First & Last 2010

It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks – we had our first Bloodlines shipment go out at the end of November (Bill Compton & Eric Northman colourways) and today the last of the Knit Love Club 2010 sock kit parcels were posted out.

It’s all a bit sad – I’ve had a great time this year with the KLC club – regular swaps, meeting members at Knit Nation, seeing everyone’s socks (and shawls! Jaq you know who you are! 😉 ). Here’s a little retrospective of the year’s socks patterns (minus the last sock, as it’s still under wraps until Christmas).

Next year will be really exciting – I’ll have my own line of yarns, which I’ve christened Sokkusu. Here’s the new logo for the belly bands.

And the Sokkusu mark:

The plan is to have Sokkusu-L (lightweight), Sokkusu-O (original, the high twist yarn) and Sokkusu-E (extra, as in extra cushy with cashmere).  All sock yarns, but each with their own personality.  More details next year.

And of course, Christmas is fast sneaking up on us. Amanda sent me a lovely little Christmas brooch – felted wool Mistletoe!

A little Christmas spirit

The Christmas love doesn’t stop there! You’ll recall I received a great parcel with handknit socks last week.  Well, I got a little carried away and signed up twice for the swap -once for hand knit socks, and once for a sock kit (ie yarn and pattern).  So number two arrived in the post today.

Thank you HJ! The yarn is Leith from The Yarn Yarn in the most delectable chartreuse colour. Fudge, chocolate, sock pattern by HJ herself, daisy seeds and very useful post it notes.

Today is Paul’s birthday – one more year to a decade milestone! Happy birthday Paul. Hope you are ready for some serious bowling tonight! We wanna see Turkeys!
