how time flies! This is the third update post like this that I'm writing, and I can't believe that we're starting into the fourth month of our Collective. THANK YOU so much for your support - you keep this company going.
I had grand plans for more content for you for October, but one of our interviews is still pending - so hopefully you get double as much this month!
We're starting it off though with ...
... our first ever Collective Knit Night!
Vote now for your preferred date - it'll be on Zoom or GoogleMeets, with a very special guest! There won't be a recording available, so hopefully as many of you as possible can join.
In other news:
A Year of Socks Subscriptions are back!
I adore working on our quarterly Sock Boxes, and decided to bring back our A Year of Socks Subscriptions as a recurring option. Meaning: When you subscribe, you start with the current box, and then your subscription continues for however long you like!
Preorder: January Sock Boxes
Right in line with our updated Sock Box Subscription comes our January Sock Box that is now available for preorder. Take a look at the mood board:
For our January Sock Box, we've worked with...
... Ruth from Raincloud & Sage to bring you a cozy, woolly sock yarn 100% sourced, spun and dyed in Germany
... Dusana from Dusana Knit who put together a sparkly set of stitch markers
... the lovely team at Geruchsmanufaktur, a Lüneburg-based small business with handmade, sustainable scented products (and I'm not saying more because it would spoil the surprise!)
All the beautiful products in this box were based on our inspiration mood board for January! Think ice crystals with their unique, geometric shapes, long winter walks with the sun setting over a snowy forest, coming home to warm up and watch the beautiful winter night through the window.
I am so excited about this, and I hope you are too!
Winter Celebration Preparation
One big, big topic for me this month will be getting everything ready for our Winter Celebration (Dec 1 - 10). Are you signed up yet?
I need to knit a secret thing, finalize what's behind our virtual doors, ship the rest of the Winter Celebration Boxes (a few are still available) and then set everything up to go out into your loving hands. I can't wait!
Issue 9 Layout
My other big to do for this month is to get the layout for Issue 9 into a shape that I can send it over to our fabulous graphic designer Camille. About half of the patterns have been completed in test knitting already and are ready to go (thank you, Jess!), and I've just sent off the first edited photos for a proof to our new printer. I'm so curious to see how they come out!
