Don't Forget the Acorns

Since it's getting well into November now, I thought I would post a quick note about the upcoming Acorn Sock Kits for anyone who missed the post about this in September.

You may recall that Anne Hanson of KnitSpot is creating a sock pattern for the “Greed” colorway for the Fearless Fibers Seven Deadly Sins Sock Yarn Club. The pattern will be part of the final club shipment later this month.

The colorways from the Sock Club will not be generally available to non-members until some time in 2008. The one exception is the "Greed" colorway and Acorn socks. (Anne's "Acorn" sock theme is her take on greed -- picture greedy little squirrels with cheeks bulging with acorns). Kits with the Greed sock yarn and Acorn pattern will be available toward the end of this month. The kits will sell for $23 plus $4.60 for Priority Shipping in the U.S., $4 for First Class Shipping to Canada, and $7 for First Class Shipping to Europe.

I’m taking names for a pre-order list for the kits, so if you want to have a kit reserved for you and ready in late November, just send me an e-mail and ask to be added to the pre-order list. When the kits are ready, I will create “reserved” listings in my shop with the kits for folks on the pre-order list.

Note that you don’t have to be on the pre-order list to get a kit. There will be kits generally available as well, but the quantities will be small and will be replenished as they sell, so getting on the pre-order list is just a way to ensure you get a kit as soon as they become available and that you don’t have to scramble and try to snap one up before others do.

Everyone have a wonderful day!

I have been watching Anne on her blog as she created them. They are too cute.
