September Sock Give-A-Way



September has arrived and that means another pair of women's socks will be given away. Hand cranked socks of course! Here's how it'll work: just leave a comment on this post between now and the end of the month. (one entry per person please) If for some reason you have trouble leaving a comment, you can email me and I will place your name in the hat. On the first day of October, 2010 one name will be randomly drawn. I will email that person and ask what size they would like (I will pick the pair of socks to be given away) and mail them their prize. I'm not sure if this is more fun for me or you!

Doris (our antique sock machine) has been smokin' cranking out this sock order. Some days I'm able to crank 4 socks, some days 3 socks and some days just 2.

So, good luck with our next sock contest.

Have a great, great day.

Can you knit with recycled yarn on your sock machine?

I'm knitting with dpn and circular needles. The trouble with recycled yarn is seldom getting 100 grams of one long string! On the plus side, the content is often more luxurious than I could afford to buy new.

Love the photo of your machine. Looks like millions of teeth. But what a lovely finished product!

I found this blog via ravelry and I'm fascinated. I've never seen a sock machine, that's really cool. Looks like I've just added another blog to my morning reading... I'd love to win a pair of such special socks!

I love see the picture of the 60 pairs of socks on hanging on the clothesline. I hang most of my clothes on the line, too. I love sheets hung outside in the bright hot sun. That is a interesting looking sock machine.

What a fabulous old sock machine! Looks like she still works very well.

I love Doris! I think she's great! Being a hand knitter, I can only imagine how fast you can make socks on her.
