Sock in a Day!
Hello everybody. Today is my blogiversary--the first anniversary of those first two awkward posts. It's been quite a ride! I had every intention of marking the day with a bunch of fabulous shots of my finished Venezia, which is funny considering that IT IS FINALS and I have no time to finish and photograph Venezia as well as she deserves. Anyway. Look for that later this week.
So, in lieu of that, let's talk about the Sock in a Day Challenge!
Sock in a Day Challenge--Rules and Signups
I want to knit a sock in a day. The Yarn Harlot did it, several days in a row, so why can't I? I want you to join me in this insanity!
Here are the Rules:
-Email me with your signup info (below) if you want in.
-Join our Flickr group if you're a Flickr type person. (so, no blog required!)
-The Challenge will last from Friday, May 11 to Sunday, May 20. Look, there are two weekends in there!
-Pick one of those days. You can take up to eighteen hours.
-If you don't think you can handle it all in one day, you may work on your sock for a total of eighteen hours during the Challenge week.
-Those who will insist on knitting two-at-a-time can have two days, but do please sleep at some point.
-You can do any kind of sock you want, yes even worsted-weight ankle socks. But what's the challenge in that? US 1s for me, baby! (I would kind of prefer no baby socks or the keychain-sized ones. Sorry, but it's my party.)
-When you're done with your sock post it on the Flickr site and I'll enter your name in a random drawing for a fabulous prize--two adorable little socks on a string, just like the ones I gave AuntieAnn recently. Except I'll give you the pick of all my leftover sock yarns, how's that sound? (I know, I'm cheap. But I promise you they're really cute.)
Interested? If so, email me at everwhelmingliz at gmail. Tell me:
-Your blog address, if you have one
-What you're knitting, if you know yet
-What day you're knitting on, if you know yet, or what other arrangements you'd like to make.
I'd love any additional input you guys have.
It's on my calendar! Is it on yours?
Update! As of 9am we have eight participants (including me). I'm so happy to have some company! Also, Clumberknits has made us a pretty picture. Does anybody know how to make a button? You can probably see from my sidebar that I have no idea how to use them >_<
