EXTRA NOTE: several customers have asked if this offer means free postage to the USA. No — this offer of discount postage to the overseas means that I am waiving the ADDITIONAL postage charges to overseas customers. This can range from $7.05 – $12.00 postage for 1 copy of the mag per order. I’ve checked — my pricing is very close to the USA shop price — AND includes the free knitting needles (seriously!) which overseas customers will NOT get with their shop copies.

Items marked for free shipping on our webshop are clearly marked as free ship items. End of additional note.

This Procrastination sock features several different colour techniques using leftover hand-painted sock yarn. Of course this version features SIOz sock yarns — fyi: there are a coupla hanks left of the Happy Little Mitey Sock used in the magazine version. :-).

Also in Issue 23 — the Micro Aran Sock — cables that look nice on a small, sock scale. These socks were knitted in a natural coloured Aussie sheepwool, but any 4ply/fingering weight yarn will suffice. If you haven’t any luck finding all natural, untreated 4ply sock yarn near you, email melissa@strandedinoz.com and I’ll organise some to be wound off for you from my workshop.

I’ve included the heel shot above to give you a sense of one of the design features, a nicely-fitting afterthought heel — roomy enough to fit most feet — that makes the most of the small cables running down the sides of the sock.
