Happy New Year!!!

Wow just looked at the daye of my last post here and it has been awhile. So much has happened!

Goodness! I have stopped posting a lot here because I am not sure anyone reads it. I know a few of you do like Sarah, Cristi and Hazel so my apologies, dear ones. One of my New Year resolutions is to be better about posting here and RAV (don't faint).

In my defense I will say that after a 10 hour day of dyeing and running things the easiest social media sharing for me is Instagram. A quick pic and a blurb and bam!! And you all know how I LOVE to take pictures. I take them ALL the time.

Anyway I hope everyone had a great holiday! We had a white Christmas so I was pretty stoked about that! All my kids were here and my sone and I built a fire in the fire pit in the snow at night on Christamas Eve which seemed seriously magical!!

I am very excited about our magical year of sock knitting. I have made most of the colorways for the year and OMG!!! I so wish I could show you. So stoked!!

As most of you know sign ups are LIVE so if you have not already signed up for our magical year now is a good time!

I am ready to start our first game are you??

Recently I had to match sock club colorways with the months and years and patterns they were with.

I know... I did not do very well and had to resort to the dyer's notes and patterns.

Yeah it was not one of my proudest moments.

So here's the game

I am going to list a whole bunch of colorway names and you need to identify the sock club year they were a part of, the month, and the pattern/desginer name. Bonus points for the theme if there was one.

Okay here is your list of colorways:

Portland Plaid  *  Electric Koolaid Acid Test  *   Titania  *   Super Hero Blues 

Bella Coola  *  Cables of Wrath  *  Dragon Dance  *  Feeling Groovy 

Gran's Kitchen  *  Flower Power  *   Honey Cock-A   *  Mad as a March Hare

Maia   *   Pacific Crest Trail  *  Pink Granite  *   Rainforest Jasper  *  Tidepooling

Monsoon  * Wavelength  * Winter Jewel  * Lucky Number Seven  * Mustang Sally

Chaos  *  Acorny  *  Monsoon  *  Pepe le Plume   *  Bread and Butterflies 

Starry Starry Night  *  Secrets   *  Cherry Bomb  *  Fairgrounds

Okay that is probably enough.

The 1st person to get all of the pieces right wins 40% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

The 2nd person to get all of the pieces right wins 25% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

The 3rd person to get all of the pieces right wins 15% discount code good for a 2 time use during 2018

Please email your response to

You have until January 31st to submit your entries.

Yes, you have to be a 2018 RSC memeber to play along.

Stay tuned for a spotify playlist for January!!

Any thought on magical songs?!

Have a lovely weekend my dear notorious friends!

2018 Sock Club Sign Ups

Happy Monday my notorious sock knitting friends!

I hope everyone has their yarn!! Hazel got her in record time after we finally got it out of the dye barn. Holy moly!! I think this last sets a new record for how many things can possible put in kink in the works.

Thank you so very, very much for your patience. Believe it ro not we still had people out sick last week. It's crazy!! I spent all weekend dyeing and playing catch up. Anyway...

So check out the homepage!!

We have the 2018 info up.

We are going celebrate our 13th year with all things magical!! I'm pretty excited. I have been gathering our designers for the year and working out themes and patters. I think you will be thrilled out the diverse group of deigners and how we are working with them!

Our new pattern/designer approach means we are going to get to work with one of my favorite sock designers the seriously clever Hunter Hammersen!!

If ther are any designers you would liek to see please let us know in the comments section here of email them to

As I said we are mixing things up this year on our magical mystery tour!

So why not start right out of the gate with making sign-ups available before the holidays?!


Sometime today we will be making the RSC 2018 Magical Mystery Tours Sign-ups live!!

You will be able to purchase gift certificates and also just sign-up!

I did my very best to keep the cost close to what it was or a little less. Wool prices just went up so that made it challenging and also USPS pricing is going up again.

If you have any questions or thoughts or ideas for magical themes I'd love you input! sock

Have a great day!!

September shipping

Hello my dear NSK's  guess what??

Yes, right you are. We are running a bit late. Due to some circumstances beyond our control like natural disasters where some of our nationwide team are and a very late yarn delivery.

