In an exciting array of self-patterning colorways, this sock yarn is enriched with aloe vera and jojoba oil, for softness and healthy, happy feet.

Featured Design: Don't limit your thinking to just socks, either. Ilga Leja's Painters Palette is a feminine shawl that highlights the wonderful colorways of self-striping yarn. Starting with a provisional cast on, the colored stripes work across the body in straight rows, yet ruffle out into the gathered edging, with the use of short rows. Suitable for intermediate knitters, Painters Palette can be worn in several ways, including as a shrug (with a few well placed stitches), and uses fingering or sport weight yarn knit to a loose gauge. With finished measurements of 133cm long by 53cm wide (53.5 x 21"), it uses 850m (930 yd) of fingering or sport weight yarn - works out to just 3 balls of Austermann Step.
Standard price for this yarn is US$17.95 - discounted price saves you as much as 50%!
