The Rockin' Sock Club® Where...
our knitters are notorious…
our yarn is tightly twisted…
our stitches are true and…
our Socks seriously Rock!

 Rockin’ Sock Club 2019

Ground Control to Major Skein
Ground Control to Major Skein
Grab your needles and put your stocking cap on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to Major Skein (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing count down (Five), yarn is wound (Four)
(Three, two) Casting on (One) and may knit force (Blastoff) be with you

This is ground control to Major Skein - you've really made the grade
And the knitters want to know whose socks you wear
Now it's time to leave the forum if you dare

This is Major Skein to Ground Control: I'm sitting on the floor
And I'm knitting in a most peculiar way
And the stitches look very different today
Here am I sitting in a swinging chair far away from the world
Planet YARN is blue and my gauge is looking true ...

Though I'm past one hundred thousand yards, I'm feeling very still
And I think my space-swatch knows which way to go
Tell my knit group I miss them very much … (They  know!)
Ground Control to Major Skein, your charts are askew, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Skein?
Can you hear me, Major Skein?
Can you hear me, Major Skein?
Can you

"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Rockin' Sock Club. Its fouteen-year mission: to explore strange new colorful worlds. To seek out new stitches and new patterns... To boldly go where no sock knitter has gone before!"

Hop aboard our stitchin' starship, Notorious Sock Knitters, and we'll explore the final frontier that is Space and all of its vast and varied celestial wonders!

Cosmos ~ Mercury ~ Stars ~ Black Hole ~ Milky Way ~ Dark Matter ~ Nebulae ~ Moons

I’ll be your Captain on this stitchin’ voyage, along with our stellar crew; first officer akabini (Karen Alfke), our chief engineer unapologeticknitter (Meaghan Schmaltz), communications officer tracieknits (Tracie Millar (Grocery Girl), navigator turtlegirl (Cristi Payne), officer lfahlin (Laura Staker) and a few other surprise crew members!

Our colorway and pattern inspiration will come from the cosmos that we are such a small part of, along with some science fiction genre goodness like Star Trek, Star Wars, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Red Dwarf, Space Balls to name a few!! Seriously the sky is the limit, like literally!

Who knows… with a crew like this one maybe we’ll knit our very own galaxy! I’m gonna tell you right now I am so going to want a Blue Moon Purl Nebula!!

And of course, we will expand all of our knit and color horizons... as we do. Except this time we'll be skyrocketing them into the universe with a special ~ color as it pertains to sock knitting patterns ~ section of the dyer’s notes brought to you by your Captain and her first officer!

We started our journey as the first and only Sock Club and grew to be the largest sock knitting club of our kind, and 14 stellar years later we are still going strong, despite the obstacles life throws our way! And all of because of you, our lovely, loyal and the very best sock knitters in our galaxy at least ~ Notorious Sock Knitters!! Oh!!! This year we get to be Notorious Sock Knitting Space Cadets!
