Socks For All Seasons 2010 Pattern Club!

I'm really excited to share with you (finally!) a pattern club I've been working on for a while: Socks For All Seasons!

What is Socks For All Seasons?

Socks for All Seasons is a modern almanac of sock knitting!

This club will take a knitter through an entire year with different techniques, skills and patterns to learn along the way. Each month will feature one original sock pattern that will celebrate the season or highlight a special holiday. (or maybe one you didn't know existed?)

The club starts March 1st, 2010. It runs for 12 months, and has 12 patterns. Each pattern will also contain one extra, like a recipe, word game or crossword puzzle, just for fun! The PDF file will be sent to your email address on the first of the month. I have no spoilers for you, the patterns will be a surprise for now.

Patterns are exclusive to the club for the duration of the year. When the club is over, the patterns will all be available to purchase individually, or together as an e-book (downloadable PDF collection).

Club Details:

You can join the club with different options, your choice:

1. Just sign on for one month, any month. You choose. $3.99

2. Sign on for three months. Any three months, you choose. $9.99

3. Sign on for six months. Any six months, you choose. $12.99

4. Sign on for the whole year! Yay! $14.99

The E-Book (available March 2011) will cost $15.99. It will be a complete collection of all 12 patterns plus a bonus secret pattern!

The good news: If you join a club, the price you pay will be deducted from the e-book if you wish to purchase it. Meaning, if you sign on for three months, for example, the e-book will only cost you $5.00 ($15.99 minus $9.99). Get it?

No Place Like Home

Hi again! I hope everyone enjoyed their little time away from this blog as much as I did. I am ready to come back and share some recent adventures and hope you're still along for the ride!

2010: A year for action. And doing what makes you happy.

Speaking of happy, I've got new patterns to release on February 1st. Until then, I'll tease the last of the Wizard of OZ patterns I designed for the Fresh From the Cauldron Wizard of OZ Club: No Place Like Home.

Once upon a time a farming girl from Kansas named Dorothy found herself wearing a magical pair of shoes. Their secret remained hidden for quite some time while Dorothy skipped along the yellow brick road having adventures with her ragtag friends. Please don’t stay home wearing these lacy, beaded socks. Have a night out in the Emerald City and paint the town red with your pals. Click your heels together and get to where you want to go!

It's not like me to make lacy socks with silver sparkle and beads. I am stretching my wings, for sure. In fact, I'm going to design some sweaters this year in addition to the usual accessories I can't stop knitting.

2010: A year for challenging yourself.

I have big plans for this year. I'm also excited about the stuff I don't even know about yet. I know that makes sense, really.

I hope you're excited too; let's jump in together!
