, and maybe even enough to make a pair of calf high socks too.
