On the 6th Day of Sock Yarn, Simply Sock Yarn gave to me...
a spankin' new Malibu Tote!
To have a chance to win this stylish bag made by Run Run Run from recycled pop bottles, simply andwer the following question in the comments below:
How many pairs of socks do you estimate you've completed in 2012? One? Twenty one? Are they hand knit or crocheted? Or have you taken up machine knitting as well? If you haven't knit any socks at all this year, why not?
When I give it some quick thought, I think I have completed three pairs so far, though I did also do a few single socks for displays as well. At least, now that I have a storefront to decorate that's what I tell myself when I get Second Sock Syndrome, "Oh, this one is for display. At least until I decide to finish the second one." I finished a pair of Opal Van Gogh socks in th Sunflower colors, a pair for a knitting friend in Pac Man colors of Simply Sock Yarn, and I also completed my Sedona Sunset (Poste Yarn) socks for Halloween. I think I may have finished a few others that were started in 2011, and I'm half way done with my Christmas Island socks that I hope to have done by Christmas morning. So that will make four. Certainly not my most prolific year, but since the store has been so wonderfully busy, and I have a healthy baby boy to care for, I feel really good about getting those completed in addition to the few non-sock projects I took on.
In 2013 I'm looking forward to putting others first and knitting gifts for some of my knitting friends, my sons and husband, and maybe for my sister. I'm in the giving mood and I feel like I have a lot of people in my life who would truely appreciate my time and effort and I'd like to show them some fiber love.
