Gearing Up for the Hulst Socks KAL

On your mark! The Hulst Socks KAL starts a week from today. We have great prizes - yarn from Periwinkle Sheep, buttons from Katrinkles, and a project/tote bag made by @missouritrouble. Hope to see you! @katrinkles_knitting_jewelry @periwinklesheep #bluepe

Only a few days until the Hulst Socks KAL starts! Have you got your yarn and pattern? 


The discount on the pattern in my Ravelry store continues through Saturday, June 20. Use the coupon code HULSTKAL to receive $1.00 off.

This KAL is a celebration of both summer sock knitting and summer produce, farmers markets, and CSAs. Already some great recipes have been shared—like a watermelon-cucumber cooler called Summer in a Glass. Find it right here. (Gin is entirely optional, and I can't vouch for how it might affect your sock knitting.)

We have some great prizes, too—free patterns, a lovely project bag, buttons—and a skein of the yarn I knit the sample in, Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors in the Atlantic colorway.

Look what I brought home after having coffee with @periwinklesheep 🐏 Can't wait to design some socks with it! #bluepeninsula #periwinklesheep #knit #knitsocks #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram

I've cast on a second pair, this time using Into the Whirled Gloucester Sock in a chocolately color called Blackthorn. The dark color is a little hard to photograph, but so far the yarn is working really well with this pattern.

Making a pair of Hulst just for me with Into the Whirled Gloucester Sock from Rhinebeck - and feeling like l ought to have chocolate for lunch  🍫🍫🍫 #bluepeninsula #knit #knitsocks #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram

Hope to see in you in the KAL! It starts Sunday, but you can join whenever you like.

P.S. A few people have asked about the project bag I'm using for these socks. I sewed it using a Dropcloth Sampler by Rebecca Ringquist. She's got lots of cheerful embroidery samplers in her Etsy shop.
