I am so in awe of Regia Pairfect sock yarn. Seriously, it is so cool! You follow the directions on the ball band to make—you guessed it—a pair of patterned or striped socks that match perfectly! Check it out:
That bit of yellow yarn is what makes the magic happen; you start knitting right where the yellow yarn ends. You'll find another yellow section halfway through the ball, and you start knitting your second sock just after that section ends. (You'll be done with your first sock by then—there's plenty of yarn for each sock, regardless of the size you knit.)
Pairfect is great for different types of sock patterns, too, as you can see above—Akasha used it for her Family Reunion socks. As long as you start each sock at the end of the yellow portion of yarn, you get a matched pair.
I've heard Pairfect works toe-up or top-down, so you can use your favorite pattern.
We have several colors of in stock, including the three shown in the photo above, so get yourself a ball and cast on the Pairfect pair!
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home. Get your knit decor on with six of my favorite patterns from Alpaca Direct!
Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
