SOCKtober Challenge! – KAL/CAL @ Michigan Fibre Studio
Oct 1 – Oct 31 all-day

For the month of October, all sock yarn (fingering weight with nylon) is 15% off! (does not include consignment or trunk show yarn)

How about SOCKtober Challenge???

SOCK and SHAWL Challenge!
Both challenges are using sock yarn.

SOCK CHALLENGE

How many socks can you knit or crochet in a month?

1. Does not have to be a pair. Each sock counted separately.
2. Sock heel turn to cuff must be a minimum of 5″
3. Sorry, no footie, children, or pet socks

SHAWL CHALLENGE

The Shawl challenge will be based on weight. The shawls will be weighed for yarn weight. You can do a one skein shawl that uses a 100 gram skein or you do a two color shawl that uses 2 – 50 gram skeins. Both entries would weigh the same. (Sorry, any accoutrements will be excluded. Weight is calculated on yarn only)

The deets:

1. To be eligible for prizes, you must sign up in store.
2. Yarn used must be sock yarn (fingering weight with nylon)
3. Yarn must be purchased from Michigan Fibre Studio
4. One project may be made using yarn from stash as long as it was purchased from Michigan Fibre Studio in 2019
5. All projects must be hand knit (sorry, crankers and machiners!)
6. All finished projects must be brought in to Michigan Fibre Studio by October 31st (it’s a Thursday, so we will be open until 9pm) to be counted, weighed, and photographed for social media!
7. You can do any pattern you want! Socks are by quantity and Shawls are by weight.
8. Please retain your yarn labels and provide the name of your pattern you used.

Any updates to these rules will be posted at Michigan FIbre Studio

We are a Ravelry friendly shop so please consider purchasing the pattern through us if you plan to KAL/CAL with us!

Purchase your supplies from Michigan Fibre Studio, and get 10% off everything. Yes, even your pattern! (Sock yarn is 15% off in October!)

Additional questions you may be asking: Can I make worsted weight socks? Absolutely! You will get 10% off your yarn but you will not be eligible for the Sock Challenge Prize.

KAL/CAL times are Thursday Open Fibre Night and Saturday Mornings. You can come in any time to knit or crochet along!

KAL/CAL times:
Thursdays during open knitting 7 – 9p starting October 3

About the Dyer:
Hi! I’m Deirdre Darr, the fangirl behind Fangirl Hand Dyed Yarns. I’ve been knitting for over 20 years. I’m married to my best friend, Ben. We have two crazy boys who keep me very busy when I’m not dyeing yarn or knitting. I’m located in the Les Cheneaux Islands area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula along the beautiful north shore of Lake Huron. I started in May 2018 and my original plan was to dye yarn for myself and maybe a few friends. However, after playing around and developing my first color, Early Morning, I was hooked! When you dye yarn to sell, you have to name the colors. My main inspiration comes from the band a-ha. As any fan of the band will tell you, a-ha is far more than just “Take on Me” (check out the “This is a-ha” channel on Spotify – shameless plug for my fave band). The reason I am unable to be at the Trunk Show is because I will be in Belfast, Northern Ireland to visit friends and family, but also to FINALLY see a-ha live in concert.
