I thought it'd be useful to create a few gallieries of projects made with specific yarns; so here I am starting with Tempo 4ply which is our proper sock yarn. It is superwash wool blended with nylon, and let me tell you, it takes a LOT of abuse.  It's also the softest version of this traditional blend that I've ever found (which is why I use it, obvs!).

Thankyou to everyone who gave me permission to use their photos and link to their projects!

I may as well start with what I've made using it, and some of you may recognise my two most recent makes.

Firstly, Boxy by Joji Locatelli, in colourway Woodland (Ravelry project page HERE).

 

Spindrift by Helen Stewart in colourway Cromer Pier (Ravelry project page HERE):

 And Daydreamer Socks by me in an old colourway probably closest to Harbour these days (and Periwinkle for the contrast); (Ravelry project page HERE)

Close To You by Justyna Lorkowska, knitted by BelowWoldsSkies in colourway Cromer Pier (Ravelry project page HERE)
