Hello all you sock making people! I hope you’ve been having a good week making socks. Judging from this week’s blog updates, you’ve definitely all been quite busy!
Without further ado, this week’s Weekly Link Contest winner is….
April sent in a link to a pattern for socks that can be crocheted and worn in shoes when finished. This is apparently no small feat for crocheters! Here’s what April wrote about her link:
Knitters don’t seem to understand the conundrum we crocheters face when it comes to making socks. We want to play the sock game just as much as you do, but it’s hard as heck to find a good pattern. Furthermore, we want so badly to play with all the gorgeous sock yarns out there, yet it’s really difficult to find a pattern that calls for actual sock yarn. So many crochet sock patterns call for worsted weight yarns, especially the free patterns on the web (do a search–I dare you!). So when I found this crochet sock pattern that actually uses sock yarn, I was so happy. These socks will actually fit in your shoes, the way that socks are supposed to fit. Hooray! No more “slipper socks” for this crocheter!
April also mentioned that the crocheters in the group have been awfully quiet so far and I couldn’t agree more. So speak up crocheters! We want to hear from you too! And congrats to April for being this week’s winner.
Don’t forget to get your entries in for next week’s contest asap. This is your chance to win a really lovely prize, even if you don’t knit and crochet as fast as others in the along.
I’d also like to point out that if you are planning on entering the Most Socks contest in either division, please send out your e-mails for each pair of socks you complete as you complete them. So far only 2 people have entered the Knitting division and only 1 has entered the Crocheting division. We need 15 people to enter each division in order for the contest to run, so get your entries in now! As always, please feel free to e-mail me with any questions you might have.
For those of you in the U.S. I hope you are having a safe and Happy Fourth of July!
