Sock Club Update

Over the last few weeks it's been like Sockclubpalooza around here. It's that time of year for fun patterns and great yarn to take knitting in the autumn and winter season. In no particular order are:

"The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" from Woolgirl. White Oak TV yarn and pattern, pumpkin stitch marker, Charlie Brown sock bag, and Halloween treat bag.

Coming in November, "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown", and in January "Be my Valentine, Charlie Brown". I love this holiday themed club, lots of fun and patterns I will use for years to come.

The first "Woolgirl" sock club shipment, this was a "wow". Great pattern, wonderfully soft Miss Babs yarn, sock journal, club pen, crystal stitch marker, mint lip balm and a yarn contest. If all the club installments are of this quality I will most definately be signing up for the next installment.

Pick Up Sticks, new Fleece Artist sock yan, Nova Sock, and the member contest pattern by Corey LaFlamme. The colours scream autumn and may be turned into "Charlie Brown pumpkin" socks.

Tsarina sock club, as you see the pattern is based on the opera Turandot, the VanCalcar Acres yarn is soft and silky and came with a gift from the yarn fairy, a skein of soft pumpkin sock yarn, which will be turned into Log Cabin cable socks.

On the needles I have a vintage baby cardigan, the first of three, three pairs of socks, and I have found the pattern and yarn for my Christmas Around the World Swap, Cherry Tree Hill in Amythest using the Log Cabin sock pattern from Handknit Holidays. I finished my variation of the "pirate" toque last week, present for great-neice, and am looking for the perfect pair of fingerless mittens to go with it.
The temperatures are starting to cooperate with the season and I am starting to really enjoy the spirit of autumn, I made a glorious pumpkin pie this morning and a large pot of pumpkin corn chowder. This really is my favorite time of year, crisp cool days, warm pots of homemade soup and old-fashioned comfort deserts.
