Also, I will be announcing the details of a new club soon. I'm really excited about the designs for the new club - and it's not all socks! In preparation for the club I'd love to get some feedback about the last one. I set up a survey which is for you to anonymously give honest feedback about your experience. There are only 8 questions and I really hope you can spare a couple of minutes to fill it out:

I love your patterns. Even through I wasn't knitting along (I've got a serious sock commitment problem), I'll admit to being excited every month to see what kind of awesomeness you'd come up with.

Love the socks with the multi-color, multi-directional stripes. Makes me want to start knitting them right this minute!

I'm a Day of the Dead fan, too. The socks would go with my complete outfit. I liked your wild skeins class at Sock Summit '11. I just started a pair of STR Hard Rock socks using the Banisters textured pattern from the wrist warmers in a Knitting Traditions magazine.
