Despite how disappointed I felt with my first long-term yarn club, I am taking the plunge again. I eased into the yarn club world when I was lucky enough to get a spot in the first round of the 2 Crafty Girls Yarn Club. The theme was John Hughes Movie Night and the club was two months long. The talented dyers behind the club are Dana from Unwind Yarn Company and Sarah from Another Crafty Girl. It was the perfect palette cleanser to get me over the disappointment of knitspot's Fall in Full Color yarn club.
The first month of the 2 Crafty Girls Yarn Club was dyed by Dana who was inspired by Duckie from Pretty in Pink.
The second month was dyed by Sarah who was inspired by the special effects in Weird Science.
Needless to say, when they opened sign-ups for the next round, I put my name in the proverbial hat. There are only 50 spots available so I'm just waiting to see if my name gets picked as one of the lucky club members. In case your curious, this round is Kevin Bacon movies. I KNOW!!!!
If I don't get selected, don't feel too bad for me because I have already been accepted in another yarn club. It's a fabulous yarn club. How do I know? SSK! The ladies at SSK that were in this yarn club only had wonderful things to say about it. Prepare to be jealous: I got into Tempted's Pin-up Beauties Yarn Club!!!! My pin-up name is Harvest Hellion.
On top of that, I am participating in the personal sock yarn club that Hannah from the Traveling Sock Knitter podcast is organizing. Basically, you look through your stash and find 12 skeins of sock yarn that you want to knit and you put them in bags. Then every month, you select a bag and make something with the yarn. It should be a great way to use up stash and I think having a place to chat about it, cheer each other on, and hold each other accountable will make me much more likely to stick with it for the entire year.
So, how about you? Are you in any yarn or fiber clubs? Are you not a club person? What's your deal, Lucille?
