Yummy Yarn Studio Sock of the Month Club is up and running for January – March. The sign up sheet is ready for April – August.
I love the day after the storm. A fresh blanket of sparkling white snow lies on the ground with hints of grey in the shadows. The blue of the winter sky is amazing. I have been told that a winter sky is different from a summer sky because of the lack of humidity in the air. Even though I know it is cold out, I am taunted by the sun’s invitation to come out and play.
This was the inspiration for the first official sock of the month pattern created in January 2011. I had received a note from a supplier that the special “Sparkle” yarn was available and although hesitant to order a fancy yarn, I indulged my inspiration and was thrilled with the final product. The pattern starts with the picot edge, folded cuff. I love the way the cuff feels and looks and expect it can be adapted for many patterns in the future.

Sign up quickly for the club. The spots last time were all sold out.
I am headed to Make One Yarn in Calgary tomorrow with a basket full of yarns. I am sure Bess and Alana will be grabbing a skein of two to add to the shop inventory.
The Corner Cafe of Etsy fame is putting together a Prairie inspired yarn basket. Yummy Yarn Studio will be the feature yarn supplier.

River City Yarn in Edmonton will be receiving their order mid February so the central Alberta knitters will have a chance to touch and feel Yummy Yarn Studio Yarns.
It’s going to be a busy Month! I am off to England tomorrow and am taking the iPad with me so hopefully will be able to blog. Pictures may have to wait depending on if I can figure out how to download off of my camera to the iPad. I can do this with the iPod so my fingers are crossed. At the very least I will post a pictures may have to wait.
