Dubious Honour: for one day only

Tomorrow, August 22, 2015, we will be attending Socks Ed at Shall We Knit in Waterloo Ontario.  At the event, we will have a special colourway available.  This colour will also be for sale on our website (link will ONLY be active with the ordering page starting at 9 am on August 22) for one day only. Skeins ordered on the website will be dyed to order and shipped within 2-3 weeks.

This colourway, dyed in honour of the launch of Kate Atherley‘s new book Custom Socks, is inspired by this dress:

This colourway is made up of 6 of our regular colours that are inspired by movies and television…a virtual cornicopia of media.


This colourway is available for order on three yarn bases:

CaribouBaa (Sock)

Chameleon Sock

Please note: this is a highly variegated colourway that includes varying amounts of orange, white, green, blue, magenta, gold and grey. Every skein is unique. When ordering more than one in the same base, we will give you the best matching skeins available.
