... and we're live for May!

On the very last day of May we've put the pdf's up. Phew!  (Isn't there a last day of May poem?) hmmm.... 

Remember, to access your pdf's, you have to login first using your sock club log in username and passwrod. This is not the one for the Blue Moon website. They are two different systems.

We are doing the shipping on Monday. Sorry for the delay we hit a slight snag that delayed our process a few days. In the mean time if you want to look at what is coming your way they are right there for your viewing and downloading pleasure. 

If you like to be surprised and do not want to see anything until you have your yarn in your hands,then easy peasy, you can wait and not peak, until you get your yarn. I know... that's the hard part. 

I hope you all have a lovely late spring weekend. 

PS: If you need anything (sock club wise) please do ask us:

A challenge

Good Morning NSK's!

I am sure most of you are aware of the Tour de Sock but just in case you are not I thought I would give it a shout out here. I think it's such crazy cool fun we are one of their sponsors this year. It's a competition!  And... there are teams! And... it benefits Doctors without Borders. What more could a sock knitter want, right?

There are challenges and points and I have seen at least one of these socks and it's going to all kinds of fun!

The last day for sign ups is May 29th. So if you feel the need to test your mad sock knitting skills and like a good fun race this might be for you.

I am sure it is! After all you are Notorious Sock Knitters. I've been testing and chalenging your sock knitting expertise for years now. 

Who better to knit the Tour de Sock than a NSK?! Smile

I love this

And thought you might also!

Help Cables of Wrath

Does anyone have some left over cables of wrath yarn from the November 2012 sock club yarn. I have a lovely scarf that needs a few metres of yarn to complete. I would be happy to buy it and pay the postage. Thanks for looking. Diane (Penticton BC Canada)

I'm an Idiot Tuesday...

 I posted this in the comments here: I wanted to actually post a note, to make sure no one fell through the cracks.

I made a reply to a comment error telling everyone that they Won!!  I am sorry this is not true. Most of you have guessed that there was some kind of error and have been understanding, kind and ammused. Thannks for that!

So... basically, if you were notitfed this morning that you were a winner for the March HOPE contest and you in fact did not enter that contest then I am sorry you did not win anything.


Walking away from the computer now!

A story...

The following showed up in my inbox a few weeks ago. (Sorry, it took me a bit to get it so it would fit here.)

Patty said I could share it with you, which is awesome, since I know, you'll love it as much as I do.The inspiration part has to be my favorite part.

It is beyond charming. I am very honored by such an artist.  Thank you Patty for sharing your oh, so talented and clever son Brennon, with us!

I think Brennon might need his own colorway and maybe a pair of socks knit out of it!


Hi Tina,

My son was illustrating  a story for his younger brother as his brother was narrating it to him.  Hmmm I thought why not do ours. So I told him a short story and he drew it.  My only input was showing him the Ravelry sight and the rest was all him!

Hope you enjoy it.  I am sending you the hard copy but he insisted I send it to you ASAP,  So here I am at work where I can use the scanner to send it.  Please let me know what you think so I can let him know.


PS. my son is 10 yrs old


Technical Help----

I just joined two weeks ago. The first yarn arrived. Gorgeous.
My dilemma. Gauge: 31sts to 4 inches.
I am currently knitting on 000. And my gauge is 26st. to 4 inches. My shoe size is 9. Could not even knit the smaller sock as that gauge is 28 stitches to 4 inches.

The newest yarn has an even more tiny gauge of 34sts to 4 inches.

Any ideas. I am a loose knitter, but never have I had to go down 3 needle sizes and still not meet the gauge.

Anyone else in love with the yarn but can't knit small enough, or am I the only one?


Thanks for any help. Knitting on toothpicks?

Love March's color

This is such a lovely color! Will additional skeins be available to purchase at some point?

Help with Cast on March

The only type of provisional cast on I have done is with a crochet chain. I don't think that is the correct way to start the March socks. I checked You Tube and found another way.i am assuming I use the non crochet method. Does the color of the waste yarn matters--since later it says to knit 2 together.
