The yarn is Amherst by Webs (worsted weight) in the natural color. It's the same yarn I did the Brooklyn Tween Guernsey shawl in.
My sock blockers are made by Burning Impressions, a shop on Etsy. She customizes each set and will burn anything you want into the sock blocker including names. Nice nice lady and you'll be supporting a small business owner and artist.
These are going to my veterinarian who saved my dog's life last week. My dog is only 10 lbs. and a porcupine attacked her last week. One of the quills punctured her lung. Emergency surgery and a lot of medications but she'll be okay :). Porcupine's days are numbered. Making a pair of gauntlets for the technician too. Pictures to follow soon.
