My Twined knitted socks are coming in very useful in the Swedish summer evenings. These are a grey version of my Ulla Socks, knitted of course in lovely Ullcentrum 2 thread yarn. As I have said before — you just can’t beat a pair of Twined woolly socks!
There won’t be any posts for a while, as I am in Scandinavia having a holiday, researching and knitting…
Despite the fantastic hot sunny weather during the day, it is still chilly enough in the evenings to want to wear a pair of woolly socks — and you can’t beat a pair of twined woolly socks for comfort.
Twined knitting is uniquely firm and durable and if you use a great wool yarn such as Ullcentrum’s pure wool, you are on to a winning combination.

Designing for the Everyday: from Bloomsbury and Ravilious to the present day is a new exhibition at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne.
It opened with a discussion with three of the St Jude’s Artists who are featured in the exhibition — Angie Lewin, Mark Hearld and Ed Kluz.

It runs until the 31st August — and is free!
