Random Stuff

I can’t believe I won!

This year, again,


is hosting the Summer of Socks! For those that aren’t familiar with it, you cast on and knit socks throughout the summer, and get entered in random drawings when you finish socks. The big prize is the Vacation Photo prize at the end – you take a vacation photo with a sock in progress, and the participants vote on the winning photo. This year it is all taking place within Ravelry – visit the link to the Ravelry group over on the side-bar to sign up. I can’t wait till tomorrow to cast on my socks!! I have several patterns and yarn already lined up. 🙂


So, anyway, she had a blog button/banner contest, and I said “what the hey” and designed a little button and banner – never thinking I had a chance at winning!! And guess what? I won!! Woo-hoo! So here are my winning button and banner:

And I won a lovely package with sock yarn (of course!) and a bunch of other goodies! I’ll post a picture when I get it in the mail. I can’t wait!!
If you’re in the Summer of Socks group – feel free to copy the banner and button and use them on your blog!
Happy Knitting everyone! Get your needles ready for tomorrow!!
