I knew a contest would generate a lot of comments and I’m glad to have received every one of them. It was especially fun to read about everyone’s favorite sock pattern. Turns out there are a lot of us who like a “plain vanilla” sock and I think that’s a very good thing. The Monkey Sock pattern was mentioned many times and certain designers, like Cookie A. and Anne Hanson came up over and over. Some of you have excellent taste and chose my Picot Edge Sock pattern as your favorite.
Only one of you, however, can be a winner (I always want to say wiener, you know) and this time our winning number, as chosen by the Random Number Generator, is #56. Commenter number 56 was Susan, a long time friend and occasional commenter – perfect. Congratulations, Susan! I hope you’ll love your skein of Woolen Rabbit Sock Yarn.
As for me, I’ll be knitting with this:
A pretty cake of Sunshine Yarn superwash merino in the color Fades Away.
The colors remind me of the blue ocean and sunset filled sky on Cape Cod so they will be perfect for my vacation knitting.
And we won’t talk about how the name Fades Away is reminiscent of what my summer is now doing.
