The theme for 2020 sock box is Children's popular story books. My children and now their children love either having stories read to them or reading themselves. There are so many amazing children's books around its going to be so hard to decide which ones to pick. This months book choice is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang ,I hope you like the choice. Although we always think of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a popular Movie the book was written before the Movie.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: The Magical Car is a children's novel written by Ian Fleming for his son Caspar, with illustrations by John Burningham. It was initially published in three volumes, the first of which was released on 22 October 1964 by Jonathan Cape in London.
The yarn is hand hand painted using environmentally friendly dyes , And is sourced from either the UK or South America.
The dye Process: We use non-toxic acid dyes .The dye process has very little waste , and all of the dyes are exhausted into yarns before any water is poured away. I use food grade citric acid as setting agent, and rinse with water, to maintain a low impact on the environment. i take care to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
Each box will contain a skein of hand dyed fingering weight yarn suitable for making socks and high quality gifts to match the theme. The boxes will be mailed by the middle of August to allow for gifts to be made by other crafters.
