After reading some of your comments, I thought I would add a little bit of information as well; I hope it is helpful. :)
These designs are all inspired by The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien--to be more specific, the books. There is a lot in the books that (obviously) was too much to be included in the movies- which means there are some design details that are book specific. But not so much that those who have seen the movie but not read the books will be confused.
There is so much material there for inspiration, that I am overwhelmed with ideas! From the places to the people to the people groups...there's just so much I could do with all that! I am working to make sure my designs will have "something for everyone"--not every design; but in the variety of designs and techniques used. You will not get bored working the same basic style with each sock in this club!
As to price- it may seem like a lot up front, but I think if you comparison shopped, you would find it quite reasonable. You have to figure that you would pay for a pattern, then pay for the yarn for the pattern (and in this case you are getting top quality yarn in amazing colors--really it's not expensive for what you're getting!), and then figure shipping.....times that by 6- it's a good deal. ;)
