Pick Your Poison Sock Club

Introducing the Pick Your Poison Sock Club!

This 6-month club is a yarn only club featuring semi-solid colorways in your choice of color palette. Each month, members will receive a new skein of basic sock yarn dyed in a different colorway from their chosen palette. Yarn bases will be wool, or wool blend, and have a minimum of 400yds per 100gr skein, which should be enough for an average pair of socks (or mitts).
  • Club installments will be shipped monthly from September 2012 through February 2013.
  • Yarn will be shipped during the third week of each month via USPS.
  • This is a yarn only club, so no patterns are included.
  • Yarns will vary from month to month and may include wool or wool blends.
Deadline to order is July 31, 2012!
Deadline to order with the installment option is June 30, 2012!

The Mystery Shawl #28 is now available to join. I’m doing things a little differently this time, so this KAL will be FREE.

I am dyeing my Decadent Lace LTD yarn for this, there are four colors to choose from.
• The group is free to join, you DO NOT need to purchase the pattern in order to be in the group.
• The KAL will NOT include a complete copy of the pattern but you will be able to purchase a discounted copy (some restrictions apply).

The group will be open to new members until July 14, 2012.

For more info and to join the group, visit the group’s home page.

The Ravelry group for this will be the same Mystery Shawl Along group as usual.

Huge DESTASH on My Website!

Huge DESTASH on my website!

These yarns are from my personal stash, not dyed by me, that I’m wanting to get rid of. All prices are less than regular retail and include shipping to US or Canada only.

Since this is considered “second-hand” yarn, all sales are final, no returns accepted; no implied guarantees or warranties on any item.

Purchase more than one of these items - of $10 or more each - and receive an additional 10% off using coupon code “MYSTASH” when you checkout. You MUST add at least TWO Personal Stash items to your shopping cart in order to use the coupon or your order will be cancelled and payment refunded. Coupon code is only good for items listed as Personal Stash, any other items on the website cannot be included as an additional item.

If you wish to purchase anything else, from my website, please order them separately. Thanks!
