This club is still fantastic!

I cannot believe that this month I shipped out the sixth installment of my Fantastic Socks club — and guess what? It’s still fantastic! With each colorway I create, I feel as though I’m stepping even more into the Wizarding World. And as I went back through and shared photos of all of the colorways for the year over on my Instagram, I realized just how much I’m enjoying the journey. I would love to have you join me. There’s still a long ways to go before it’s over!

The club is officially called Fantastic Socks: a yarn club inspired by Newt Scamander. It’s a year-long club that began in April featuring colorways that bring Newt’s magical creatures to life. I had to choose only the most interesting and inspiring creatures to include in the club, and it was tough to narrow it down! We’re halfway through the club, and it’s been insanely fun dyeing up so much magic. Every month features a surprise colorway created by yours truly (Annie of Dreamdust Fiber Co.) and will be dyed on fun sock bases that may or may not be in my current line-up OR ever be available in my shop again.

I really hope you’ll come with me on this colorful journey into the magical world of Newt and company!

Who doesn’t love magical beasts and gorgeous sock yarns? Much less the two of them together? I guess a Nomaj. Hmm. But since you’re not a Nomaj, let me share my exciting club with you!

Fintry: an AnnieDot kit

I’ve fallen in love with Fintry by Knox Mountain Knit Co. and decided I would love to dye yarn for you to knit it with me! It will be a wonderful match for my SW DK base, and it will only require three skeins. If you’ve not had a chance to get your hands on my DK base, this is the perfect opportunity to. It’s so soft and bouncy, perfect for shawls and other neckwear!

The kit is only available for a week, starting with my shop update on Saturday, March 28th at 10am EDT, or until the limited slots fill! The most fun part is that we’ll be hosting a KAL with give-aways in my Ravelry group!

It’s called Fantastic Socks: a yarn club inspired by Newt Scamander! It’s a year-long club featuring colorways that bring Newt’s magical creatures to life, and let me tell you, my imagination is running simply wild with ideas. I will have to choose only the very best to share in the club, and it’s going to be tough to narrow it down!

The club slots open March 1st and run either through the month of March or until I reach max capacity, and the club packages will start shipping in April! Join me on this colorful journey into the magical world of Newt and company!
