I know many of you are sock lovers!

Colour Me Crazy socks by Helen Gipson are so interesting with their little raised lines of colour and look fantastic for using up scraps. You could make these entirely from stash and end up with something beautiful to keep or gift!


The weather is getting colder here in Scotland, so these little colourwork penguins would appreciate that! Take a look at these adorable socks by designer Kirsten McTeer.


If you’re more into working with one colour but still want a pair of showstopper socks, look no further than these pretty little anklet socks by designer Tracy Lee. They look stunning in this pink, and have just the right mix of plain knitting and lace. A great design for showing off solid colour sock yarn.

And now the hands. Use the discount code to save on all of these beauties!

I love the bold geometric colourwork pattern used to great effect in Bedford Mittens by designer Jen Lucas, they certainly have the wow factor.

If you like your mitts fingerless, these beautiful Muddy River Mitts by Handarbeitskram have a single stand-out feature cable running along the back, they really look fun to knit and great for gifting, who wouldn’t want a pair of these to wear on a cold day!

For the more ambitious who want to make a pair of full fingered gloves, here’s my pick, I’m going to be making these ones myself so if you fancy joining in, this is the pattern to get! Lagniappe Gloves by Emily Ringelman. They have beautiful cabling all over the back of the hand.

And…you all know I’m a lefty. And I knit lefty. And I am very left-handed. So these HAD to go in my round-up. Need I say more!

How about some colourwork mittens in a super bulky weight? These Latvian Boxes mittens by Denise Balvanz should knit up very quick for last minute gifts (always a bonus!).

Don’t forget to use coupon code giftalong2015 at checkout as with all of these designs, to get your 25% discount until 27 November.
