Yarn Pirate Booty Club Shipment Update

I realized I haven't done a post with pictures of Booty Club shipments in, uhh... three months. I am still in that sock club and it is the only sock club I'm in right now. I tried to sign up for The Loopy Ewe one, but I didn't get in, and I'm okay with that. I do like getting the surprises in the mail, and I love the colors of this one, the different yarn bases and the good price, so I'll probably stick it out for awhile still... even though I haven't knit a single skein from this club in the, uhh, 7 months I've been a part of it. I'm hoping to change that soonish.

November: BFL Sock in Solstice

Yarn Pirate BFL Sock - Solstice

I like this color well enough, and I just used a BFL yarn for the first time recently, and loved it, so I'm happy with the base. I need to check Ravelry to see some knitted up pictures, but I'm hoping it might have a bit of a "semi-solid" characteristic to it, though I think that's wishful thinking. I did realize, however, that I have two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Socknitter's Spring Sunset which has very similar colors. So either one pair of socks will get knit as a gift (at least) or maybe I could trade that away, we'll see.

December: Merino/Tencel in Icicle

Yarn Pirate Merino/Tencel - Icicle

I love this. I don't normally by much blue sock yarn, but this really is lovely. And because of the shine from the tencel, Icicle is a very apt name. I'm hoping to find a really appropriate pattern for this - maybe something with snowflake designs? I've only ever knit up one skein of Yarn Pirate yarn, and it stripes (or pools) more than it mottles, but I think if I pick the right pattern it will still be okay without hiding the design.

January: Merino Sock in Kalamata

Yarn Pirate Fingering Superwash - Kalamata

I love this one, too. Not a combination I would have thought of, and though I hate olives, this is a perfect color with a perfect name. I want to find the perfect pattern for this one, too.

So there you have it. Three months of booty, all with very different colors. That's one of the things I really like about this sock club - I don't feel like I'm getting monotonous selections.

Maybe I'll have time for actual knitting content next week, though this post sort of represents my knitting style these days - accumulating yarn way faster than I can knit (or post) about it!
