Sock Yarn Clubs

Do you belong to any sock yarn clubs? I currently belong to the STR group and Plucky Knitter. In the recent past, I belonged to Yarn Pirate. I'm not sure how I really feel about sock clubs, but I do know that it's nice to receive a package in the mail with sock yarn that other knitters won't be able to buy for awhile.

I have belonged to the STR group since almost the beginning. I missed out on the first shipment. I love their yarn and most of the patterns are nice, but I currently have so much of it and the club is getting pretty expensive. I'm not sure if I will rejoin for next year. I recently got the September shipment. The colorway is wonderful and I like that it is the lightweight yarn.

I do like the itty bitty hanks of yarn and the little gifts we also get with the shipment.
I joined the Plucky Knitter yarn club when she started it. Her yarn is very nice, but again, I have so much of it that I canceled after this last three months is over. I also recently got a shipment from her and I really like the colorway (Cat) and the yarn.

I recently signed up for the Unique Sheep's Color Co op that starts in November. I'm looking forward to this club because I didn't know about her last one and there is one pattern for a sheep washcloth that I am anxiously awaiting to purchase. It won't be available until November. Her yarns look really nice.
I also signed up for the Intentions Yarn club that starts in February. Violet of Lime and Violet fame is behind this yarn club and the yarn looks wonderful. She apparently had some at the Loopy Ewe and it sold out very quickly.
Last but not least, I joined the Sundara Yarn Sock collection. I love her yarn, but it is often hard to get because it goes quickly. By joining her sock yarn club, I am guaranteed getting the yarn. I picked the warm collection. We will see how it goes.
I really wanted to get in the Loopy Ewe sock club and the Wollmeise Sock club, but I missed out on both of those. I was really disappointed. But, maybe things worked out for the best.
So, what yarn clubs do you belong to? Let me know how you like them.
