There are plenty of sock yarns available to choose from. Kate and Angela are knitting with West Yorkshire Spinners signature 4ply. We love their latest limited edition yarns – Fairy Lights is a perfect choice for quick Christmas makes (you can even buy ready made socks in this gorgeous yarn if you’re short on time – buy them here) and we also love this special yarn for Marie Curie, of which £2 from every ball goes directly to the charity.


Kate and Angela are also using Clover’s Takumi double pointed needles. These fantastic artisan bamboo needles come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes including circular, and straight sizes from 2 – 10mm. For stockist information contact
