Sock of the Month Club meets once a month on the 2nd Monday from 6-7:30pm. The cost is $35 each month and includes a pattern, a skein of the finest of sock yarn and 1.5 hours of instruction. Here’s the tricky part so listen closely. You do NOT have to attend club meetings but if you do you’ll receive a free skein of sock yarn after 6 punches. Uh…ahem…I mean punches on your attendance card. The purpose of the club is to stretch and challenge sock knitters to new heights. You’ll be introduced to lace, argyle, fancy rib stitching, knee-highs, stockings and much more. We’ll announce the featured pattern at the beginning of each month. You may sign-up at any time. Heck. You can even skip a month or two. To join the SOTM Club you would have had to have knit socks previously.

The December club sock is the Lisa Ellis "Snowflake Fair Isle" sock.
