2011 year of socks

I’ve just mailed out the last of the 2011 sock yarn travel club mailings. I’ve enjoyed the club for so many reasons. Its given me the chance to continue to work with the talented designer, Jocelyn Blair (aka Fiberdev on Ravelry) as well as explore new colorways. I love being able to play with themes and focus on a select group of skeins; mixing dyes, shifting colors, getting everything just right, watching the dyes strike and forever change the white yarns. Sometimes the themes came first, giving me ideas for possible colorways, other times I started dyeing and the colors inspired the theme. I’m influenced by my surrounds and have taken in the colors of the landscape without even noticing until… there, they show up in my dye pot!

Hope you enjoyed it.

  1. I enjoyed it very much, and I’m looking forward to next year! I’ve declared 2012 to be my own personal ‘year of socks,’ so some of 2011s club yarns will be seeing some sock action, and 2012s, it sounds like, might be seeing some shawl/scarf/who knows action?

  2. Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it too. I sympathize, I have a hard time keeping up with all of my projects too!
    Yes, 2012 will be a mix of one skein projects….. more details coming.

  3. I sure have had a blast with my socks – although I haven’t finished them all yet! Great colors, fun patterns, and always a joy to have something to look forward to in the mail.
