One World Moebius & Spoiler for Socky Socktopus Club

As promised, here is a picture of the Sivia Harding Elegant Arrows Moebius that I started on Inauguration Day. Knitters from all over the country cast on a Moebius for Peace during the inauguration. For more info on the pattern and yarn used, check here. Sorry I am not a better photographer!This is the beginning of my Super Socky Socktopus January 09 Club sock. The color comes up accurately in the first picture - it is a beautiful peppermint stick colorway. The yarn is pretty amazing - it is called Evolution & is exclusive to Chameleon Colorworks. It is mechanically stretched which changes the texture to a buttery soft hand that must be felt to be believed. I did not join this club until the last minute, but I am so glad I did.
Of course, leave it to mismalice to put together an incredible package! The pattern, written by our own Socktopus, Alice Yu, is for bed socks - the extras include a foot pampering set with a lovely peppermint/grapefruit scent. The scent permeated the silvery package and whiffs of the bouquet drift up to you as you knit away. I am waiting to treat my feet until my socks are finished. Again, I apologise for my photography skills.

I expect to receive my Rockin' Sock Club package any day now. In February, the Woolgirl Sock Club starts and then in March, the Woolgirl Embrace the Lace Club begins. Please feel free to hit me with a stick if you see me buying anymore yarn this year!

    You're really making me wish I could join the socktopus club too. It looks fantastic!
