Sock Kits

September was the month for sock kits. I received 5 kits so here are a few quick pictures of them.
Kit 1: From Woolgirl Sock Club, Butterfly Kisses. The yarn is from one of my all time favorite dyers Zen Yarn Garden in her Serenity 20 a merino cashmere blend can you say sooo soft. 2 patterns Flutterby socks by Debbie O'Neill and Butterfly Tattoo Scarf by Renee Strouts. Note cards by Carol Wilson. A butterfly tin, 2 butterfly stitch markers, a post-it note holder and a butterfly cutout which was seeded. A great kit.

Kit 2: From Woolgirl in fact they are all from Woolgirl. This was from her Charlie Brown series, "There's a Doctor in the House" featuring Lucy. She is one of my favorite Peanut's Characters it's here crabby cynical nature that reminds me on me. The way she pulls out the football on Charlie Brown. Her fear of being licked by Snoopy. But most of all she is a strong person, giving her time to give out advice for 5 cents. Now tell me who does that anymore. So here is what we got: Yarn from Wool Candy. The pattern by Claudia Eisenkolb, a Lucy knitting bag, 2 stitch markers. An itty bitty tin ,snoopy post-it, a Lucy journal, a key chain and bubble gum. Over all I love this kit, one day I will knit up the yarn.
Kit 3: Is from the Alice in Wonderland Series: Caterpillar, The yarn is by Miss Babs, need I say more I love her yarn and the colors she comes up with. 2 patterns Who are You? sock pattern by Cindy Abernethy and A Very good Cowl Indeed by Liz Alinante, she designed the Traveling Women Shawl. A cute clutch to store you needles, a glass key chain, a felted mushroom, stitch marker from Wee Ones, a solid wood tiny box, just to store little treasures. Some yummy stash teas and a licorice pipe. To see more picture go to my flicker page.

Kit 4: Now this is a fun kit "Black Cat". What kind of memories does a Black Cat bring to mind. The yarn is by Pico Accuardi in Negro con Rojo, pattern "Spook" by Christina Wilkins. A project bag with a black cat, tissues with a black cat and a cloth tissue holder in a Halloween theme. A black cat tile that cam be worn as a necklace, a black cat stitch marker, black cat post-it notepad and a cat candy yummy.

Kit 5: She Rides Again. I sure you can guess what this kit is, right The Wicked Witch. This kit was an other great one. The yarn is from Curious Creek Fibers, Elphaba's Revenge, I love the green and black mix of this yarn. Revenge of Elphaba sock pattern by Sarah Wilson, this is a cool pattern with a cable running around the ankle. A triangle walk and knit bag, mini note book, a mini slider tin, a Wee Ones stitch marker, a l"Life's a Witch and so am I" post-it pad, a wicked witch pendent, a broom ornament and a magnet. I almost forgot candy.

Kit 6: The Lollipop Guild. A fun kit with lots of color. The yarn by Sunshine yarns in Lollipop Guild. The pattern is designed by Liz Abinante Lollipop. A cute bag depicting the Lollipop Guild and Dorthy, lip glossy in a lollipop, a tile of the guild, and once again the cutest stitch marker by Wee Ones in the shape of a lollipop. This kit reminds me of a lollipop that we can in the kit.

Kit 7: This is the last one for Sept. Divinely Inspired by Cupcakes. The yarn is by Dashing Dach in a "Cupcake: Divinely Inspired" 500 + yds. 2 patterns, knee socks designed by Jane Robbins and Hello Cupcake Cowl by Christina Wilkins. A cupcake knitting bag and a key fob. A cupcake pin cushion, a Cupcake pushpin, a stitch marker from Sunneshine stitch markers, a cupcake lip balm, cupcake postcards, and a cupcake recipe, which I want to try.
All these kits are wonderful and if you ever get a chance to get one do. Woolgirl Jennifer Jett puts so much thought and care into each and everyone. If you ever want to see more of Wee One's Stitch markers please do. She makes each miniature out of polymer clay. Every item in her shop is completely unique, and hand sculpted.
O.K. I've rambled on enough got to run.
Happily knitting, Bye.

I can't believe they're all from Woolgirl! I'm terrible at picking out gifts so it's hard for me to imagine how she can create such wonderful kits (and so many of them). Thanks for sharing them, it was fun to see all the variety. Not to mention the beautiful yarn!
