It's the last week of March and you know what that means? All the PDFs are up and ready for perusal and downloading.  Team Blue Moon shipped all the Canadian ( countdown begins Hazel) and International packages on Monday. The domestic ones will be out by end of day Thursday! 

Theres a little guessing game on the backs of the tags this go around. First knitter to get their package, guess the correct missing word and respond here gets a yarny prize.

As always if you have questions or issues please let us know! 

Happy knitting!!

March Hint #1

address changes please

If you have any address changes that you need our help with before we ship next week please do email them to Paula.



having trouble with the gusset

Hello again

Is anyone else having trouble with the gusset and finding blog posts? Every time I sign in, I can post a blog entry, but still have a hell of a time finding where people posted recently, especially regarding these socks.

The forum only directs me to Camp Jabberwocky and those posts are old.

Anyway, I am NOT an experienced sock knitter, and I cannot tell where I am supposed to be on this pattern at the gusset...the purls seem counterintuitive and I'm tired of ripping out, so have just reverted to a basic sock pattern so I know where I am.

If I didn't like your yarn so much, I'd be disappointed. Looking forward to the next shipment and hope the experience improves. Your customer service has been great in telling me what the different pieces of the website are. I just think what I'm experiencing here with what I want to see and how to get there are different?

I'm still confused.
Thanks for your help,

What hue are you? Reveal Skein #1

 I got Katharine's permission to put her skein here for all to see. If you remember, her entry was about how her family makes up who she is, so that was what she wrote about. This skein is what I came up with based on her story. She loves it and I am thrilled. I am waitng to hear how Karyn feels about hers and I am tweaking Contessa's which turned out to be the hardest. 



Thank you Katharine for this opportunity to make you into a skein of yarn. Smile

mine has arrived!

Thank you RSC! My parcel arrived downunder safely, loved the colours and especially the wee badge stating I am a Sock Knitter.
Is this an addiction? Without fail I cannot wait to finish the second sock so that I can begin another pair.
Here's to it and to you.

Where is everyone/errata

I am a first year member and seem to be totally incapable when navigating this site. Where are the blog entries and I seem to recall Paula mentioning errata of the sock pattern? Can't find that either. I'm lost. Can you all help me out?
I am enjoying knitting these socks.
Best wishes,

Still Waiting!

I'm still waiting too!! With all the snow we got yesterday in Toronto I need my Rockin' Sock Club fix!!

Stanton Shawlette ERRATA


 It looks like we have a bit of errata in the Stanton Shawl pattern. We are in the process of fixing it and then we'll be putting up a new pdf with the correction in it.

 I'm very sorry!! Errata happens it just does. That said I really do not like starting the year with one.

Our humble apologies to you, my dear NSK's and to Shannon.


UPDATE: Ok, so... here's the skinny. First of all, the pattern we all have now that we shipped out, does in fact work. So if you are almost done don't panic. The error is on Row 9 of the lace part of the pattern and changes the construction of the hole a bit. It still makes a lovely shawlette.  That said, it is not the intended design of Shannon's that made this knitters heart go pitter pat and we intended you all to have.

Below is the new key and chart and line by line for the gone awry Row 9. Tomorrow when my techies are working we'll chagne the pdf to reflect this correction.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. I don't like it (really don't) but we are human and we make mistakes so Errata happens.  I'm seriously sorry to start the year this way!

The Stanton Shawl Pattern pdf has been changed to the corrected  one.


On page 3 of the pattern, Row 9 should be revised to read: * K1, insert right-hand needle under strand 2 rows below and knit strand together with next st, k1, k2tog, yo, k1; repeat from * to end.
