We are at that point in the winter season when we are all starting to crave a little colour. Everything outside is… grey. So while we stay cozy in our homes with our knitting, why not experience colour in the very best way possible? With our knitting, of course! At Estelle, we can think of no better yarn to bring a little vibrant colour into your life, than with Lang’s Mille Colori Socks and Lace.
Lang initially introduced Mille Colori as a heavy aran/ light chunky weight several years ago. People went berserk (in the very best way possible) knitting scarves out of it. They were hooked on the bright, cheerful shades, and self striping quality of the yarn. The popularity of the yarn was so huge, that Lang decided to introduce the same yarn, but in some different weights. And by now… they have almost covered the entire range of popular yarn gauges!
Since a lot of us are taking a break from ‘quick knits’, now that the holiday season is behind us, it is nice to be able to turn our attention to some projects that might require a little more time and focus.
For this reason, we thought we would share with you the Socks and Lace version of Mille Colori. Of course… your knitting of this yarn is not limited to socks and lace… but either of these types of knitting would be beautiful!
With patterns for ‘sock weight’ yarn popping up everywhere, your options are endless. Baby knitting, hats, cowls, gloves, heck… make yourself a sweater, if you think you have it in you!
Make sure that you head on over to Ravelry to check out all of the other incredibly inspiring projects that knitters have made with this beautiful yarn.
But wait… There’s more! This yarn is also available with a bit of sparkle tossed into the mix! Who doesn’t love a little bit of bling!?!?!? Lang’s Mille Colori Socks and Lace Luxe is simply irresistible. Dress it up, or dress it down… it’s all up to you. Whether sparkle is your thing, or not… you will have a hard time resisting this yarn. Guaranteed.
Both the sparkly version, and the not-so-sparkly version come in an outstanding range of colour options. Pictured below is just a taste of what there is.

Last, but not least! Do tell us what it is you have made/plan to make with this yarn. We would love to know! There is simply no such thing as ‘too much inspiration’.
Happy (colourful!) knitting everyone!
