Harry Potter Sock Club

Since I've had lots of questions, I'll post the information here as well.


WHAT IS IT?: A Harry Potter themed sock club
WHY?: I have had lots of requests for striping and other variegated colorways since the new book and movie are coming out next month. I cracked people, so here you go!
WHAT WILL I GET?: Just yarn. No patterns or extravagant extras. Two skeins will be variegated (think characters/animals/places), and 1 skein will be striping in whatever house color you desire! At least 2 of the skeins will be in the Soft yarn, one MIGHT be in the Twist.
WHEN WILL I GET THE YARN?!: The mailing dates are July 15th, either September or October 15, and either Nov/Dec. 15th! (The only set date at this time is July). Since I am getting married next month, and will be gone until the middle/end of August, I want to give myself some flexibility. I will let you know once I return when the set dates will be for the fall).
HOW MUCH? The cost is a flat $100.00 to those in the U.S. and Canada, $115 to those overseas.
WHEN DO I SIGN UP?! Now! Send an email to sunshineyarns@yahoo.com with your full name, email, mailing address and what striping house colorway you want!
WHEN DO I PAY?! Now! Once you send me your contact information, I will send you an invoice.
ANY QUESTIONS? Email me at sunshineyarns@yahoo.com

The socks above were knit by Rachel, using the Gryffindor self-striping yarn. She even made it into a little magical photo shoot... I love it!

Ooo, how fun! I'm not sure I can afford this right now, but it sure is tempting!

I'm working on a pair of (Monkey) socks right now using your "Phoenix" yarn. I really love the colors!

Dani - I mentioned the sock club on my blog, as a Rowanette I have sent a few girls your way who were seeking Potter themed yarns. I am so glad that you are doing this, I keep missing the self striping and am knitting my G socks out of LL Flames for a midnight Potter Party on the 20th. The next G socks I knit will be from your yarn - yeah.

I agree a Sock Club and a Wedding - you are a mighty force.

Hi Dani -- I just wanted to stop by to say Hi! and to say that I stopped in to BlackSheep Knits this last week -- and I saw your yarn there, so I asked if this was the shop where you worked. It was! Sorry I missed seeing you there -- it would have been nice to meet you. We live in Louisville, outside Bldr. Good luck with your big day coming up ... it's been almost 9 yrs for us, and I can't believe how the time has flown!! Take care -- Jenifer at jeniferknits.blogspot.com

Okay, first off, I am beyond excited to order your yarn...and I did it without being able to see pictures :) (My work computer blocks all photos on Etsy :(

Second, congrats on your impending nuptuals!!

Third - how in the world do you find the time to knit all these things, dye all that yarn and still work a "regular" job? I am jealous!

Fourth - I wish I could join your sock club, but I don't think Mr. Man (my boyfriend) would be very excited about me overspending my yarn allowance :) Are you going to do it again?
