Bloodlines

After running the Bloodlines Sock Club with Alice Yu (Socktopus) in 2011, I wanted to ventured out on mine own to create knitting kits themed on my favourite books, T.V. programmes and just about anything else that takes my fancy..

In Bloodlines we merged our love of Twilight, True Blood and Supernatural with three original sock patterns and six exclusive yarns. To create on Sock Club! Each Kit included

  • An Original Pattern by Socktopus
  • Exclusively dyed by Socktopus
  • A themed project bag or notion tin.
  • A handmade stitch marker.
  • Premium extras themed around the kits.

These Kits will not be available again however, the patterns are featured in Alice’s Book, Socktopusand some of the yarns are available via the Socktopus online store.

Spoiler

In case you are undecided about signing up or can’t wait until next month for your first kit to arrive, we have put together a mood board of what will be in the first kit. If you want to see more click the spoiler link.

Spoiler

Please note this isn’t exact, most of the items included in the kits have been designed exclusively for us, this is just a rough impression and all items are subject to change.

Yarn

Get ready to be pampered! Bloodlines will have two types of yarn – the first is a lovely supersoft merino 3 ply sock yarn with excellent yardage at 400m per 100gram skein. If you like the feel of Malabrigo sock yarn, you’ll love this yarn.

The second is the exclusive and new Socktopus Sock Yarn made and handdyed in the UK just for you. The Socktopus Sock Yarn is a super high twist 3 ply superwash organic merino sock yarn with approximately 390m per 120gram skein. If you like Colinette Jitterbug or STR, you’ll be in heaven! It has the wonderful tight twist, but the Socktopus Sock Yarn is a little more lightweight and with a mite more yardage per skein for those with generous feet.
