Details, Schmetails

So you all want more info on the yarn club, do ya? Well tough! You can just sit there and ponder like the rest of humanity. And when you've guessed wrong, guess what? I don't wanna hear a peep! No running over to the Big 6 on Ravelry and raising a fuss on how disappointed you are because The Mean Girls Yarn Club didn't meet your expectations.

Well, what did you expect? WE'RE MEAN! Duh! You're just gonna have to sit there in your big girl panties and take it, and you're gonna like it, want to know why? Huh, how does it feel to want? Hello...Mean Girls Yarn Club. I think that sums it up.

First, I'll answer questions from the comment section:

1. Michelle:
Q. Who did the house REALLY fall on? Will the club answer that question?
A. Yes. Your mom

2. Blogless Weebil (What's up with that?)
Q. What? No rules about trading/selling/ebaying? Or is it just assumed that your clubmates in MGYC will put a hit out on you if you try to do anything of the sort? Because we will, you know.
A. Let me introduce you to Guido & Luigi. They're here to ensure that yooz guys don't even THINK about it.

The solution is very easy. IF a colorway isn't for you (and we don't see why it wouldn't. This is the MGYC, it's implied that you get what you get and you like it), anyhow... if for some reason you and your colorway aren't getting along, just follow these simple rules...
  1. First and foremost...NO WANKING ALLOWED!
  2. Email either Bobbie or me, and in 50 words or less inform us of your decision.
  3. We'll put the word out to your fellow members that there's an unwanted, unloved skein, ABUSED skein of MGYC yarn out there in need of a good home.
  4. We'll put the abandoner/adopter in touch with each other, and you all can iron out all the payment/shipping details to your little black hearts' content.
  5. If, in the unlikely event that no one wants your castoff, you can do with it what you will, but only after 6 months.
  6. If all else fails, see rule #1.
3. KittyRiver (another blogless wonder, WTF?)
Q. Any ideas on yarn weight?
A. Yeah, it weighs about as much as a skein of yarn...duh!

Sharky's Yarn Specs:
100% Merino Superwash Sock
440 yards/402 meters; 3 oz./85 g.
6-8 spi on US size 2-4

Knotty's Yarn Specs
100% Merino Superwash Sock
560 yards/512 meters; 4 oz./115 g.
8-10 spi on US size 0-2

The shipments will go out as follows:

June - Sharky
August - Knotty
October - Sharky
December - Knotty
February - Sharky
April - Knotty

And now from the forum boards:

1. Xen
Q. Will you be doing international shipments, and if so, how much would they be?
A. For all you international hoars (besides Canadian hoars, that is), PM, PP, DM or email Bobbie or me immediately. Basically, we're thinking of a number. If there are less of you than that number, there will be no extra shipping. However, if there are more of you than the number, there will be a small additional shipping charge added on to your membership..

Further clarification before you nice Canadians get your panties in a twist. No, we are not excluding you, though, we should on principal...cuz, you know, you're an entire NATION OF NICE. But no, we're making an exception, hoping that you all can tap your inner Mean Girl, and indulge her from time to time. We just don't consider you "international", so yes, Canadians can join, and no, it won't cost you hoars extra. Same goes for anyone living in Mexico.

2. Mehitabel
Q. And are you going to do the signups when I’m out of town and away from my computer??
A. Well, duh. Of course we are! First week of April...or perhaps the second...depending on how lazy and mean I am then. Even thought we should, we're not gonna go all Loopy or Sundara on you. We will give you all ample warning of at least, oh, an hour.

Any other questions? Good! I didn't think so.

Hello Everyone!

Dizzy Blonde Studios, in cooperation with House of Awesome is pleased to announce their very first yarn club...The Mean Girls Yarn Club. Well, you probably already knew the name of it, since it's the title of this blog. But I feel like being redundant, and since I'm mean, what I say, goes.

Feel like getting in touch with your inner Meanie? Do you want to consider yourself and elitest bitch and finally have a taste of what you've been missing by being a namby-pamby, rational, reasonable, nice girl? Well, tough!

Okay, just joking. Here are most of the details:
  • Sign-ups begin the first week of April
  • First shipment goes out in June
  • Shipments will go out every other month for 1 year
  • The cost: $150 for the entire year, payable either in 1 lump sum, or in three $50 installments. This includes shipping.
  • Membership will be limited to 50 people.
  • The colorways are to be club exclusives. Never to be sold by us. And it’s all super secret until you get your installment.
  • Feel free to guess to your black heart’s contents. There’s actually a theme within the theme.
  • Each skein will come with a little something COLLECTIBLE attached to the band.

Well, alright, so "pleased" doesn't really begin to cover how excited we are to be collaborating on this project. We've got all sorts of bits of fun in the works, so, for the latest in the breaking details check early, check often.
