This week is the second part of our posts about the wonderful new book from Laine Publishing. 52 weeks of socks, We’re looking at more patterns this week and also showcasing our fabulous collection of sock yarns and some pieces of haberdashery! We’re also holding a giveaway this week, both here on the blog and on Instagram. So read on to find out more.
We would like to present some of the beautiful patterns from 52 weeks of socks! We suggest good replacement hosiery here because some of the yarns used are those that we do not have at Loop. We also looked through some of the sock patterns that used yarns that we posted in our post last week. So take a look at that too!
We have a large selection of sock yarns for different budgets. We have both hand-dyed sock yarn and machine-dyed base yarn that is perfect for everyday workhorse socks.
There are so many beautiful sock yarns in the world and no store will have them all. We believe we have a great selection. If we suggest a different yarn than the one used in the book, it’s not because we don’t love this yarn – we just don’t have a place for everyone. We are sure that they are all beautiful. We make suggestions from the stock based on the fact that it comes as close as possible to the fiber content and location.
3 sheets by Paula Pereira
3 sheets use Julie Asselin Nomad; We encourage you to give it a try Madelinetosh Twist Light instead. The twist light gives the pretty lace and cable details of these socks a great stitch definition.
Verbena by Sachiko Burgin
Vervain use Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock, but we recommend La Bien Aimee Tough Sock as alternative.
Lucerna by Fabienne Gassman
We especially love this sock pattern because Fabienne is one of our loopettes! Fabienne’s socks use John Arbon Exmouth Sock, which is held together with ONION Knit Silk + Kid Mohair. We think they are pretty knitted La Bien Aimee Tough Sock kept with Isager Silk Mohair,
Craspedia by Andrea Mowry
These fun socks use Retrosaria Mondim, but we recommend Life in the long grass Fine Sock as a replacement.
Boyland by Caitlin Hunter
These colored work socks are certainly an interesting knitwear and use the Soka’pii base from The Farmer’s Daughter Fiber. However, we recommend replacing them with one of the two Long yes, or the Wool socks Mammut mini bundle up. If you choose Woolly Mammoth, you can combine it with a special strand of sock yarn from your stock!
Casual lace by Isabell Kraemer
These socks by Isabell Kraemer are one of the pairs in 52 Weeks of Socks that use a higher yarn weight – they are knitted from Retrosaria Brusca, a light worsted weight. We recommend using Brooklyn Tweed Arbor as a replacement. The lace will knit quickly in this weight of yarn and will make a very pretty pair of socks to wear with boots.
Garcia by Erika Lopez A
Garcia are knitted from Greta and the Fibers Raval, but we think they are knitted in one of the beautiful colors of beautiful Life in the long grass Fine Sock,
Erika by Anna Heumann
This pair is great for wearing with lace-up shoes or shorts! The suggested yarn is The Fiber Co. Cumbria Fingering, but they would be awesome knitted The unusual thread Tough Sock,
Loop also has a few self-streaking sock yarns in stock that are perfect for spicing up a simple sock. We have that Kremke Soul Lazy Lion Sock wool and the Schoppel Wolle Crazy Zauberball, Both are available in 100 g strands, so you can make a pair of stockings with one stocking! The magic ball is shown here with our magic ball Lykke DPN discontinued in the small size.
Some of the sweet haberdashery we have at Loop are perfect for making socks. The sweet ones are shown CocoKnits precious metal engraving marker, our popular stainless steel Socks blockers (these are available in 3 sizes), ours Chiaogoo DPN sets (We have both bamboo and steel), and ours Lykke DPN discontinued in the small size. The socks are knitted Life in the long grass Fine Sock,
We also have plenty in stock Addi Crasy Trio needles; These are hybrid circular / DPN needles that are perfect for people who love working with DPNs.
