Tough Love Sock from SweetGeorgia is making it's way across Canada to us. Right now the scheduled delivery date is Tuesday (December 1).
A perfect blend of warmth and strength to make a hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse. Tough Love Sock is our best-selling yarn and knits up beautifully into fine-gauge sweaters, small shawls, as well as socks! Spun from 80% superwash and super soft merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile — knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls, or knit it doubled for a great worsted weight substitute. Suggested gauge for sock knitting: US 0-1 (2-2.25mm) | 8 sts/1″
390m (425 yards) on a 100gram skein

$30 a skein

Choosing colours was very hard. Felicia has many, many beautiful colours. I chose a few colours and then I went with SweetGeorgia's best selling colours.
We love the Party of Five Tough Love Sock kits and there will be many colourways in the shipment.
From SweetGeorgia
We’ve been indulging in colour since 2005 and in celebration of our 10-year anniversary, we’ve made these very special gradient mini-skein kits! These five-colour gradient sets are currently available in Tough Love Sock. Each set contains five 105-yard mini-skeins for a total of 525 yards.

One kit will make Soft Twilight -  a new pattern than you can purchase on Ravelry
Delicate slipped stitches and beginner cables meander across the fabric of this asymmetrical shawl, creating a beautiful, airy effect. The subtle shift of colours from our Party of Five set captivates our attention, reminding us of the soft hues that dance the snow at twilight.

The kits aren't here yet but you can be prepared. SweetGeorgia is offering a discount on their patterns (including Sweet Twilight) for a few days.
We want to give thanks to all of YOU who have allowed us at SweetGeorgia to spend our days creating colours for you to enjoy and express your creativity.
