We are thrilled to welcome Gloria of Trailing Clouds as a new sponsor for this year's GLYC. If you haven't seen Gloria's yarns yet, click right on over to her website now. Her yarns are bright, playful and seriously self-striping!!! Our favourite is (of course) the Mind the Gap colourway (pictured above), which includes all the colours of the London Underground Tube map.
We discovered this yarn in January, and lurked around for a shop update until we got our hot little hands on some. Alli got the sock yarn, which is in the process of being made up into gorgeous stripy Underground socks. Rachel was so excited that she managed to get the sport weight instead of the sock yarn, but is relishing the idea of Underground-inspired fingerless mitts this winter.
Gloria has very kindly donated one skein of "Mind the Gap" sock yarn for an after-party door prize, so that one of you Yarn Crawlers can work up your own pair of London-inspired socks. There's even a London Gap sock pattern for the yarn, if you're so inclined.
Huge thanks to Trailing Clouds for supporting this year's Great London Yarn Crawl. It's not long now til we see you all on the roads - are you ready?
