Self striping sock yarn and the Gilmore Girls

Hi there, do you enjoy knitting socks? Do you like self striping sock yarns? Do you enjoy colours? Do you watch the Gilmore Girls show?

If your answer is YES to any of these questions then you might be interested in an upcoming sock knitting kit.

I’m so happy and proud of this first collective collaboration that I’m doing with CC Almon of JavaPurlDesigns and Sam Boggia of KnitRunDig.

The three of us are working on this sock knitting kit that will be up for pre-order this coming Sunday June 12th. This is a very limited edition, only 30 kits will be made so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!

Each kit will include a sock pattern by CC, a project bag by Sam, hand dyed yarn by Yours Truly and lots of little goodies. And everything is tied to the Gilmore Girls show.

I got to see a picture of the finished prototype sock last week and it is gorgeous! I was so happy and proud to see this new pattern all knit up in my self striping yarn. I can’t wait to get to knit a pair myself!

So all my dyeing efforts are currently concentrated on this project. I’m dyeing a 10 color self striping yarn and let me tell you, self striping is work and 10 color self striping is a LOT of work!

Here are a few pictures I have taken to share some of the preparations for this kit on my side.

l’m showing the finished ball of yarn all grey because I don’t want to spoil anything and we have not yet shown the actual yarn and pattern but I imagine that will be done in the future, unless we decide it would be more fun for you to discover the yarn as you open your package 🙂

So if you want to join in this fun and knit a pair of beautiful socks using a limited edition self striping yarn then you need to sign up for the preorder on the Java Purl Designs website here as of June 12th.
