thank you for the wonderful welcome to the Rockin' Sock Club and for now including overseas members. Am sure knitting socks falls into the addiction basket. No sooner has one pair been finished than another just has to be started. The toughest part is choosing which yarn to use next. Are there any other members in New Zealand?
Greetings to all

January 2013

I couldn't wait to check out the pattern. I love them both and will definitely make both. What a great way way to start the year!

We're SHIPPING!!!!

It's shipping day! We're here... we're here.. We're finally here!!  We're really excited can you tell!

Are you excited?

Usually I'm an all excited nutty goodness on the inside, but the outisde, is a thick layer of "what if no one likes it?" not so creamy chocolate happiness.  I think this just might be the very first time ever my insides match my outside.  Progress!

We're about (in seconds) to send you all an email on the whole very simple pdf retrieval process.  They are here on the website right now. I know right? Totally should have had a, Where's the pdf's?, game.

So... I wasn't quite sure when to put these up. I decided to put them up on the day we ship since everyone gets their packages at a different time. You can choose to look now or you can wait until your yarn arrives. In my perfect kind a silly world we schedule a time and all look together but.. that's just silly.

Anyway, here's the skinny on how it works. We tried to make it as simple as possible. If we've missed something please do let us know..

Here's how it works:

In order to access your PDFs, go to the RSC site and sign in, using your Rockin' Sock Club username and password. (Please note: this is the Rockin' Sock Club sign in, not the Blue Moon one - they are separate sites.) You can access the site through the Blue Moon website or right here.
Once you are in, you'll see the RSC 2013 link in the top navigation bar. Hover over it and a "PDFs" drop down menu will appear. Click on that and there will be all of your PDFs for this shipment.

We'll list each shipment by the month and year of that shipment. You can open your PDFs (and print them if you so desire) whenever you like. You can do it as soon as they are up (like now) or you can wait until your yarn arrives in a few days. Up to you!

As always if you have any problems or questions please do contact us:

Remember about spoilers! We all have our own personal preference on when we want to see everything.

I think that covers everything.

I'm going to go hold Paula's hand. The first shipment makes her nervous.


SUPER IMPORTANT TIPS In order to make the pdf drop down appear you have to be logged in. If it does not appear it means you are not logged in. On main RSC page that log in place is in the top navigation bar at the far right.

I've personally tested this up one side and down the other and I promise the key here is the log in. 

If you still have trouble please do email and let us know your log in so we can run a test.

As with anyhting new there is a learning curve. Luckily we're knitters and are very familiar with curves of learning.

Notorious Sock Knitter Button Design Contest

Okay, so one of my goals this year is more fun and games. I love fun and games! 

See that button to your right? (If you're reading this, and you are, your're looking directly at the screen, which means button is on the right. On left is just a big expanse of blueness!)  The button that says, Notorious Sock Knitters in orange and Rockin' the Rainbow 2012, under that.  Yes, that button.

Well... we need a new one of these for 2013. Now, I could go meet with graphic and we could design something or... we could have a contest and let you notoriously talented folks design one.

I vote for the contest. I know you do to.

Here are the paremeters:

1. It needs to say Notorious Sock Knitters or Rockin' Sock Club.

2. It needs to have the date 2013 on it.

3. It needs to be this size: 2" square. dpi at 350 as a jpg (please)

4. Submitted to us at by January 25th

Team Blue Moon will choose 5 for you to vote on here (blog). We'll post them on Tuesday, January 29th. Voting goes until January 31st.

The button with the most votes will be our new button for 2013. The designer receives a $100.00 dollar Gift Certificate. We'll use the button here on the RSC blog, on your blogs, on RAVELRY and we'll even make a hard copy one for us all to put on our knit bags. (Hard copy will not be in this shipment, for obvious reasons).
