Self-Indulgent September KAL on Elliebelly! (And a KAL Yarn Givewaway)

We are knitting Soxie for our September Knitalong on the Elliebelly group.

Soxie is the perfect pattern for Self-Indulgent September — a quick knit with simple cables and style. And, whether you fly a lot like me or have cold floors in winter, Soxie is something you'll be reaching for all of the time.

It's simple and you are welcome to knit with us whether you are currently an Elliebelly Group member or not.  We like newbies and offer lots of support! Join the KAL here.  The KAL sign up thread/rules are here.  The pattern is knit for a worsted weight yarn, and you are free to knit with any yarn, although we'd like to see this one knit up in Elliebelly!

To make that a little bit easier for those of you whose stash is running low, I'm doing a quick giveaway, for one skein of Elliebelly Pixie, a superwash worsted Merino that is perfect for this pattern.  Leave a comment below telling me why you'd like to use this yarn for your Soxie's and we'll have a winner pulled Wednesday evening (yes, that gives you 48 hours from now to enter the givewaway).  Make sure you include your Ravelry name and email address with your comment so I can track you down!  

There will also be a bit of yarn available here on Thursday and Friday to help those of you with no/low Elliebelly stash, for those of you who don't mind spending a little bit to help defray the cost of the yarn and shipping.

Good luck and happy knitting!

  1. I would live to win this yarn. It’s a beautiful rainbow and I’m loving rainbows. I have two hard fought for rainbow babies and looking at these slippers made from this yarn would put a rainbow on my face every time I look down.

  2. I would love to win some of your yarn for the KAL. Its 80 degrees out here now and I’m getting ready to go do some knitting but I just had to put some socks on first! Even in the summer heat my feet are always cold. I rarely knit for myself and I’ve never made socks but I enjoy cables and it looks like a fun pattern. Pretty yarn would definitely motivateee to complete something for myself.
    Thanks for the chance!

  3. I’d love to use some Pixie Superwash for my Soxies. I had a skein that was dyed years ago, as you hibernated your store (I still refuse to use the word closed …) and I ended up selling it in a destash for funds craze. I still regret that!! 🙂

  4. I’ve got cold feet right now and soxies are on my list of must dos. I’d love to win a bit of yarn to try out this pattern!

  5. I welcome the chance to knit Soxie’s with Elliebelly yarn. I’ve never knit with Elliebelly before. My Tavelry name is StormyMonday

  6. I would love some cheerful rainbow yarn to knit my soxies up in….something to make me smile every time I take a peek at my feet and it would be a lovely indulgence to knit something special for myself (especially since I am expecting and my knitting queue is going to be full of baby items pretty soon). My ravelry name is ewal9883…

  7. I just read that the northeast will be hit by a polar vortex this winter. Still not entirely sure what that means but after weather events like sandy and snowmaggedon, I think I can confidently assume it won’t be good!
    So I need to make these socks. And rainbow yarn would be the perfect visual distraction for this wearer and all jealous bystanders!
    Thanks for the fun chance and KAL!

  8. I’d love to knit my soxie’s with your gorgeous yarn! This is one of my favorite colorways that you do. It’s so bright a cheerful and perfect for those dreary winter days.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Shaine aka Shaineinok just about everywhere.

  9. I love this bright yarn! I think it will help to make me smile if I knit some Soxies to wear during the winter (when my depression usually deepens).

  12. I’d love to make a pair of soxies with this yarn because I can wear them around my house and the dirt will be camouflaged in all the bright colors, so I won’t need to worry about sweeping up. Less cleaning equals more knitting time! (Dizmissliz)

  13. I’ve been working so many hours lately that I need an instant gratis knit. And a drink…

  14. I’m in for the KAL! I’d love that skein to use, I’m currently rainbow-obsessed and have never had the privilege of an EB rainbow. 😉 I’m still sad I never got Alphabet Block fiber.
    Rav name: Leimarie

  15. I can’t resist entering an EB giveaway. Will lightning strike twice?? A girl can certainly dream! And then, she can hunt down her HC password… signed, EB-crazy ShellBelle76.

  16. Would love to knit up this lovely yarn. And, those soxies look amazingly warm – perfect for the coming cold weather in my old drafty farm house! Rav name: Starr5678
