WOW! Look what I found in my stash

WOW Look what I found in my stash!

I found this great club via La over at JenLa. I am hereby joining the Wow! Look What I Found In My Stash Sock Club. What a clever idea. I can do this. And I love that it's FREE (well, actually there is a cost but it's s sunk cost!)

The original name for the club was “I wish I could join a sock yarn club but I already have way too much sock yarn in my stash”. The shortened name would’ve been “IWICJASYCBIAHWTMSYIMS” which is a little cumbersome. So we came up with this dandy club of our own.
Here are the rules:

  1. Once a month, go into your stash.
  2. Find a skein of sock yarn.
  3. Take a picture of it and post it on your blog or just wave it around and go “WOW! Look what I got this month!”
  4. You get extra points if the skein is still in the bag or box you brought it home in.
  5. You get super extra points if the receipt is still with the sock yarn.
  6. You get quadruple points if you actually make a pair of socks out of that skein.
Go check out what the points get you, you'll want to join too...

Hee I love the idea of that club although I do belong to the STR Club. But I so need to work through my sock stash a bit. I just find some of the yarn I love so much I'm scared I won't do it justice or something.

Thank you so much for all your nice comments -- you made my day. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who's struggling. I know that isn't true, and yet it is my nature to feel incompetent, it seems. Sometimes I even feel like I'm a poseur at knitting! Then I shake that off and realize how hard I am on myself. Thank you again, it's so nice to feel encouraged.

Now that you're on Ravelry, you DO know there's a WOW club group, right? I'll send you an invite.

Yay - thanks! I am still working through all the groups on Ravelry and hadn't found this one yet. This is exactly the sort of encouragement I needed.
