Simple Pleasures

In February, Amanda from NH Knitting Mama Yarns contacted me to ask if I’d consider having my ZigZag Lace Pedi Sock pattern in her new yarn club offering. Oh, yes! Knitting is a simple pleasure, and Amanda knows it. Her new yarn club is a little different from most, in that there’s no advance commitment. There will be five offerings this year, and you decide if you want to order one of the club packages. You don’t know what’s in it, but you know it will be good! I love the thrill of a yarn club surprise. A Simple Pleasures package includes an exclusive yarn colorway (never listed before) and goodies centering on a theme.

This month, the theme is pedicures. Amanda knit up a sample in her sport weight yarn line (see below), and I added pictures of her socks to the pattern, and also added a toe option to my existing sock pattern. (If you bought the ZigZag Lace Pedi Sock pattern online, an update is coming through Ravelry.) Besides the pattern, there’s a really pretty sport weight yarn, colorway “Winter Buster” which is red, black and white, a project bag, red nail polish, emery boards, and a chocolate. Perfect for beating the winter blahs. If you’re on Ravelry, you can see the colorway here.

It was a pleasure working with Amanda. If you want to order a Simple Pleasures package, they’ll be on sale on the first of the months of May, July, September, and November.
