November Sock Give A Way...........................
It's time once again to start a new give-a-way. Shall we do another pair of women's hand cranked socks that were made on our antique sock machine, "Doris"? I say yes! If you'd like to participate, please leave a comment on this post and then I'll draw one lucky name on Dec. 1st, 2010. That's when I'll send them an email with the good news and ask which size they'd like and send them off a wonderful pair of socks. I get the fun of picking which ones!
Yesterday I wore a pair of Doris' socks and asked myself, 'why don't you make yourself more of these?' Everytime I looked down at my feet, I just smiled at the fun colors that I was wearing.
I know this blog is about two things really - living off the grid and knitting. And I realized that I don't show pictures of a lot of my projects and thought maybe I should explain why. Obviously, you've seen lots of the socks that have been hand cranked. But, on the side, I do several designs for yarn companies. Until they release those projects for the public, I'm not at liberty to discuss them let alone share pictures. I hope you understand. If you'd like to visit our Ravelry site (shown in red at the right), some of the designs from former publications are shown there.
Today I'm working up some charts on Adobe Illustrator and then hope to work on my grandson's knitted green monster! As that progresses, pictures will be posted!
I wish you all a great, great Tuesday and hope once again that you'll leave a comment for this month's pair of socks.
Until next time........................
