Launching Sockamania PLUS Merino Sock Club

I've decided to launch sock club. It will be called 'Sockamania Plus Merino Sock Club' and will not affect Sockmania which will run as normal. All Sockamania Plus members will be invited to join the Sockamania blog and will be included in the monthly draw as well.

Here's how the Sockamania PLUS Merino Sock Club will work. Check out my Etsy shop to join. I'm starting off with 20 memberships for the first month but I anticipate it will increase from November. I jsut want to start with an easily manageable number. I've listed 10 UK memberships and 10 International memberships but will jig those numbers around if needed.

Please note that this does not affect the regular Sockamania club which will continue as normal.

Join our Sockamania Plus Merino Sock Club and receive a sock pattern (the same pattern used for the Sockamania Club and a hand painted skein of merino especially painted in colours to suit the month's pattern (this will mean that some months will be variegated, some selfstriping, some solid/semisolid).

Most months you will receive a 100gr skein, but if the monthly pattern requires a larger amount then you will get the extra free.You will never get less than 100gr though.The parcels will be posted by 25th of each month for non-UK members and 28th of each month for UK members. Although for October the parcels will be posted a little late. I'll get them all in the post by 30th September.

Your first parcel will include a sock pattern, a handmade fabrick project bag and merino sock yarn. You will also receive a 20% off voucher which you can use to make one purchase from my Etsy shop (any products, any size order but the voucher can only be used once).Second and third parcels will contain a sock pattern and merino sock yarn.

This club will run for 3 months. After that there will be an option for you to rejoin at a cheaper price if you rejoin immediately.

Merino Sock Yarn - 4ply/fingering weight
Approximately 8st = 1in on 2.75mm/US2 needles.
100gr = 400m/440yds

The sock patterns will also be available for regular Sockamania members and it will also be for sale in my Etsy shop after the month has finished. But the yarn will be a Sockamania Plus exclusive and will never be repeated.

To join for October please sign up before 25th September.
