Summer of Socks 2012: The Vancouver Edition


Porteau Cove

 This year's Summer of Socks is inspired by the landscape of Vancouver, Canada. Club members will have the choice of 3 unique colour themes that will inspire the colourways for their chosen club. Members will also have the option between two sets of yarns, the original Super Sweet Sock base or a collection of Fancy Sock bases. The club includes three installments (one skein per month for a total of three skeins) that will ship in May, June & July. Club memberships will be posted for purchase in the Sweet Fiber Shop on April 1st 2012 at 9am pst / 12 pm est.



  • Granville Island Market - bright, lively & colourful - any colour goes
  • Sea to Sky - cool, crisp & refreshing - blues, greens, browns & greys
  • Downtown Vancouver - a variety of greys paired with hints of colour
Each of the colourways will be inspired by photographs I've taken in these particular places. Above you'll find an example of May's photo inspiration for the Sea to Sky theme.
