Socks galore and our May winner!!!
But enough about me. Let's talk about you!
Lauren finished some Ribbed Lace Socks That Rock.
Dene has some late-entry April socks - she knit up a total of 31 pairs of charity baby socks but didn't get a chance to tell me until now because, sadly, a friend of hers lost her fight with brain cancer. She also has some May socks - Opal Dreamcatcher socks and her Sockapaloooza socks. And her June socks are just in - Cedar Creek socks from the Socks That Rock club. Whew!
Kristy finished some generic stripey socks that she found very entertaining (and so do we!):
Elizabeth's got some Embossed Leaves.
Amanda's got Mardi Gras socks on a road trip.
Roberta's got some River Rapids socks (her 11th pair of socks so far this year).
Johanna's got some Falling Leaves and they are just SO pretty.
Carol's got some Hederas.
Leah has some fair-isle argyle socks and a great Subversive Cross Stitch sampler (so cool).
Jenni finished her Step-Dad's socks. She has a brownie point pair, too, but she was a bad girl and didn't post a picture of them, so she can't have it yet...
Manda has some Bi-Color socks.
Adrienne has some secret Little People Socks that are too cute.
Pixeldiva has Sockapaloooza socks.
Kris has Pomatomuses.
Erica has some stripey afterthought-heel socks and a REALLY cute baby.
Persnickety Knitter knit up some fabulous socks out of some gorgeous handspun yarn she received as a gift. Yummy!
Stariel knit some Opal Zebra socks that she had to give away due to smallness caused by lack of yarn. Doh!
Shelley knit up some Lichen Ribbed Socks.
Jennie knit some Sad Socks (sad because she can only get one of them on).
Jessica made some cashmere socks. Mmm, cashmere!
Living Lakeside finished some Fuzzy Feet but you'll have to scroll down past all the fleecy (and subsequently de-fleeced) animals to see them!
Nelda knit her son some green socks.
That's it for the May socks, and we have a few early June entries.
Quikeye made some Evening Stockings for a Young Lady. Gaw-jus!
Lolly finished some May Green Anklets just a little bit late.
Stariel finished some Lava Flow socks out of some mystery Chinese yarn.
Great socking, everyone! Now we will draw our May winner, who will receive this fabulous ball of Trekking XXL (generously donated by Zonda) as their prize:
And the winner is...Karen! Congrats, and send me your address so I can get your yarn in the mail.
I have a few more things to discuss before I FINALLY wrap this up and go watch Big Love with my hubby. First, I'd like to rally you Pacific Northwesterners to gather at the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene in a couple weeks. This is the biggest fiber festival on the west coast, and I've been getting so jealous listening to all the Easterners go on and on and on about Maryland Sheep & Wool and the NH Fiber Festival. Come on, you guys! Let's gather! I am driving a vanload down on Saturday, so if anyone wants to meet up and knit Saturday afternoon, let me know. No reason to let those East Coasters have all the fun!
Next, I wanted to let y'all know that I'm getting the final prize packages together, and they are going to be HUGE! I'm still looking for any last-minute donations, but we'll have at least two prize baskets and possibly a couple brownie-point prizes. I'm also going to draw for the signed copy of Knit Socks! amongst all you sockers who have finished a pair every month throughout, starting in January. Also, do you guys want to continue with Sock-A-Month 2? I'm having a much better time with the updates when I only do them once a week, and if you guys are having a good time, I'd love to continue. Let me know what you think, and if there's interest, I'll start sign-ups in July.
And that's all she wrote! Happy knitting, everyone!
