I am glad to have been a part of the worldwide Notorious Sock Knitters group for the past two years running. Although I have not knitted all of the kits that arrived, I appreciate the wide group of men and women across the globe who are united in keeping feet warm and pretty.
The Rockin’ Sock Club includes 6 exclusive colourways of Socks That Rock mailed every two months which include a pattern (or two in the case of the 2010 RSC), a little something extra and an emergency skein of that mailing’s colourway. Oh and an all-important one-time only discount coupon which is valid for most of the year and can be used any time. Last year’s emergency skeins came in a metal ring, here they are decorating my pattern binder. From left to right: Garden Daze, Pepe Le Pume, My Blue Heaven, Gertrude Skein, River Rocked and Blackbird.
This year however, in order to cut down on cost I suppose, the metal rings were ditched. The colours are still very rich and saturated, but to be honest I was not impressed so much. There are 3 very similar-looking colours and frankly, I am a bit disappointed. I do love STR and it’s the best sock yarn I have ever used but I don’t think I will sign up for next year’s club. It goes well with my full yarn diet plan of 2011. More on that later. From left to right: Happy Go Lucky, My Wild Irishgirlie, Firecracker, Sweet Pea, Pining 4 Ewe (sic!) and The Skein with No Name. The latter being the final shipment this year and which I present to you below.
