2 Socks in 4 Days — We Are Nuts – Knit Talk 2011/07/21

Posted on 21, July 2011 by


Back on July 7th, I announced on Ravelry, Facebook (are we friends yet?), Google+ (if we aren’t in each other circles, let’s do it!), and Twitter (do we follow each other?) that Jennifer Wendell and I decided to console ourselves for not being at Sock Summit (again) by knitting ourselves a pair of socks during those four days. The catch? The only patterns that could be used had to be ones which Stephanie Pearl-McPhee made. Since then, the “Couldn’t Foot It” Challenge has accumulated over two dozen prizes to award to finishers — specifically 25 and counting. Four of these prizes are from the Yarn Harlot herself, and the others are by esteemed independent dyers with XRX tossing in the choice of a copy of “Think Outside the SOX” or “Magnificent Mittens and Socks” for those who finish “Pearls of Wisdom” or “Feather & Fan Socks” which are from the “Socks, Socks, Socks” book.

Who are the nutty people that are joining Jennifer and crazy me?
