Loop is turning 15! Starting from Thursday the 1st of October and through the coming weeks, we are kicking off a month of all sorts of lovely projects and wonderful things for you to join us in celebrating our 15th anniversary. We are starting with the revival of a specially dyed colour from Spincycle Yarns called Venus in Furs.
This Toe-Up Socks with Afterthought Heel Pattern is a Loop favourite. We’ve offered it, as a free pattern, for the last five years and we can see that at least 423 of you have listed your projects on Ravelry! We thought it was time to refresh the pattern and make a new version in one of our favourite sock yarns, Madelintosh Twist Light.
One of the final dyers who have contributed to our anniversary book is Koigu. Their one-of-a-kind colour ways are hand painted, capturing a little bit of magic and creativity in each speckle of dye. Now we have not one, but two custom shades to inspire new projects and colour combinations. Make sure to read to the end of the blog to find out about our giveaway – two readers can win two skeins of our Koigu Anniversary colours! (This competition is now closed – but we’ll certainly have more in the future)
