I have fallen off the fingering weight wagon...again. Despite my self-imposed kibosh on all self-striping sock yarn, I joined a three-month sock yarn club this week. I am choosing to characterize my slip up as stash enhancement because Quaere is one of my favorite indie dyers, and I stalk her Etsy store daily.
Unlike other clubs I have participated in, where there is a blind reveal, she has opted to share inspiration photos. Check these out.

Needless to say, I loved them ALL.
I’ve found that yarn clubs can be a mixed bag. While I do enjoy the surprise and anticipation around club selections, I appreciate my need for control even more. It’s the reason I cannot knit fraternal socks or the polar opposite colorways that seem to be so popular. My socks must match – from cuff to heel to toe. And knowing the colors that may inspire a club yarn makes the lump sum purchase easier to make since I know that I will love and use each selection. No destash sales here.
