We have socks on our minds at Wool on the Exe!
Here in the shop we're all big fans of handknit socks; we love knitting socks, wearing handknit socks, and of course, we LOVE sock yarn! Debbie's lively window display is a celebration of this, featuring some of the handknit socks that we sell in the shop, alongside some of our favourite yarns. We have also been lucky to be loaned some fabulous hobby horses made from socks by the kindergarten students at the Exeter Steiner Academy.
We know that many of our customers share our enthusiasm for all things sock, and sock yarn, related so we'd like to hear from you for our next photo competition; Show Us Your Socks!
To join in please show us your favourite handknit socks, your collection of socks, or anything that you have made with sock yarn, alongside any sock knitting (or crochet!) tips, or stories that you would like to share. On Monday 18th March we will pick a winner at random to receive a ball of Austermann Step 4 ply in your choice of colour, a set of your preferred sock knitting needles and a pair of sock blockers.
