Opus 600 socks in Wharfedale woolworks merino bamboo and Sirdar Salsa!

It’s been a while since I posted and lots has happened. My building work has finished and the children are back at school so it’s all systems go. CableMabel is on the mend and making up for lost time. We have published our first hat, Opus 1200, and have started to make sales on the others.

We have started using some test knitters and there are several working on Opus 200 as we speak. The feedback has been great and very useful, and it’s wonderful to see our socks in someone else’s choice of yarn. I will be putting Opus 600 out to test soon so if you’re interested, find us on Ravelry and get onto the test knitters group.

My new design, Opus 800 socks, are finished and the pattern is with CableMabel to write the top-down version. As a sneak preview, it uses Sirdar Reflection to give a fluffy glitzy pattern on the leg. The top-down version will be quite Christmassy so they will make a great present.

Experiments with dyeing are afoot and I will update you on that as and when any success is achieved!
