Giddy Yarns "In the Wild"

Helen Giddens

I’ve recently started to see my yarn popping up around the internet, mostly on Instagram, which is very exciting. Gorgeous baby cardi knit in my Wisteria colourway (I was granted permission to share this image by the maker). One place it popped up which I thought I’d share with you is “The Happy Knitting Podcast”. I’ve watched Julia’s podcast for a while now and very much enjoyed it so I was very excited when she ordered some yarn from me recently.

This should give you enough yarn to make a pair of socks for up to a UK size 7 foot (and maybe bigger). These are Rainbow drops and Sunken Treasure. Rainbow drops is inspired by the UK sweet of the same name,...
