Admiral Cat Print is another of Schoppel's hand-dyed yarns. This is a classic sock yarn with 75% Superwash Wool/25% Nylon. Cat Print is perfect for socks but also for lace shawls. Many of my designs take just 100gr of sock yarn and this is a perfect choice. Over the coming months I'll be having this knitted up in some of my old designs and maybe even design something new.
What about Aurora?
I've already re-knitted several designs and designed new designs with Crazy Zauberball. I love this yarn. It's also been my favourite sock yarn this year. My Mum knitted Em a pair of sock for this about 4 years ago which she still wears (although they're getting a bit small on her now) so they make hard wearing socks. I've knitted 3 pairs for myself so far this year with another pair on the needles.
My Crème Brûlée sock pattern is a pattern written for new sock knitters with extra info to make knitting the socks easier.
I knitted up a new version of Mar Menor with this yarn just before Woolfest.
A few months ago I had a new version of Simplicity knitted up in Zauberball but I forgot to include it in the latest photoshoot I did with Vanessa so I'll be doing that in the next few weeks but it looks very effective knitted up in this simple shawl which has a choice of a triangular shape or a half-hexagon shape. Perfect shawl if you're new to lace knitting.
Lace Ball and Lace Ball 100 has the same long colour repeats as Zauberball but has 800m per 100gr ball. Just before Woolfest, one of my knitters re-knitted my Piccadilly shawl in a stunning Lace Ball colour. I LOVE this shawl. My favourite colours. We sold lots of this pattern and yarn at Woolfest..
Or what about Goonhilly?
If you prefer solid sock yarns, we've got a selection of Admiral too. This is a classic 75% Superwash Wool/25% Nylon sock yarn with 420m per 100gr ball in beautiful solid colours. Perfect for more intricate socks and shawl patterns.
