On the second day of sock yarn, Simply Sock Yarn gave to me...
four skeins of our exclusive Simply Sock Yarn, Solids! To have your chance at winning four skeins in your choice of color/s, simply answer the following question in the comments section below:
What is your favorite hat pattern to knit with sock yarn? Share with us the pattern that you want to knit over and over so that we too might be inspired. Or, if you haven't knit a hat yet with sock yarn, tell me why.
I have knit one Sockhead hat so far, but I can tell that I'm on the verge of addiction just like my knitting friends. Shop-manager-Heather, has knit six of these so far, and I can think of at least five other friends in my knitting group who have knit the same hat this year. I knit mine in Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks that Rock Lightweight (which we currently sell in the shop and soon online too), but I tore it out b/c I made it too big. I've already chosen two other colors that I want to knit it in again, and at least three of my friends have knit theirs (for example this, and this) in the same yarn with awesome results. Madelintosh Merino Light and Tosh Sock are also great choices. Basically any fingering weight sock yarn that you love the color of would make a fetching Sockhead hat.
