Sock Club Stash

Posted in Knitting, Sock Club, Socks, Stash tagged , , , at 6:50 pm by Jennie

More stash love for ya on yet another fantastic Monday.

I’ve been a bit behind on posting my goodies from the sock clubs I’ve luckily been able to join. Here’s the first shipment of the Wool Girl Sock Club. I like it! Very pretty shades of blues, greens and purples. It’s a sport weight, so I don’t know what I’m gonna be doing with it. I may knit the pattern, but then again who knows, it’ll probably be in the stash queue for some time, hehe.

Wool Girl Sock Club Miss Babs - Waterfall
The yarn is really squishy.

Next, September’s Yarn Pirate Booty
It’s a Merino/Tencel blend and wow, this stuff is super soft and shiny. I’m really glad I joined this club. The colors may not be what I’d normally go for but this club has exposed me to a lot of different types of yarn blends/bases that are just amazing.

And last but not least, I do have to knitting to show. Yippee. And just in time for Socktoberfest 2007. I’ve already cast on its mate.

    Cute! That pattern suits the colors really well. Now if I could only get my mom to mail me my copy of that book already…

    I agree with the no sportweight for socks. That yarn is beautiful, though.

    Lot of people have been selling off that edition of the Yarn Pirate club…interesting colors, just not for everyone, I suppose.

    That is some fun sock yarn 🙂 I like the first one especially! Now that I’ve joined the legions of sock knitters, I’m at a loss – I have no sock yarn! I think I’ll be cool for a bit, but then I’m a bit worried.
    Your waving lace sock is great!!

    Can you finish two pairs of socks every month? Or are you stockpiling ;o)?
