Have a nice long weekend everyone and yarns will be on their way on Tuesday, September 4th since Canada Post doesn't move their mail on Saturdays and Monday is Labour Day!
Can you feel Fall coming? October's yarn should reflect the season that's coming I'm sure! Enjoy the new yarn base too - I started knitting an "oops" skein from the batch of ART WALK yarns and it's very "squooshy" (if that's a word) and has a nice twist to it too! Would love your feedback on it as it's a brand new yarn base from a new supplier and different from the other merino/nylon yarn I have been using.
See you next week!

I managed to finish one of my socks and hope to cast on for the other soon but I really badly suffer from SSS just because I'm so busy with dyeing yarn. Once I see how the yarn knits up, I want to see how the next yarn knits up....LOL I do like this pattern though - very easy to do without the heel and when I put it on, it doesn't seem to slide down at all - however, personally, I think I like the construction of a heel better overall just for fit and for wear but for mindless knitting, this was great!
How's everyone else doing? Johnna - your socks are beautiful and Donna Lee - your monkey socks are looking fab so far!
Welcome to all the new members and since September 1st falls on the weekend, yarns will mail on Tuesday, September 4th (Monday the 3rd is Labour Day!) - Canada Post doesn't move their mail on weekends or holidays which works great for me - 3 more days of getting everything ready for you guys! As usual, you will receive a shipment notice through email if you paid by Paypal.

Plain old, pretty as they are, socks but if you look a little closer:
I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

Ahhhhhhh, blues and blacks and yellows....they will make for some lovely yarn colours and will be perfect for our transition into the coming Fall months! Now to choose the yarn base for this coming month...we shall just see what my yarn supplier has for me! And this month will be a surprise but I'm hoping for something fab from my suppliers. Stay tuned!

Suggestions will be taken until Friday, August 10, 2007 and shortly following a poll will be posted for everyone to vote and choose their favourite(s). Majority will win!
Comment away everyone - we had some fabulous suggestions in the comments already when this idea was brought up before.
Also, some questions have been asked about when to post photos of August's shipment. How does the end of this week sound? I'm hopeful that the majority of the clubbers will have their yarns by then as it'll be 10 days shipping time.
As always, thanks everyone and soon we'll be thinking about September's colours so stay tuned!
