Gumball | “Vice Versa” DK Sock Kit | 350 yds

$40.00 (CAD)

A little bit of nostalgia!  When I was a kid, a friend got a Dubble Bubble full sized bubblegum machine as a gift and did I ever covet that thing!  To have a bubblegum machine available to dispense at any time? Fantastic!

The speckles on these skeins represent all the gumball colours, a collection of all the primaries.  Created over a long speckling session where I allow each layer of speckles to sit for a good amount of time to ensure the dye has struck before adding the next colour. I use only a few select dye colours, chosen for the way they mix and create so many others!  When I return after applying the final layers of speckles, the yarn in the pan is such a colourful surprise! 😀

As of January 1, 2022 you will also receive 50% off the matching sock pattern: Vice Versa by Makenzie Alavarez of Hanks and Needles (  It’s a super fun sock pattern that allows for toe up or cuff down and supports my love of mismatched socks! (But don’t worry, you can make them match if you need to!) NOTE: Pattern information and discount code is on the sock kit label.




Each kit contains:

75% superwash merino 25% nylon, 4-ply
1x 100g/250 yds
2x 20g/50 yds

Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind.  Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
