Socks…every which way but loose!

Most, if not all, of you know that I am a bit obsessed with Crochet Socks. It’s not my fault, really. I am a crochet sock evangelist. It is in my blood.

These past two weeks I started a few college classes and I fell everyone about crochet socks. Everyone. I think I might become known as the ‘crazy crochet guy’ if I’m not too careful…but then…is that such a bad thing?

I didn’t think so either.

This week I get to announce the winner of our Seaside Shells Pattern from last week! It was Debbie Thurmond! Debbie, send me an email or Facebook message and I will get the pattern to you!

I also wanted to let y’all know about two exciting things! First, we have a new pattern coming next week. It is a toe up sock with a square toe, all over extended single crochet, a toe up heel flap, AND a long cuff, which makes these easy to fit to a wide variety of feet!

Theres something special about these though. I don’t make one penny from the sale of the socks. Not one. Every penny earned is then given. The cost of the pattern is a bit higher than normal, $5, but I wanted to be able to make as much money as I could on this fundraiser and I know that y’all will pull through!

All the proceeds will benefit Urbanpeak.org, a youth shelter out of Denver. Last year, we raised enough money to buy 1800 pairs of socks for teens that are currently homeless. Most homeless teens have been abused by family members or others. No one chooses homelessness over a happy home life.  If you want to learn more about the statistics, click here.

Socks are one of the most needed items in shelters. We can show these teens that someone out there is caring about them, when the world seems to be against them.

 

I know what you’re thinking…why not just make the socks for the young men and women and send those? Well, that doesn’t often work. The socks just don’t last as long as commercial socks and while the gesture is appreciated it is not a practical way to look at the situation.
So, click here, to preorder the pattern, it will be released in full next week! Share with your friends, spread the word, let’s raise as much money as we can! The more money we raise the more homeless teens we will be able to help!

Lastly, I wanted to let y’all know that Rohn Strong’s Crochet Sock Club is going strong! We’ve had THREE designs (one the first month, and two the second) uploaded and people are loving them. If you would still like to join, click here, and you’ll get a few dollars off the retail price!
Thanks y’all!
Have a great week!
Rohn
