Today's the day! It's SSYC's 10th Anniversary! Hard to believe 10 years ago today I took the leap from environmental education to yarn shop owner. I'm so fortunate to have met so many wonderful knitters and dyers over the past decade and to run a business that not only helps to support my family, but many others. Today we're commencing the summer-long party with this fun kit. Details can be found here, and then go here to grab yours. As usual, the quantities are limited by the hand made nature of the goods. If you happen to miss out, I have two other kits coming in July and August that are just as collectible.
Let's also start off the party with a contest! Beata at Hedgehog Fibres wants six of you to have a skein of the Better than Tin colorway that she dyed specially for us for this kit. If you are buying a kit, you already get one, and you might as well enter the contest too and perhaps you'll get another one to knit a larger project.
To have a chance at winning one of the six skeins Beata gave us (learn about her here), play the role of a designer and tell me what colors you'd love to see put onto a skein of Hedgehog Fibres sock yarn. Do you want something bright and confetti colors? What about pale grey base with short bursts of blue and green? Describe the skein you'd love to see and you could randomly win! Heck, I might like your idea so much that I have it dyed for the shop (There are already some special edition colors in the works for this summer!). Just enter once and do so before Thursday, June 4 at 1pm EST. I'll e-mail the winners and announce here on the blog.
Sock below knit up by Vickie at Bird Leg Bags. I might have sent her the first skein last month as a little surprise and she did a beautiful pairing of the no-purl Monkey pattern with it (and she added that sweet picot cuff).
