Debbie Harry with her band Blondie was one of Susan's idols when growing up, and their album Parallel Lines was rarely off her record player. Therefore it seemed only right that this inspirational album would be the source for these socks, which feature a series of vertical columns on each side. The Parallel Lines socks are knitted from the cuff down with a fun construction. They are designed to be worn with the reverse stocking stitch on the surface: to make the knitting easier, they are first worked inside out. These easy-to-knit socks feel good on the foot - and look great too.
You can now purchase our hand-dyed yarn kit to create your own pair of Parallel Lines socks which uses 100gm skein of our hand-dyed Susan Crawford Lock a fingering weight yarn, worsted spun with a high twist making it perfect for socks. The Lonk fibre used for this wonderful sock yarn is from our small flock of Lonk sheep, a breed local to North Lancashire. The wool is combined with a small amount of nylon, to create the perfect fabric for socks. The yarn shows off texture, cables and lace to great effect and the fibre combination takes colour beautifully.
Parallel Lines socks are shown here in a choice of three different colourways; Campbell
(blue) or Le Ferre