Our goal is to put up you pdf's early this week.

And to start shipping your yarn out at the end of the week next week.

Seriously sorry for this delay!!

I popped over to take a gander on our RSC group on ravelry and noticed that a few of you have really been having a bit of a hard time.

You are most definitely in my thoughts!!! Sending all kinds of love your way.

Life has been a bit challenging here also so I do understand. I thnk maybe a lot of us are feeling this way.

Luckily we have knitting eh?!! Of course this makes me more sad over this lateness but I am no match for hurricanes and such! That much I do know! is Autumn. Which means cooler knitting and wool wearing weather.

I love this time of year! All the color and the crispmess in the air. Pumpkin Spice everyhting!!

What is your favorite aspect of Autumn?

ok off to the barn to dye!!!

Surprise!! Spread the LOVE!!

Hello my notorious sock knitting friends!

 It's a pretty intense time right now. Hurricanes, wildfires and earhquakes just to name a few challenges some of us are experiencing
I hope everyone is staying safe. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

It's a bit less smokey here. It's cooled down quite a bit which has helps immensely. We are hoping and praying with everything we have for rain to contain some of these fires that are raging here on the west coast.

As knitters we have the best stress coping tool and also way to give and spread love!

On September 15th our discount code is scheduled to move to 10%.  Usually this is the email that I send to remind you of this change so you can use it before that change happens, if you have not already.

It looks like back in July we never made the change from 20% to 15 % on the 15th.
Well ...I  can take a hint, so in the spirit of rolling with the punches, and maybe spreading a little love we are going to change things up a bit. We will change it to 15% on September 15th since we missed that one in July.
Which gives you 6 more days where it is at a 20% off before we make that change though. Yay!!!!

And... we've changed the coupon from a 1 time use for the year to a 2 time use. So what this means is even if you've already used your discount code this year you can use it again!!
So you can use it before it changes from 20% to 15% in 6 days or wait until after.

Spread the knit love my nototrious sock knitting friends!
The coupon code is on the last page January Dyer's Notes.

On a side note I would like to thank you all so very much for all of your input about next years club. My heart is so full with how much time, care and thought you all put into your responses.
 As I have said before, I have the best knitters!! You are all kinds of wonderful!!


We have been donating all year to various organizations that work towards equality and tolerance and right now we will be donating toward hurricane and fire relief and rebuilding.

Please do take care of your dear selves!!!

Stay safe and as always happy knitting!

PDF"s are up!!

Good morning!!

I just wanted to let you know before the day get's away from me with the Barn Sale that the PDF's are finally up.

You will notice that the mood board is missing.

We will add it in next week.

For some bizarre reason that I could not figure out or fathom the program I use for those just would not cooperate.

I guess it was in a mood!!!  lol

Anyway I hope you love the patterns and such!!

Have a great weekend and stay cool!

July Shipment!

Hello my lovelies,

        I just wanted to let you know that we will be shipping your yarn out next week. Because the theme this time around is General Dye Barn I might have let my creativivity fly in relationship to the colorway. It is taking us a wee bit longer to dye because of this. Also it is hot as hades here!!!  107 tomorrow. Yikes Dyeing is hot work anyway so...

You'll LOVE it!!! I love it!!!  And it all rings so true. This might be my fav so far this year and I have truly loved them all.

So a question?? The patterns are done and can go up this week do you want to see them before the yarn ships. If so please leave a comment here so I know!!!

We will also send out an email letting everyone know what is up.

Since we are not shipping until next week if anyone has an address change please email so so we can get that in the works.

Oh I  have some important news and questions for you so make sure you read this months dyer's notes!!!

Shipping software glitch!

Hey all, Just a heads up that the bulk of you will recieve your shipping notification today and then maybe a cancellation notice. Somehow the return address got changed from Blue Moon to someone else. I know. Didn't even know it was an option.

So we have to refund all the labels we printed this am and then do it all over again.

We are in the process of refunding them and then we are going to let is sit and wait for the techies to weigh in and will try this agian tomorrow morning.


I feel like this is my fault. That I jinxed us and when you read the dyer's notes you will understand!!

Also...this is a RSC first!

As the heel turns baby...

As the heel turns.
