Sock Log 2008
2008 is the year of the sock for me! I will be creating a sock log to be posted on my blog and would love to share it with you. We can post KAL's for sock patterns. Perhaps you are in a sock club and want to see how others are doing with their yarn and patterns. Are you creating your own pattern? Tell us about it. Need some help, I'm sure someone can help you. Just how many pairs can you make this year? Come join us!

Nefarious Yarn Club

Hill Country Yarn Club is open for its second series. I can vouch that this is looovely, soft sock yarn. Plus, it's very affordable at $60 for a three-installment club over six months. Enrollment is open from December 1-February 15th.
