Sock Yarn and Chocs

What have chocolates got to do with yarn? Well, Carrie at Peak District Yarns has started a yarn club with a difference: you get sock yarn and amazing artisan chocolates! 

The first packages for the Sock Yarn and Chocs club went out at the end of April, and Carrie chose me as the featured designer. Look how good my Three Sirens Socks look in the club yarn! Love this colourway, you can buy it now at Peak District Yarns via the ‘I hate surprises’ page. 

I was lucky enough to get to sample the chocolates, hand made in the Peak District by Yohan’s Chocolate Shop, and they were truly scrumptious (they didn’t last long!).

If Sock Yarn and Chocs sounds like your sort of thing, you can sign up via Peak District Yarns; you can sign up for a one off box, or three boxes, or six. Boxes are sent out every other month. This round of sign-ups closes on June 16th 2021, subject to availability.

If you find yourself in the Peak District, Carrie has a studio and shop where you can go and squish the yarn. Carrie also runs a full timetable of yarn-related workshops, where you can try your hand at yarn dyeing, sock knitting or needle felting.

Carrie’s is also one of the stops on the Peak District Yarn Trail, a self-guided tour round some of the finest yarn shops in the Peak District, a perfect weekend plan for knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers and fibre artists. The area is also perfect for walking, and you could even add a visit to Chatsworth, a truly impressive stately home in the heart of the Peak District.
