May? Is dead to me. Or at least my socks for May are for the time being. I truly do not like them BUT I have gotten permission from my partner in crime Cookie to work on them over the course of the year to try to have them done by January 1.

This meant I was free to choose my June socks! I decided to document it this month so I can’t be accused of, um…softening the results. ;o)

Here is my ‘sock club bin’ (I don’t think I’ve shared it with you before this):


Hmmm…I guess I’ll take…this one.

My choice

what's inside?

Is it just me or does the bag seem to be…staring at me…ohwell. It took me a moment to work up the nerve but I managed to rip it open:

Firestarters !

YAY! Yarn I love…pattern I can’t wait to knit! Woo!

ETA: pattern link – sorry about that!

  1. That is a sexy colorway! Whew! What’s the pattern?

    I just cast on some socks as well, though I fell off the sock club wagon a long time ago. Your colorway puts mine to shame (’cause I’m only using it for the smooooth alpaca content!)

  2. Honey, you do what you gotta do, but if you end up bailing on those socks in the end, can I have the yarn? :P

    So, what’s the pattern?

    I’m sure glad I don’t have rules like yours for the “sweater club”. I’m sure there are some pretty yarn & patterns left in the 5, though you did reject 2 of them in May, but are you allowed to replace any of the 5?

    Nice, I’m knitting socks in that yarn right now. :) Not sure I like them though, might rip em.

  5. Hmmmm, I may have to try this “sock club” routine too. My production has totally fallen. Well, not fallen … actually, more like died. :-) It seems to be working for you (except for last month, and we won’t mention that again!) so maybe it will do the trick for me too. Maybe starting next month – LOL!

  6. The color looks great, can’t wait to see the pattern. I know I’m a little late to the game but didn’t you put all those bags together to begin with? Then again we all pull out losers now and again even without choosing blindly so I guess it’s understandable.

  7. I saw we draft people to join us next year. Carole needs to understand the disappointment of picking a combo you no longer love and being stuck with it. ;^)

    I also think we need the option to drop a month if things don’t work out. What do you think? That would get you off the hook for May and give me an out should things get weird later on.

  8. Oh, yummy color!

    And so much fun to have a box full of mystery kits there. Maybe if I had a box like that I wouldn’t keep splurging at The Loopy Ewe. I swear, I should just sign over my house to that store.

    But I don’t think I’d have the self control not to rip them all open.

  9. I just love how you have you sock club bin. I may have to do that to all of my sock club socks that I have been weeding thru to get knitted up.

  10. When I saw the bags I thought you were brown bagging lunch for a big family of kids. Glad to know it’s sock yarn instead — and very yummy yarn at that.
