The first Vintage Purls Winter Sock club of 2011 has arrived. Morag has a new yarn base - DK weight nylon blend, her first taster was sent out to us all for the Winter sock club in a lovely deep red called 'Max'. She also supplied two pattern choices, a thicker simple house sock or Tweedle a linen stitch beret with a funky new ribbed cast on to learn. There was also some fudge that has long since gone and a couple of cute badges that are now pinned to the hat. It took less than a week to knit up, even with learning the new cast on and stitch. It then was blocked with a dinner plate to get the shape. Now back to the silk road socks!
