Tails of Another Yarn

Tails of Another Yarn is a new blog created by Tama Vaughn (The Twisted Hare) and is a spinoff of Sockamania. Instead of just knitting socks, Tama would like to offer you a place to showcase your other knitting projects and win prizes too.

Each month, members will be able to post a photo of a Work In Progress or a Completed Project. At the end of the month the names of the participants for that month will be entered into a drawing and winner will be chosen.

Occasionally Tama will post a new design pattern - Tama's Special. It could be anything. She has even hinted at doing a Mystery Knit-A-Longs. Anyone who participates in Tama Specials and completes their project, will be entered for a special prize draw. Unlike Sockamania, where the winner could select their prize, drawing prizes for Tails of Another Yarn will be chosen by the Tails of Another Yarn admin team.

If you would like to become part of Tails of Another Yarn, please go to the blog at: More information about this new blog are there, along with the email address of where to join.

This a new blog, so please bear with us as we work out the kinks. The first prize drawing will be scheduled for December 31, 2010. Beginning January, 2011, prize drawings will be held monthly.

Hi everyone,

This is a difficult message to post and it's been a difficult decision to make. Unfortunately Sockamania will be closing. I have not been designing for Sockamania for some time now as I just did not have time to keep this club going. Tama offered to take over from me and have done a fantastic job. I love all the socks she has produced. Unfortunately she is no longer able to continue.

Add to that the fact that participation has dropped, we've taken the decision to close this club.

A huge thank you to Tama, for keeping this club going and to Barb for helping running things. Also a big thank you to Pixie, who was a helper until fairly recently. I really appreciate all the work you've all done.

There will be no more Sockamania patterns but I won't delete the blog. It'll stay live for some time so you cna still admire the fabolous socks knitted.

Tama and Barb have something new planned and they'll make their announcement soon and I hope you will support them.

Thank you to all current and past members. I started this club when I was just starting out as a designer and it gave me a huge boost of confidence to see people kniting up my designs. My career has grown immensely since then and I'm thrilled to be able to do what I'm doing and I'm sure it's a lot due to Sockamania members giving me the confidence to keep going.

Happy knitting,

Anni x
