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 12 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.

Cost: $35 which includes pattern, yarn & instruction.

This month is the "Master Coriolis" by Cat Bordhi
