Welcome to my 2024 Discworld Sock Club. Inspired by the Discworld book series by Sir Terry Pratchett throughout the year we will journey around the Disc meeting characters and visiting places. Each month the mood board will tell you our inspiration as well as give you a rough colour palette that I'll be dyeing from. 

This is a Quarterly listing for my Discworld Sock Club, and includes July, August and September, please choose whether you want it shipped monthly or held and shipped at the end of the quarter. Shipping is added at checkout, ship monthly will be the cost of three small parcels and hold-and-ship will be the cost of one small parcel. PLEASE NOTE with hold and ship you may not be able to avoid spoilers as I will be doing reveals on social media. 

July's Inspiration: The Great A'Tuin 

"The Turtle exists. The world is a flat disc. The sun turns round it once every day, dragging its light behind it. And this will go on happening, whether you believe it is true or not. It is real. I don't know about truth, Truth is a lot more complicated than that. I don't think the Turtle gives a bugger whether it's true or not to tell you the truth." - Terry Pratchett, Small Gods.

August's Inspiration: Sam Vines 

“It always embarrassed Samuel Vimes when civilians tried to speak to him in what they thought was "policeman". If it came to that he hated to think of them as civilians. What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge? But they tended to use the word these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit. Once policemen stopped being civilians the only other thing they could be was soldiers.” - Terry Pratchett, Snuff

September's Inspiration: The Luggage 

“The Luggage might be magical. It might be terrible. But in its enigmatic soul it was kin to every other piece of luggage throughout the multiverse, and preferred to spend its winters hibernating on top of a wardrobe.” - Terry Pratchett, Sourcery.
