I've had loads of people asking about our Sock Club so I thought I would sit and write a bit more about it and answer everyone's questions at the same time.
Who is Sock Club aimed at?
Ideally you would have already knitted at least one pair of plain vanilla socks before. It's not essential but sock club is about developing your sock knitting skills so if you have a basic knowledge already that would help.
Do I have to sign up for the whole year?
No you don't you can pick and choose which months you want to do. Following feedback we have reduced the number of sock clubs to six spread evenly across the year.
I hate toe up socks?
Yes I know they are like marmite some people love them and some people hate them. We are including them to get you trying out new techniques. We will be releasing details soon as to which months are top down and top up. That way if you really can't stand them you can avoid them.
What size will the socks be?
I've deliberately choosen sock patterns that have more than one size so they will fit most people.
What does sock club include?
Each club contains a pattern and the relevant yarn to make it. Some months you will receive 100g of my hand dyed yarn other month's you will receive 200g of commercial sock yarn. It all depends on the pattern and how many colours of yarn are needed.
Can I get a sneak peak of the design?
Yes in the next few weeks we will release pictures of the six designs I've chosen plus the month they will appear.
What if I get stuck?
I will be knitting the socks as well so if you get stuck or don't understand the pattern just call into the shop and I will help you.
How do I sign up?
You can sign up right here online or by calling into the shop.
