Wonderland Club 2018

Pre-sales for the Wonderland Club have begun.  There will be six sock designs in this club all designed around Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice in Wonderland.  This is an eclectic selection of socks designed specifically to help you grow your knitting knitting skills.  They include tips I’ve picked up along my own sock journey as well as things I’ve learned as I’ve worked my way through the Master Knitting Program …… still doing that…..focus Becky…..the end is in sight.

You have already seen glimpses of the first sock which is something I think sweet little Alice would have worn when she tumbled down that rabbit hole.  I’ve picked a very easy lace pattern which should not scare even the most novice of sock knitters.  I’ll add short tutorial clips with each pattern release to help you along the way or down the rabbit hole if you please.

Because our needles get full throughout the year and calendars get cluttered I have decided the patterns will be released every two weeks.  The designs are finished but will not show up in your e-book until I click the ‘activate’ button.

The Wonderland Club will be on sale for $10.00 until December 22 when the first pattern is activated.  After that it will go up to $12.00.  If you don’t want to gamble when you haven’t seen all the designs, and who blames you, each pattern will be released individually for $2.50.

I hope you can come join us!

Bonus Cheshire Stripe Sock for early-bird sign ups. This pattern is great for those scrappy leftovers. I’m planning on making one sock a month in 2018 using this pattern – all in different colors. The tip I’ve shared in this pattern is how to work a jogless stripe.  There is also an afterthought heel and there will be how-to photos in the pattern. It will be added to the ebook bundle next week after I’ve had a photo shoot.

Mum is a Busy Sewer

Watching podcasts has inspired me to sew project bags again.

I’ve always enjoyed sewing project bags for my many knitting projects but now, even more so.IMG_5411 I think it is because there are many lovely fabrics out there and, although I no longer make garments for myself (never say never), I long to make something with these fabrics.  A project bag for my knitting makes perfect sense to me.

As I play with fabric I will make a few for others and put them in the Socks-for-Mum long neglected Etsy shop.

Long ago I made and sold quilted needle keepers.  This was several years back so re-opening the shop will have a learning curve.  And, there will not be mass production but just a few lovelies now and again.

As soon as some sweet little foxes arrive these project bags will be put in the shop.  The foxes will be made into progress keepers and will be attached to the zipper pulls with a lobster clasp.
