The time has come- sign ups for SSYC's 11th Sock Yarn Club are now available!
At Simply Socks Yarn Company, we do a couple three-month themed sock yarn clubs each year. The last one featured yarns that were inspired by the Paris photography of Nichole Robertson. This club's theme is "A few of my favorite things" and features three yarns and accessories (and a yarn-only option if you'd prefer) that are among my current faves and things I see becoming the things to knit in 2014.
Hi! This is me! Allison! (one tends to overuse exclamation points, being surrounded by sock yarn for the better part of a decade)
Each month (November, December and January) you'll receive a special edition skein of sock yarn paired with a hand made or hand designed accessory. All are the highest quality fingering weight yarns and enough to make a pair of socks, though you'll also receive free pattern ideas for non-sock projects. You pay one subscription fee up front, and your parcels are shipped out mid-month on the months indicated. You don't need to do anything else other than order the Yarn +Goodies, or All About the Yarn (no goodies) options. Or both.
To be enrolled in the club, please make sure that your club subscription/s is the only thing in your shopping cart at Check Out. International orders use the same links as US order, but you'll see your normal shipping rate tacked on at the end (to account for the added cost of shipping to you), while US customers will see no addition shipping fee, as shipping is already worked into the price of the club.
Earlier I mentioned that you have the option of choosing the Yarn + Goodies, or Just Yarn (no extras) options. This is something that many of you asked for this time, as we usually don't include anything but yarn and pattern ideas in the kits. Many of you said that you really enjoy treating yourself to something special with our kits, so we are giving you the option of choosing what you'd prefer. If you'd like to purchase more than one subscription, you are welcome to do that as well. Perhaps you'd like to give one to a friend each month. Or perhaps you'd like to ensure you have enough yarn for larger projects, thus want to purchase the Goodies option and add on a non-goodie option. If you do purchase more than one subscription, please e-mail and remind us, as we can refund $9 from each additional kit b/c we'll be combining for shipping.
Want a hint at what may be coming in the first month of the club? A few of you have already figured it out, due to my earlier whispers on the blog and mentions on another particular dyer's blog (someone I've wanted to support in my shop for years).... you are great at connecting dots! I'll reveal one later this week.... but for now, no spoilers!
What kind of goodies are in the club? If you choose the Yarn + Goodies option, you can expect a range of things I'm currently obsessed with, in a range of prices. It will start with the less expensive goodies and end with something that I've never seen offered in a club or kit before. Truly special.
Have any other questions? Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get them answered as quickly as possible. Our last club sold out much quicker than I anticipated, so I'll do my best to help you in a timely manner so you can decide either way. I'll try and keep the sign ups open for a week from today, but you could see the Goodie link giving you the "no products found" page if it sells out.
