I have two more projects that are holdovers from '08 but I plan to take care of them this year but not at this moment. Now I'm going to turn my attention toward the sock club I joined through a group on Ravelry - Personal Sock Club 2009. Not to bore anyone with the details but basically you go in your stash pull yarn, match up them up to patterns you want to do, stash 'em all in separate, unmarked bags and (voila!) you have your own personal sock club. Of course you could do it with lace, sweaters, hats - whatever your preference!


I created 11 kits, because honestly 12 was too much pressure. I have five socks with patterns, four plain and two small project projects (one with sock yarn). I pulled my first bag and (drum roll, please!) I pulled some delicious STR that has been sitting in my stash along with RPM.


Today I have to deal with house stuff but tonight will be for me and my STR. Hee!

I love this Personal Sock Club idea! Oh and in the little bags and everything, you'd have instant project whenever you needed one. I'm tempted to do that too if it weren't for the stress of a to-do list.

So is "weird pinkish" the real name of that colourway? I wish stuff was actually labelled that honestly in real life...

I can't believe you have a FO already, you speed demon. Must be the power of crazy eyes.

12 is too much pressure! You're funny.

It's a great idea though.
