Is there anything better than a sock club? Anything more exciting than a package of yarn showing up on your doorstep for three months? If there is, don't tell me, because I'll want to do that, too. I love sock yarn clubs -- there's that moment right before you open the package where you imagine that this yarn could be anything. It could be your favorite color. It could be that one base you've always wanted to work with. The possibilities are endless!

This is a three-month sock club. On or about the 10th of the month on May, June, and July of 2012, I will send you one skein of a colorway dyed specifically for this club. It might be semi-solid, it might be multi-colored, or it might be self-striping; it all depends on what I feel like dying that month.

People who have joined my previous clubs are aware of my usual rule - that I won't make that colorway available for sale for six months. However, recently I've started a twist: only one of the three colors dyed will, after six months, be available for general sale... and that colorway will be chosen by the members of the club. I reserve the right to state that a color is off-limits for voting (for example, if I do a self-striping colorway, that will always be club-only). HOWEVER, club members may always ask for custom orders of any of the three colorways from their club, in any base yarn. So if I do a purple that you just absolutely have to have in Worsted, to knit a sweater...? If it's not the color voted to be the one available for general sale, then you have to have been a member of the club that colorway was in to be able to order some.

Will there be swag? There will be, but as always I never really know what I'm going to send until the last minute (although I do try to somehow tie it into the colorway of the yarn, such as berry colored yarn and berry scented soap). If you could, when ordering, please tell me the following things in "Message to Seller" -
Do you have pets? What kind (dog? cat? fish?)?
Do you prefer coffee, or tea, or hot cider, or hot cocoa?
Do you have any nut (or other food) allergies?
Salty things or sweet things?
Are you sensitive to strong fragrances, such as in soaps?

I understand that the colors I choose to dye may not wind up being your particular favorite; I ask that you not sell anything you don’t like until after the six month mark.

All the photos shown are either previous sock club colorways, or colorways that I dyed specifically for my former yarn shop.

I have been dyeing yarn professionally for Hanks Yarn and Fiber since 2007. With the closing of the yarn store, I have begun bringing into HaldeCraft many of the colorways that I dyed under the "Perhaps Today is a Good Day to Dye" line, and am continuing to add new colors and bases of yarn. You can find stash and finished object photos of my yarns in the Ravelry yarn database; just look up "HaldeCraft HandDyed."

All yarn is dyed in a smoke-free, but not pet-free home; however, once dyed it is kept sealed in bins which cats and dogs do not have access to.
