Happy October, my yarny friends! This autumn season is shaping up to be a beautiful one here on Vancouver Island; the air has already shifted from summer breezes to cool, crisp mornings. I hope your fall projects are going well! There are plenty of ways to add uniqueness to your projects this season, whether it be adding poms or trying something entirely new. One way to help your pieces pop is by using hand-dyed yarn! It is a perfect choice, as it is a stunning craft within itself and provides a limitless selection to choose from. Hand-dyed yarn is ideal for any knitter wanting to give their projects greater depth and beauty. It truly makes a piece so much more personal.
This month’s yarn is hand-dyed by Marissa from Rocky Mountain Yarn Co. Marissa dyed up a 50 gram skein set and it is amazing. It’s called Witch in the Woods & New Moon – the name fits perfectly!
I’ll be making some witchy striped socks, no particular pattern.. just carrying my yarn as I go with a short row heel. Each sock with have opposite Cuffs/Heels/Toes.

So, you’ve seen all these pretty skeins of Suri silk alpaca or Mohair and you’re probably wondering what to make with them right?
I’ve linked some great patterns below. I personally love holding it double with fingering, especially different colors to see the different colors it creates. These patterns are all different weights – some are two lace held together, some held with fingering and some held with DK. Ther is a little something for everyone in here!
So, you’ve purchased a 50 gram sock set and are now wondering “what am I going to make with these 50 gram skeins..”.. right? Yep.. been there.
