It's almost here!

Welcome to the 2008 Woolgirl Sock Club! I'm so happy that each of you has joined us this year!

The first sock club shipment is set to be mailed out on April 14th (with international boxes being sent out this week), and we're right on target to ship on this date! I can't believe it's already here, can you?

I'm leaving this first club shipment as a complete surprise...which means, no clues this time around! I want you each to have the full element of surprise and the fun of opening your boxes without knowing anything about what's to be included. :) I can tell you this, though...I've had so much fun putting this first package together and can't wait to see what you think. I know you will love the yarn as much as I do. It's amazing to knit with...

A couple of details that need to be discussed before you get your first shipment...

1) Each shipment will have some type of contest included with it. You will see the first announcement of the contest in your club packages...but that same week that the packages are mailed out, I'm going to be announcing details of the contests on the blog as well. This should make it easier for those of you who are more internet oriented rather than "paper" oriented. I also want to increase activity on the blog this year, so I strongly encourage you to share your photos, pattern questions/issues, sock progress, etc on the blog this year. There will be huge benefits to blogging this year, let's just put it that way. More details about this to come...

2) You should see your name on the left side of the blog, and IF you have a blog, clicking on your name should link to your blog. If you see your name but the link does not work, please email me at jennifer@woolgirl.com so that I can make sure to accurately link your name with your blog.

Also, if your name is not listed on the left hand side of the page and it should be (as in, you are a member of the 2008 sock club), please email me right away so that I can get your name listed here.

3) Please be sure that we've received a payment from you for the sock club - otherwise, your package will not ship.

4) I will be posting on the blog pretty regularly (at least every other week) with contest information, pattern updates, club details....so, please be sure to check the blog for any current news.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts after the packages arrive next week! Thanks again for joining us!

I am so sad I will be missing the shipment since I will be out of town in Houston Texas that week. I know the package will only take less than 24 hours to arrive at my house and I don't get to see it till the 19th.

I have been checking the mail that last few days. I wasn't sure if you said the 4th or the 14th. Now I know it will be here next week. Squeeee!! I am so excited. Jen your packages always have some cute extra little swag it them. I think that is one of my favorite parts. I cant wait.
