Whew! 2021 is over and done with right? Now there’s a new year and new fiber goals for us all. What are my fiber goals you ask? Well, personally I have a goal of knitting 12 pairs of socks this year. In 2021 I started doing yoga, so one pair will be yoga socks. Also, I’ve always loved DK weight socks before DK weight socks were cool so I’ll do another pair of those.
At the start of January we acquired a new packing room so that I can hopefully getting my living room back (I’m sure you other makers and small biz owners out there understand what I’m saying). Dave’s been helping me set up the room. We haven’t done any video on it yet, but I may take some tomorrow. Which leads me to…. It’s packing week! Yes, that’s right the Sock Box is being packed as we speak. Master-Skein-Twister-Dave has been busy setting up the room plus washing, drying, and twisting yarn while I recovered from bronchitis. So if you don’t like the January colors please direct all complaints to Master Skein Twister Dave (LOL!). 😉
And all the goodie bags are packed with treats from Stash Tea, Bronze Shepherd Studios stitch marker, and rose scented Happy Hands lotion. The add a bag, add a skein, or deluxe members are also receiving a hand poured essential oil candle from AromaBliss Apothecary. Let me know if you want to have more from Aromabilss.
Keep an eye out on YouTube and IGTV for packing and the big reveal video.
I’ve already started dyeing February’s sock box yarn. I’m dyeing the minis now. And I think they will be a good contrast to the main skeins color.
Kimberlie_Makes has knit up a hat for January’s NOT sock box And I’ll give you a hint ( deluxe bonus gifts are pom poms) and the theme is Snowbirds.
Also, BOLO so you don’t experience FOMO just ICYMI (as the Southern Skeins Kid would say) - meaning, keep an eye out for news about another upcoming Southern Skeins + A Lovely Blunder Knits KAL coming soon.
Night all, and don’t drop too many stitches!
