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!

  3. I have never enjoyed a sock club as much as i enjoy the "gift packages" that your shipments truly are! I loved everything about the first installment of this sock club and agree with Indywoman term of "magical.

    thanks so much - please take good care

  4. I loved the contest! My degree in in Art History and Archaeology and I specialized in the Hellenistic period---my daughter said my answers were far too "technical" but I said, well...that's what they are!

    Great kit! Great theme! I couldn't be happier!

  8. Thanks so much for an awesome start to the club, Jen! I learned a lot of stuff about Cleopatra that I didn't know before either. Very interesting...
    I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings. :)

  9. I think the Cleopatra theme is just inspired Jen! :) I love the kit (and I do every one of your kits)! They just make me feel so special and pampered and the yarn and pattern(s) are always first-class! What a wonderful beginning!

  12. I have been intending to comment ever since I got my first shipment. A party in a box! It exceeded my expectations and I'm so excited about the club! Jen, THANK YOU. You obviously put a lot of thought and effort into this and I, for one, am a gleeful recipient!
