I was so excited to get to talk with Janel at stitches West this year and hear about her new project. I have been an admirer of Janel's socks for years. (Remember when I went to stitches West and squeeled cuz COOKIE A came to see me in my booth? Well shortly after that, Janel autographed her book for me. If you do not have Eclectic Sole and Enchanted Sole, you need them. They are socks one can dream about.)
So you can imagine my sheer joy when Janel invited me to be apart of The Sock Report.
I had no idea what I would make when she handed me this amazing skein of orange iron oxide yarn, but I went back to the hotel and started playing with a traditional lace motif on a sock.
I even wound it right away using the hotel lamp shade.
The Sock Report is dedicated to all things fingering or sock weight yarn. We all know that sock yarn DOES NOT count as stash. (So instead of counting 4 rubbermaids the size of stemer trunks, I only need to admit to 2.5 of them) Sock yarn is amazing! I love it!
In honour of the amazing new Sock Report and my sock pattern Semadar, you can win a skein of sock yarn from my "Not Stash".
Since I leave for Warsaw in 2 days, the contest will run thru June 30th.
TO ENTER leave a comment on which pattern in the sock report is your favourite and what yarn you would use to create that item. Send a friend over and get another entry. Tweet this contest and tag the post #SockReport and get another entery.
