The People Have Spoken

And, here is your chance at SOCK FAME. Yes, I've just coined the phrase.
This contest is all about the fact that I have some friends who really cannot believe how many sock knitters there are out there. Total disbelief. So, this is what we're gonna do.
From now until we hit the 10,ooo views mark, all of you are going to do one thing:
Send me pictures of EVERY SOCK you knit since last July.

I am going to put each person's socks in a post, just for them with a link to their blog if they have one. Yes, ALL OF THEM.

Then, when I have them all up I'm going to put your names in a hat and make a drawing. I will draw two person's names out of that hat.

Each person will get 4oz of my handspun sock yarn.

You must mail all your pictures to me at my email address with a name that you want used on my blog.
That would be knitfemme@aol.com

Sock on, People!!!

Dang! I wish I hadn't spent the last number of months working on large sweaters instead of socks...

Barbara said...

ok - my sock pics are on their way. I know that at least one or two pair are missing from the lineup - they left the house before pics were taken

Since last July? Darn, I only have the one completed pair!

The next pair is coming along...

Cool! I just sent you my sock pix; just three pair but I love them all. Somehow, I have acquired more sock yarn, so more are in the pipeline. Cheers, Michele

PS: I just put you in my blogroll!

Wow Melissa,
This is pretty impressive! Wished you told me you were going to do this last year. I would have secretly made many shocks.
