Starting Summer of 2021, Izzy Knits will be offering customers the opportunity to join Dream in Color's monthly "Sock It! Club". Each month, from July through November, participants will be sent a mystery kit with one full skein and one mini skein of hand-dyed Smooshy yarn...just what one needs to knit a colorful pair of socks.
In the meantime, we've created some kits of our own, with Susan's favorite Dream in Color colorways (paired exclusively for Izzy Knits) and Madeline Gannon's easy Afterthought Heel Socks pattern.
Like the name implies, Smooshy is exceptionally, well, smooshy! This soft, machine-washable merino/nylon blend sock yarn is especially perfect for socks and baby garments. Each skein is a generous 420 yards, so one is more than enough for a pair of adult-sized socks or other larger one-skein project!
For the kits, we've paired each skein with a coordinating mini for a contrasting sock toe, heel, and cuff.
