inspired

welcome to my personal sock club 2009!



inspired by the lovely RoseRed, I have established my own sock club '09, using yarns from my stash.

What better way to enjoy your stash that making up your very o
wn club, and this way you're virtually guaranteed of liking each shipment!

The idea is to pair up your yarn with a pattern, pop it in a bag together, and "ship" it to yourself at designated intervals. I'm aiming for a shipment every 6 weeks, which should carry me nicely through the year.

I've paired up the yarn & patterns already, but I'm keeping the matches under wraps until each one "arrives".


The first one, however, will be my Noro, in a simple toe-up rib pattern - nice and vanilla, perfect for these long hot days we're having :)

I'll never get used to this southern/northern hemisphere phenomenon. You're talking about hot weather, and I'm looking out the window at snow!

That sock club idea is great!

I love this idea! I've joined my first 'actual' sock club this year, but I have no idea how it will turn out...
