Errata: Transition Point sock

Eagle-eyed Notorious Sock Knitter Becki notice an error in the Transition Point sock pattern from May's shipment.

Disregard Rnd1 of the Foot Pattern as written and charted.

By starting at Rnd 2, you'll continue the moss stitch texture as established on the leg.

After you turn the heel, begin the gusset instructions working at Rnd 2 after you place the marker (page 9-10). Continue working the Foot Pattern instructions from here.

Enjoy the rest of this super Star pattern!

The long and the short of it

Notice anything different about the skein of STR Lightweight that came with the May shipment?

Great color? As always.

100% superwash merino? Plied tight, just how we like it.

Yardage? Weight? Wait… stop the stitches!

Yup. You're reading the label correctly. This skein is approximately 405 yards / 370 meters and weighs in at a hefty 5.5 ounces /155 grams. The typical STR Lightweight skein is 360yds / 329m and 4.5oz / 127g. That's more yarn than you bargained for, eh?

For those who are interested in purchasing more of the Maia colourway in STR Lightweight, we're selling it in this larger skein size for $24.50. This way, you can purchase enough yarn for either of May's two incredible patterns. Keep in mind, Maia is only availble for purchase for 2011 RSC members.

As a larger-footed fella, I am thrilled by this. Are you?

MAY DAY! MAY DAY!

It's already 24 days past May Day and we haven't posted any clues about the next shipment.

Our clue machine got a little dizzy while dancing around the May pole. Everything seems to be working fine now...

Twinkle, twinkle, little ???
