Let's Rock Some Socks!

Dec 19, 2012

    
One of the beautiful patterns in Blue Moon Fiber Arts' Rockin' Sock Club
There are so many fabulous sock yarns out there to choose from; it's an embarrassment of sock knitting riches! Blue Moon Fiber Arts' Socks that Rock is one of the top-tier sock yarns for me. The colors are luscious, especially in my favorite group, the Raven Clan. It's full of unique versions of my preferred shades of dull, drab, and dreary.

That's why I'm so excited to let you know that The Rockin' Sock Club® is back for its eighth year. In 2012, they added an accessory design along with the usual sock design, and it was a rousing success. This year's emphasis for the accessory patterns is shoulder and neck-related designs—shawls, scarves, and cowls! So much fun.

The 2013 Rockin' Sock Club patterns are being designed by sock stars of the knitting world: Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (The Yarn Harlot), Star Athena, Janel Laidman, and more!

Every other month, a club kit is delivered to your door. It includes:

  • 400-yard skeins of Socks that Rock® lightweight or medium weight yarn in a unique club colorway
  • "Dyer's Notes" explaining each shipment's inspiration
  • Notorious Sock Knitter gear, such as mini skeins, buttons, and other fun trinklets
  • A 15% off coupon, good until December 1, 2013
  • Two patterns developed by two different designers for color, form, and function. We promise one will be a sock, the other—who knows? Both the patterns and colorways will not be available to the general public for a full year after you receive it.
  • PDF-only option or PDF + print options
  • A blog and forum for sharing and support.

So check out the Rockin' Sock Club®. It's the perfect Christmas gift for a knitter you love, or for yourself!

Cheers,

I looked at this with interest but noted immediately that the wool is 100% merino.  I wear my hand-knit socks every day and have found that those without 20 - 25% nylon or some other synthetic do not hold up for me - within 10 wearings I'm darning either the heel or sole (right below the heel turn).   I have vowed to stick with sock yarn with strengthening content.  Apparently others don't have this problem!?

Hi, I was interested in the club, but price too high for retired couple budget.  Plus If you need extra yarn for larger feet- man's 12 or woman's 10 in the kit how to let them know ahead and does price go higher?  Love Knitting Daily  and Int. Knits. dd

I love the idea of the sock club, but the price is a little steep for my budget. I guess I am in the thrifty knitter category. But, that doesn't mean I want to knit with craft store yarns. Finding that balance is really key for me.

Yikes~!  over $40 per pair of socks. Guess I'll have to stick to my own resources.  Love the idea, though.

I just knit my first pair of socks this year!  They were for my boyfriend for his birthday.  I enjoyed it so much that I have now joined this sock club!  I think this will be a lot of fun!

I often wonder how I would do with one of these sock clubs where you get a skein every month in the mail. Would I feel overwhelmed? Overjoyed? Would I try to do something else besides socks with the yarn? I'm a bit rebellious that way. Although I've participated nicely in a knit-along at Ravelry. And I conformed. I made a sweater nearly exactly like the one on the pattern cover. Ha ha! Right down the color!!!
