SYC = Sock Yarn Club!

That’s right! It’s time for the first ever Fearless Fibers Sock Yarn Club!

I’m sure many of you figured out that my hot news with the hint “SYC” was a sock yarn club, but I don’t think anyone could possibly have guessed the second clue: SDS. So what does SDS stand for? It stands for the Seven Deadly Sins! That’s the theme of this sock yarn club.

Here are all the details:

Sign-ups begin: TODAY, July 13th! Memberships will remain open until August 5th or until 50 people have signed up, whichever comes first. The club will be limited to 50 memberships.

Where to purchase your membership: Fearless Fibers' Etsy Shop (The memberships are listed in the "Sock Yarn" section of the shop. You may need to scroll through the listings a bit to find the listing, since newly sock yarns may push the club listing further down the page.)

What you’ll receive: Seven skeins of Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in brand new colorways inspired by the seven deadly sins (Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Pride, Envy, Lust, and Greed) plus one new sin-inspired sock pattern by the incomparable Anne Hanson of KnitSpot.

Package schedule: The first shipment of two skeins will be sent on or about August 21st. A second shipment of two skeins will be shipped on or about September 21st and a third shipment of two skeins on or about October 21st. The seventh and final skein, together with the original KnitSpot pattern, will be shipped on or about November 21st.

Full details are also available in the my shop item listing for the sock club. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail!

Let the sinful fun begin!

Oh, this sounds fantastic. Unfortunately I can't purchase a sock club membership, but I do hope that you do it again. The price is great, very reasonable for the amount of yarn you are getting. Some sock clubs are just not even in my price range.

Another fabulous Fearless Fibers venture! I'm trying to guess the basic colorways: Envy and Lust are fairly easy, but I wonder what colors will be suggested by Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Pride, and Greed. Sloth in particular is a hard one!

Dang, I wish I had the money. Wahhhhhhhh!!!!!!

DragonsChest said...

What a cool concept! I'll have to see if I can wrestle the budget into submission so it gives up the money. And yep, Sloth will be an interesting one to see how it turns out.

Ok, you have got to have a big success with this so you do it again, 'cause I'm starting to save up now. Deal? Love your theme, that's brilliant!

And I made sure to blog it. ;)

I have seen a lot of sock yarn clubs. And they all seem a bit like buying a pig in a bag. But your yarn is always beautiful so even sight unseen it is a sure thing :-)

Oh, so totally not fair when you know I'm on a yarn diet due to unemployment! Promise you'll do this again after I have a job!
