Gorgeous yarn

So happy with this yarn, colour is so lovely. Although I haven’t cast on a project yet - I am looking forward to knitting a pair of socks for my daughter. It is dyed in West Cork - where I spent my childhood- do heightens the joy of this yarn. I mustn’t forget to mention all the lovely people at This is Knit - I have had the pleasure of visiting the store- should be on all yarn lovers bucket list as a place to visit- and I have ordered online - and service was brilliant too.

High twist beautiful sock yarn!!

LITLG is a wonderful sock yarn in beautiful hand-dyed colours that are a joy to knit with. Easy to pair with contrasting solids for heels and toes. One of my favourite sock yarns and made here in Ireland. What could be better???!!!! :)
