SOCKAMANIA LIVES!

After much discussion we have decided to give Sockamania one more chance. We realize that the summer months for some are months when little knitting is done. Once fall rolls around and the new fall yarns start appearing at your local LYS, there is a renewed interest. So, beginning with the September pattern we are going to change to every other month. This not only gives Tama extra time for designing, but also gives the members extra time for knitting.

So have fun with the August pattern and beginning in September the pattern will be posted for two months (September and October), the next pattern will be for November and December. We hope by doing this there will be an increase in participation and Sockamania will live on for many years to come.

As a side note, I hope when you are thinking about what yarn to use for your Sockamania pattern that you are looking at all the beautiful yarns Tama has in her Etsy Shop The Twisted Hare (www.etsy.com/shop/twistedharefiberarts). As an added bonus Sockamania members receive free shipping!

Happy Knitting!

That's wonderful news!
And two months for one pattern is, for me, indeed better to manege.
Keep up the good knitting-work!

Oh my I just say this. I thought it was over and didn't have the heart to look. I missed August but oh well. So I can still knit September and have to end of October? Oh I am excited!
