Felicia's Notebook, SweetGeorgia, Taking Back Friday

Cherry Blossoms, Sock Blanks, and Gauge

Custom SweetGeorgia Akerworks Swatch Gauge

Despite everything that’s going on in the world right now, I’m very thankful about one fantastic thing that’s happening in Vancouver right now, and that is that spring is here! Time marches on, seasons keep coming and spring is here.

Spring in Vancouver is really, really lovely – the air is fresh, there’s sunshine outside, it feels just wonderful. Spring in Vancouver brings a few things to mind that I want to talk about today. First is spring cleaning, second is cherry blossoms and new sock blanks which we’ll talk about today, and the last thing is new sweaters.

    Those blanks are beautiful. Are they double, though? Because if not then you would have mismatched socks, right?

      Thanks for your message! They are single sock blanks… you would have fraternal (mismatched) socks, if you knit this sock blank into socks. But we have been using these sock blanks for shawls and other projects!
