Après-Anything Sock Kit
Quick luxury: this soft, special yarn is half royal alpaca, half merino—enough to make a pair of Ann Budd’s Après-Anything Socks, size small or medium. The Putty and Cranberry colorway includes an extra skein so you can make large socks for the big-footed person in your life.

We are frankly a little sorry to be doing this to you. This dreamy yarn is the knitting equivalent of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Almonds. For the Après-Anything Socks, we searched high and low for the yarn that would make these socks wholly impractical for daily life. In 50% Royal Alpaca/50% merino wool, these quick-knit socks are destined to be your favorite nonverbal way to say, “I’m relaxing now, people.”
This kit does not include a pattern. Ann Budd’s Après-Anything Socks pattern appears in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 2: Fair Isle. Order your copy here. Available in both digital and print versions.
