Hello Friends!!

Do you have skeins of yarn that you'd like to have knit up so you can finish them into socks?

Are you an Indie Dyer that needs samples for your shop?

Do you have some gift knitting that you need to get done but don't have time to knit the entire sock??

This service is perfect for you then!! You send me yarn you have in your stash, and I will crank it into tubes with my Circular Sock Machine and send them back to you to finish into socks! 

OPTIONS:

Choose "One Long Tube" If you only want the yarn to be cranked into one tube. Leftovers are ok upon request :)

Choose "Separated tubes" if you want two separate tubes.  For example if you send 2 balls of 50 gram Felici yarn, that counts as one skein (total 100 grams) but since its two balls, it will be separate tubes. Or if you have a 100 g skein and you want it knit into two tubes vs one long tube so you don't have to separate it.

-------

Let's talk gauge!!! I have a 64 stitch cylinder and a 72 stitch cylinder so you can choose based on what you already knit with, or whatever is closest to it. Not sure? That's ok.  Just let me know what you typically cast on (the number of stitches) and what your gauge is, meaning how many stitches you get per inch in your knitting. I will do my very best to get as close to that as I can. 

Note: I measure BEFORE washing/blocking for the below results.

For fingering weight yarn that is 80/20 or 75/25 using 64 stitches, the smallest circumference I can obtain is 9 stitches per inch which calculates to be a 7.11" circumference sock.

For the same type of yarns using 72 stitches the smallest circumference I can obtain is also 9 stitches per inch for an 8" circumference.

9 stitches per inch is the highest number of stitches I can get using either 64 or 72.

This will depend on the sock yarn, but I've found that this is typical on most fingering weight yarns.

  • This listing is for me to knit yarn that you already own.
  • You will send the skeins to me to be knit into a sock tube. 
  • You can choose the amount you want knit. 
  • I can knit up the entire skein into a tube.  I can knit the skein into two halves with equal yardage for each sock tube.  I can knit one tube with the amount (in grams) that you want left over. However you want it worked out, I can work with you. 
  • Nothing is kept by me.  It will all go back to you.

What this means is that if you have skein(s) of yarn that you would like knit up into a Sock Tube, you would purchase this listing for the number of skeins you would like knit up and complete check out.  I will then reach out to you using the email address you've provided to give you my address and to confirm how you want it knit up.  Then all you have to do is mail the yarn to me.  I will be sure to have it back in the mail approximately by the 10th to 14th business day (Monday - Friday) after receipt.  If this falls on a Sunday or a mail holiday, it will be mailed the next available mailing day. This timeframe may increase during busy times, especially when there is a sale or promotion. 

Want to buy yarn directly from a shop (or my shop!!) and save on shipping it to me to knit up for you?  No problem!! Purchase this listing for the number of skeins you are buying and leave a note stating you are purchasing directly from a shop.  I will then email you with my address.  Just have the yarn sent to me.  Everything else will be the same.  I will contact you once received and ship it back to you with in 7 business days!

Included in this purchase is my Guide For Separating a Knit Tube For Socks!!
