I make most of my blankets in Stylecraft Special DK, a lovely hard wearing 100% acrylic yarn that comes in 88 colours! I also favour Stylecraft Special Chunky – this is the yarn I used to make my hexagon blanket.

My new socks are in Sirdar Heart and Sole and the flavour of the yarn is pigeon toes – love that name! Its £7.99 not £7.50 as I said, but still good value for a pair of socks.

    Hi Kathryn, I love your podcasts! please keep them coming. I wondered if you were going to make Mens Survival socks, I hope so because that’s my Christmas presents for my three sons! ….. if you do! no pressure :0)
    It is nice to know you are Yorkshire born and bred, I am from Cudworth, so not far from Pontefract, in fact the ~Yorkshire Traction bus used to come through Cudworth. I also love the cakes! I now live in Derbyshire, but I still consider myself Yorkshire …. from the coal mining villages.
    Well, I sent this email just now, but to the wrong email address …. !
