Sign-up for the 4th quarter of our popular Sock Club now! The theme for this quarter is....A Poetic Touch!
Luscious florals, well-worn notebooks, romantic views and moody rooms - these are a few of the ideas and images that inspired the theme.To paraphrase Diane Ackerman, "Poetry has a way of lifting a feeling or idea out of its routine so that it can be appreciated with fresh eyes." We'll be focusing not only on poems, but also a few poets and the worlds they inhabited.
Each month, for three months, I will hand dye a unique colorway based on the current theme, on a sock/fingering weight yarn and deliver it to you.
You will also receive extra "goodies" each month. They'll be different each month, and might include things like:

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
