BLOOM! a new Mystery Sock Knit-A-Long! Welcome to Week 1!

Spring is for flowers, sunshine, and all things that grow and change. In honor of Spring, I'm hosting a KAL (knit-a-long), my first ever Mystery Sock!

 Bloom! Official MKAL pattern page!

The sock design will be released in 4 parts, 4 "clues" with one new clue a week. Those who joined the group and posted a picture of their intended yarn will receive the pattern for free. Those who want to wait and see if this pattern is for them, can still receive the pattern at a great discount. It's only $1 for the first week, $2 for the second week, $3 dollars for the third week and finally full price after the last clue is released.

The inspiration for this MOCK (Mystery Sock) is blooming Hyacinths. Hyacinth Jane was one of the names on my short list had Hawthorne been born a girl. I love nature names, and I'm often inspired by nature for my designs (or geek literature, or both..Peeta Socks were designed to look like wheat, but were inspired by the Peeta character from The Hunger Games).

Each week, I'll post some tricks and tips and advice here on my blog to go with the MKAL. I hope you can all play along. I'm really excited about this.

Oh, and there will be prizes. I plan on giving out mini prizes each week with a grand prize drawing to happen at the end of the KAL. I will be offering up YARN, and COFFEE or TEA and CHOCOLATE! as well as free prize sets of patterns, including copies of my new Everdeen ebook, which is about to be updated with a new mitt pattern to fill out the set and a plus size for the cowl!

So get your yarn ready, free up your needles, and help me welcome Spring as we transition into summer and knit up a fun pair of socks! Yay socks!
