Sock Club: September

We are heading into the last quarter of Sock Club 2010 and many of the Dublin knitters have been keeping up with their sock knitting.

The theme for September is Back to School, Work or just your regular routine. 

Well done, and thanks for sharing your sock patterns, ideas and pictures on Ravelry.

Planning ahead…

Upcoming DKC SnB: Wednesday 03 March 2010 from 6pm to 8:30pm. This will be our Pre-St. Paddy’s Day Celebration and our theme will be Green with Envy…

Bring along anything green to swap, sell, or generally show off any fibre-related item(s) that would make any knitter or crocheter green with envy

Venue: The Chocolate Bar from 18:00h to 20:30h

Announcing the upcoming theme for our Sock Club…

A picture is worth a thousand socks.

We have posted a picture for each month, and we want to see how you can use your creativity, imagination and originality to knit socks for April, May or June.

We’ll be offering a prize for each month for our favourite pair of socks.  Let’s see those socks!

Have fun sock knitters….

starting the year on the right or left foot…

 

Join the Dublin Knit Collective Sock  Club 2010. This sock club is open to everyone, there are no membership fees to join, there is no sign up list and best of all, no purchase is necessary; unless you don’t have a stash of sock yarn, dpn’s (double pointed needles) or circular needles.

The concept of the DKC Sock Club 2010 is to knit socks in 2010, simple isn’t it? Set a specific goal for yourself, such as, “I want to knit 12 pairs of socks in 2010.”

There is reason to believe that there are several Dublin knitters out there who have a stash of sock yarn just waiting to grow into a pair of feet; and maybe 2010 will be the year to make a dent in your sock yarn inventory.

If you don’t know how to knit socks or just want to improve your sock knitting skills contact your LYS for a Learn to Knit Sock class this year.

No sign up list, however, you can set your DKC Sock Club goal for 2010 by submitting a comment on this blog post. Throughout the year, DKC will be calling out to the Dublin knitters to check on your progress.

To start off 2010, January’s sock theme is cure the wintery blues.  What comes to  your mind? Blue socks? Cabled socks? Breaking away from the second sock syndrome?  Use your imagination…

No pressures…just knit and enjoy!
