SEPTEMBER KIT ARRIVAL

LET THE BELLS RING OUT, LET THE PEOPLE SHOUT because I got my September kit today, September 4th at 12 noon. The funny thing is that I picked it up and throwing restraint to the wind, I tried to RIP IT OPEN. Thank goodness, Tina’s envelopes are stronger than I am. In the excitement of seeing the package and feeling the yarn through the envelope, all thoughts of the mass opening blew right out of my mind. It’s sitting on my bed looking at me as I type this and is still a virgin package. I will wait to hear from Zyd as to when we are going to do the opening.

Name That Skein!!!

OK. So has everyone entered the contest to 'Name That Colourway"? I think it would be absolutely incredibly edifying if Tina's inbox exploded because 2000 RSKers all sent in an entry for al least one of the colourways. When I was checking the list just now, I noticed that my one knitting friend in Sudbury, my minister, had entered a list of names in cooperation with her son(whom I taught in senior kindergarten). If non sock club members are getting on the band wagon-I must admit I kind of hyped it a bit this afternoon when she was here winding yarn on

I got mine too in FL!!

What a BEAUtiful colorway and patterns!!!

I dont know...

we've already had an intense red, and a bright veggie-green. I agree with those who are guessing a 70s theme--or maybe 80s  too? Neon colors mixed with black?! :-0

Swing Set

Caution, this pattern is addicting!  Especially if you make the bootie size! 

I used leftover Goody Goody and will probably be making more of the booties, as there are quite a few babies coming.

Change of Address

I can't figure out how to change my mailing address on my account... or who I should email to notify them about a change of address.  I just moved and want to make sure everything is in order before the next shipment.

Does anyone know how/what I should do?

Finished first pair

I Finally finished the first pair of socks.  I did the Flabella pattern, and it took me a few times ripping back until I figured the pattern out. My guage was off from the pattern suggestions. I guess I must be a loose knitter since even on size 1 needles my gauge was too big. so I just made a womens small and hoped it would fit my medium foot.  And yay it did! I love the way the bobbles and wedges look, the bobbles were kind of a pain, but the outcome is nice, so definitely worth it.

Now onto the next month!

May Kits

Canadian kits seem to have shipped. Mine has anyway!!! It takes ages to arrive in Sudbury, but that's not Tina's fault. Now to keep my eyes peeled for the postman and his package filled withyarny goodness, fabulous patterns, dyer's notes(thank you Tina), and more. Hurrah!!!!

Slip Jig hints. I love this pattern

I am amost to  the toe of the first Slip Jig sock. I love the pattern and the way the yarn and pattern make something greater than each alone.

 

I had to rip a few times at the beginning, because I am making this sock in lightweight, and I will make Secret Garden in the medium weight. My first cast-on was just a long-tail, which I didn't like the looks of when the top of the cuff turned over at the first cable. In fact, I wasn't fond of the turn over anyway. I persisted, and found that what was very loose at the top, was way too tight at the cable.
