Sock Yarn Shawl

My wonderful new friends at have sent me some of my favourite sock yarn to play with, and I have decided to create a new shawl pattern with this yarn.

 I will create a design the shows off the thick stripes of this particular colourway, the Grey Brown Marl Kroy, and will post the pattern on a future entry.  Meanwhile if you would like easy access to a great mail order site, please pop over to, and pick up four balls of Kroy for this shawl project, or two balls of Kroy for my most knit pattern: The Best Sock Pattern Ever!
Here is another photo of The best sock pattern ever, featuring an old colourway of Kroy Sock Yarn.  Kroy yarn has been my "go to" yarn for socks, as it is durable, washable and stands up to many years of wear, and it has great colours every year.  This pattern fits well and even beginners seem to "get" the heel turn (sometimes with a little local yarn shop help). 
See you in a couple of weeks with the finished shawl!  Happy knitting.
