Woo hoo! It's that time of year! For the fifth time, we're celebrating the 12 Days of Sock Yarn at Simply Socks Yarn Company! From Dec. 14 through Dec. 25 you have a chance to win a special knitterly gift each day. Could be yarn, could be accessories, and it will definitely be awesome.
How can you join in? Simply visit the SSYC Blog every day from Dec. 13 through the 24th and answer the question in the comments section before the following day's question is post (the comments will be closed on that post once the next day is up). You'll automatically be entered to win the gift shown for that day. If you participate each day, you'll have a dozen chances to win (one chance each day). And yes, you can win more than one day!
You don't have to participate in any particular holiday to win anything- you just have to want some awesome free yarn or goodies. I'll post winners likely in early January, and you'll also get an e-mail if you are a winner.
Oh, and look, it's starts today! Let's begin this with something BIG.
On the first day of sock yarn, Simply Sock Yarn gave to me...
An Amy Butler Cara tote! Seriously. Yes, this bag is very expensive. But I think we should start this with the motto "Go big or go home" right? We have these in the shop right now if you want to come in take a look at all the lovely sizes and fabrics.
To have a chance at this awesome prize, simply answer the following question in the comments below:
What did you knit more of this year using sock yarn; socks? Or non-sock projects? If you knit more socks, share your fave yarns and patterns. If more non-sock proects, tell us about some of those.
I definitely knit more socks this year than anything else. I was too busy at the early part of the year (what with a baby in my life again), but as the cold weather approached, my knitting mojo seemed to come back with a vengeance. I have knit several pairs of Opal socks, one and a half pairs of Trekking XXL socks, one bulky weight cowl. One pair of Cascade Heritage Silk, one Poste Patina.... and I actually managed to put many of them on my Ravelry project page.... all in the later part of the year I also knit a Sockhead had in BMFA Socks that Rock, but I tore it out b/c I made it too big. Oh, and I made a hat for Henry hoping to make a matching one for James but it hasn't quite happened yet. Perhaps when I take time off at the holidays I'll find a moment to finish..... perhaps.
