Designed in two coordinating colourways of Ester, the SpaceCadet's hardworking sock yarn, the Sidekick is a fab new pattern by Kate Atherley for a pair of warm winter boot socks that employs a clever trick tame variegated yarn into something more tweedy.  And to celebrate Kate's design, we're offering these sweet kits for Sidekick in three beautiful colour choices:  the original bold blue, classic grey, or luscious green.  Which will you choose?

At SpaceCadet, we passionately believe that knitting and crocheting make people happier deep down inside and that nothing does that more than working with gorgeous, vibrant yarn. For us, dyeing is a cosmic adventure -- a wonderful process of mixing each shade by hand from primaries and seeing where the colour takes us. The result is yarn that is as exciting for you as it is for us. Come with us and explore the farthest reaches of SpaceCadet colour!

Very Important Stuff: All hand-dyed yarns can vary between and within dyelots and their true beauty is the individuality in every skein. Please be sure to order enough yarn for your project, to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins. If you'd prefer to reduce any variation in your project, we recommend alternating skeins every two rows in your project. Please remember that our photos are as accurate as possible, but the colours you see also depend on your computer monitor's settings. Where there are multiple skeins pictured, each is sold separately.
