On the fourth day of sock yarn, Simply Sock Yarn gave to me...
Two skeins of Patina by our own Poste Yarn.
To have a chance and this prize, simply answer the following question in the comments below:
What was your favorite sock pattern of 2013? Plain ol' vanilla socks? Something more complicated? Or did you not knit a sock at all? If not, tell us why.
I knit plain ol' vanilla socks more than any other pattern. I use this one, and just adjust it for my own feet or the person I'm knitting for. I don't look at the pattern anymore, but it's the one I learned from a decade or so ago, so it's the one that I'm sure made the most impact on my sock knitting. Many of you swear by this one as well from Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Certainly a good choice (and a book you should have on your shelf).
The sock above is our Poste Yarn, Patina in the Hanging Gardens colorway. I knit the Embossed Leaves pattern for this- it's the second time I knit that pattern this year, and I just may have knit it a dozen times so far. Love it. I look forward to reading the comments about what your favorite socks were so I can add them to my to-knit list. You all are my greatest source in knitting inspiration.
