It's Raining Cats and Dogs!

By now the June sock club boxes are on their way to you, and hopefully most of you have received your packages. When we were planning this year's sock club last year, the theme for June was something entirely different. In the process of several things changing over the course of a year, we adjusted the theme and yarn entirely and I'm so happy that we did! Our pets are very much a part of our lives here at Woolgirl, and we know that the majority of you have either a dog or cat or both, so we hope that this kit is as close to your heart as it is to ours'.

Be sure to enter the contest also, as there are lots of super cute knitting accessory bags to win! Wouldn't your "It's Raining Cats and Dogs" colorway look great in one of these? The link to the contest is on the right sidebar.

We're so glad you've joined us for the sock club this year and as always, happy knitting!

Are you getting ready?

It's just about that time to ship the next round of sock club packages out, and we're sure busy around here preparing for it! I hope you've been having fun knitting your first sock club shipment - and that you've taken some first steps in becoming the Queen of your knitting!

This next sock club shipment will also include 2 patterns (one sock pattern and something else), so you'll have a choice once again. Other than that, no clues will be given until the sock packages start showing up at your doorsteps!

The contest information is included in your sock club packages, and I'll post it here in the next couple of weeks (after most of you have received your sock club packages).

The Cleopatra contest winners are listed on the right hand side of the blog, and detailed information has been sent to each winner, and has been included in your new sock club packages.
Have a wonderful April!

Welcome to the 2009 Woolgirl Sock Club

Welcome to the Woolgirl Sock Club! I am so happy to have you join us this year and can’t wait to share with you some of the fun things we have planned for the year. I hope you’re ready for some surprises!

This is the year to take control of your knitting; or, in other words, to become the “Queen” of your knitting domain. Experience new patterns, try different techniques, expand your color pallet, and step outside the box just a bit each time you knit a new pair of sock. Before you know it, you’ll be knitting like a pro (if you aren’t already), discovering likes you never knew you had, and knitting a slew of socks this year (along with a few other projects we have in store!).

I will post about the first sock club shipment in a week or two - I don't want to spoil the surprise just yet! I will list sock club shipping dates here on the blog, as well as new contests, and we have a Ravelry group started, so hope you will join us there as well!

As always, please be conscientious when posting your photos on Ravelry, as not everyone receives their sock club packages at the same time and it wouldn't be fair to ruin the surprise for others. Always post a spoiler alert with your photos if possible if you are among the first to receive your sock club package.

Here's to a wonderful year of sock knitting! So glad you are each in the club!

Jen (Woolgirl)
