A Pattern Giveaway.............
Here it is the day after Christmas already. I was talking this morning to my dear friend Kathleen (who's really like a sister to me) and we're both eager to start knitting and planning for next Christmas! First I need to "unclutter" my work space and then dig in.
This is also a good time for me to plan out the upcoming year and decide in which direction I'd like Tehachapi Sock Company to go. I love making socks (hand knitted and hand cranked on our antique sock machine) but I also love designing. Hopefully, I'll be able to do some more work for a few yarn companies, but I've decided that I'd like to turn our little sock company into a pattern company. Maybe with lots of encouragement from all of you, we can do just that.
This little "coffee sock" pattern is so easy and quick and makes the perfect last minute gift or stocking stuffer. It would be great to give along with a gift card to your favorite coffee house. I thought it would be fun to use as our next giveaway. So, if you'd like a chance to win this downloadable PDF pattern, just leave a comment on this post today, tomorrow or Tuesday. Be sure to leave contact info in case you're the winner. In fact, to make it even more fun, let's randomly draw two names this time. On Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010, I'll do just that. So good luck, and be sure to check back then, ok?
Now I'm off to straighten up this room and get busy with some serious cranking. Later, I'll put on a good movie and work on some hand knitted socks.
Enjoy your day and be sure to make some quiet time for yourself.
Til next time..........
