Knotty by Nature Fibre Arts (or, My Socks Grow Funky)


I was admiring my socks (and how they feel in Crocs… oh, the cushiness…) and I was thinking perhaps I had enjoyed them quite enough and they were due for a wash.

This got me thinking ‘what the hell was in that yarn anyway?’ which led sadly to ‘I haven’t a clue’.


I bought the yarn from a lovely shop in Victoria BC, hand-dyed by the owner themselves. The store was so fun, colourful and full of fibre goodness that I had to share a few pics.





The owner, winding up the mystery yarn I had just bought. I like how he makes winding yarn look like a cavalier and swashbuckling thing to do.

The socks will be hand washed with my other knitted items to be on the safe side, I can’t bear to lose them now!




They’re called ‘Knotty by Nature’ and they’re right in downtown Victoria. Definitely look them up if you’re in town, and while you’re at it, ask about my socks 😉
