Socksational Sock of the Week

This is the first installment of the Socksational Sock of the Week. Each week we will host a free sock pattern that you can download from the blog with a link to purchase it as a kit from Rosie's Yarn Cellar. I know it isn't quite July yet, but I'd thought it'd be nice to have it up for the weekend. And, this weekend all the sock yarn in Rosie's Sock Boutique is 20% off! Nifty, eh?

And don't forget, Sunday is the Socksational July Kick-off Party at Rosie's, 2017 Locust Street. All sock yarn is on mega sale and there are snacks and stuff.

So, without futher ado, click on the picture below for the pattern. And go here for details on the kit.
PS, the pattern doesn't have gauge listed because I am somewhat absent-minded (see here for details). But the gauge should be 7 sts/1" over pattern stitch. Happy sock knitting!

Socksational July!

(Stacy is painting the window, we haven't trapped her in a strange glass cage. Promise.)

July is all about sock knitting at Rosie's Yarn Cellar. Socks are perfect summer knitting: they aren't heavy, they pack easily, and they’re a breeze to whip out on a plane, on the beach or while waiting for the kids to get on the Super-Dooper-Looper. So here are the special events we’ve planned to help you fall in step:

July 1st, 12-5 Socksational July Kick-off Party!
All sock yarn and patterns are on sale. How much on sale? You tell us: the percentage off is double your shoe size. Wear an 8? Get 16% off your sock purchases. Find your largest-footed friend and drop in for refreshments, sales and prizes. Everyone wearing handknit socks will be entered into a drawing for a basket of sock-making goodies, including a gift certificate for a pedicure.

July Project of the Month:
Each week there will be a free sock pattern on Rosie's Knitting Circle Blog. Shipping is free on the sock projects and the free patterns will only be available during the month of July so download them while you can!

Yarn of the Week:
Each week a new sock yarn will be marked 25% off with free shipping. Check the website every Friday to see what's new!

Rosie's Sock Race:
Go to to join the Rosie's Sock Race anytime during the month (although the earlier the better). Join the blog, grab a button, and post your sock-knitting goal for the month. Some ideas: Create a team and race each other to finish the same project. Bet yourself that you can actually finish both socks. Cast on for one of those "Oh, one day I would love to make those" patterns that you never thought you'd have the time for. Everyone who reaches their goal by July 31st is entered to win a fabulous socky prize!!

Doing some good in the world

The world can be a big bad place. It's nice to see that everyone is doing their part to help out a fellow creature in need. Even when that need is completely bizarre.

Cecilia's Koigu Rambling Rows

Cecilia had the dark blue Koigu and she and Stacy picked out a variety of mill ends for the other colors. It really turned out great! Lucky baby.
