The DKC Sock Club returns this January 2015!

Membership is now open to all sock knitters and the curious…

It will be a year of bespoke socks, totally handknit by you. Enjoy 2015 with knit alongs (kals) and sock yarn lovin’ .

For the kals, you can join in anytime and no deadline to finish, unless it’s a special knit along (more news on that later).

Each month or so, a sock pattern will be featured as a knit along. Cast on, if you so desire and post your progress on our Ravelry DKC Sock Club discussion thread or on Twitter, just follow @sockclub15

The first sock kal of 2015 is Stepaside, a top down sock pattern designed by knitwear designer, Yvonne McSwiney of Dublin Dye Company . I hope you’ll say hello to Yvonne as I have invited her to pop in to answer any of your questions in our Sock Club discussion forum.

CAST ON on New Years’ Day or anytime after that and this kal does not have a deadline.

Knit and enjoy the pleasures of handknit socks…

I know January 2013 is winding down, and I’m only getting around to writing this blogpost about this the Dublin Knit Collective Sock Club in our Ravelry discussion group. Now in our third year, this sock club is open to everyone. There are no membership fees to join, no waiting lists and best of all, no purchase is necessary; unless you need sock yarn, dpn’s (double pointed needles) or circular needles from your favourite LYS.

The DKC Sock Club is challenging the sock knitter (& crocheter, too) to use your imagination and creativity to create a pair of socks anytime throughout the year.

I hope you will join me on Ravelry and knit a pair of socks throughout the month of February based on anyone of these themes:

Mardi Gras
Chinese New Year, Year of the Snake
Valentine’s Day
