Presenting the Magic Carpet Ride Sock Club!

Hold onto your edges; the carpet is about to take off!

YarnYenta and I are once again collaborating on a sock club, The Magic Carpet Ride!

Yes! A new sock club to begin in Sept, 2010! Shipments in the middle - end of Sept, Oct, and Nov! YarnYenta and I have joined forces to bring you socks and yarns based on Oriental Rugs. She'll do the designs and I'll do the dyeing.

The particulars:

3 months: Sept, Oct, Nov (middle - end of the month).
3 glorious new sock patterns designed by the inimitable YarnYenta!
3 stunning new rug colorways dyed by me.

Yarns? I have a lot to choose from and have not decided yet, but you know that they are all lovely because I wouldn't knit on them if they were not.

Cost? $86 for the, USA and Canada. Everywhere else is $90 (to cover First Class International shipment.)
Payment is done all at once, and not pay-as-you-go. I'll need payment by Sept 10 to make sure that I have enough to dye up the yarn.

Extra goodies? Nope. I don't like them, and don't send them, and anyhow, if it costs me to send them, then I have to add that cost to the club. We are a no-frills club, but we are sending you what counts: wonderful yarns and patterns!

Sign up: Any time from this blog and Etsy which is self-explanatory.

Payment is done all at once, and not pay-as-you-go. I'll need payment by the middle of September to make sure that I have enough time to dye up the yarn.
