Plus discount codes and of course, sweeties. This box actually had a stick of rock in there because obvs that is what all the mermaids prefer.
A HUGE thank you to those who purchased a box. A BIG thank you to all of you who helped spread the word, showed an interest and provided me with support. I have received so many helpful tips, and so many lovely wonderful messages from the IG community. Thank you for being my cheerleaders. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I have blogged about the HGDC Sock Box launch here and spoke about in in Episode 1 of the HGDC Podcast here.
The listing for the second HGDC SOCK BOX is now active and the theme is ‘Evergreen’. Think idyllic winter scenes, fir trees and frost. Gold sparkles and festive magic.
You can buy your HGDC Sock Box in Evergreen, here (take advantage of the Christmas reduction).
Pre-me knitting socks i’ve always been a sock addict. I love buying quirky patterned socks from Primark or TopShop. If I haven’t brought you socks then obvs you are not part of my day one crew. Sock gifting is how I show my love. Socks cheer me up. Socks are bae.
Socks, Socks, Socks!
I want socks for every occasion. Seriously. Birthday socks. Christmas Eve socks. Church Socks. Christmas socks. Boxing Day socks. New Year socks. And for every use. Reading socks. Straight out the bath socks. Sleep socks. Slipper socks. Boot socks. Dog walking socks. Socks, socks, socks!
Above all my sock goals is the want to have stacks and stacks of socks like these to choose from each morning. I am equal parts envious and inspired by #OperationSockDrawer posts on Instagram. I want to take part! So to get stacks means more sock yarn is needed…
HGDC Sock Box
I have so many sock construction goals too. Fish Kiss Lips Heels. Cuff down TAAT. Gobstopper balls. Self striping yarns. Afterthought heels. Sock receipes. Sparkle bases. Colour work. Knee highs. And don’t even get me started on the accessories. Immerse me!
This all got me to thinking. Imagine one little box which provides monthly forays into the wide world of socks. To new yarn, new dyers, magical colour ways, and gives tiny pushes to improve sock skills all thrown in with complimentary goodies (- stitch markers and soap and sock blockers!) all in one easy accessible and affordable place The HGDC Sock Box was born.
I first blogged about the HGDC Sock Box launch here.
Each month I hope to explore the sock world just that little bit more through my boxes. So much potential. This month’s theme is MERMAIDS.
I hope you will join me on this journey.
This months box RRPs at £35.59 + postage (on each individual item totalling £13.25) which means you make big savings to spend on a new Ravelry pattern, or to put towards next months box or just simply more sock for your buck. But hello, some items are exclusive to HGDC Sock Box anyways. Even better, the more boxes purchased the bigger the discounts for everyone and the more I can cram into them. BONUS.
October’s box has 120g of exclusive mermaid inspired hand dyed yarn, thats a full 100g skein and a mini skein too, a mermaid stitch marker, the club exclusive marker (HGDC Tribe) plus mermaid themed goodies all gift. Thats 6+ yarn related goodies wrapped and delivered to you in a little parcel stuffed full of surprise.
The monthly box will contain all you need to knit or crochet a pair is socks packed with themed goodies galore.
My box aims to bring together collaberations amongst the British yarn community. From the newbies to the well established. I hope to bring to you hidden gems and new yarn experience.
This month’s theme is MERMAID.
Hannah from @heyjayyarns is the indie dyer contributing 120g (one 100g skein and a 20g complimentary mini) of luxury hand dyed sock yarn in an exclusive mermaid colour way. It is so swoon worthy.
There is a beautifully intricate mermaid stitch marker included by a wonderfully talented maker.
There is also the exclusive HGDC Sock Box Club stitch marker which will not be for sale anywhere else.
If that isn’t enough there are also bonus secret mermaid themed goodies included in the boxes.
And just to top it all of, there are discount codes included by some of the overly generous box contributors for their amazing products.
All items included in the box are 100% UK sourced.
I HAVE DONE IT.
