Who to win a basket of sock goodies?

If you enjoyed March Hat madness or if you missed all the fun, please join us for a new competition of making socks.  This time you will not be on a team but competing individually against time. 

You will know exactly how much yarn you will need, so all yarn can be purchased at one time.  This is definitely a plus for those that will need their yarn mailed! 

There will be required posts on Facebook, email, or of course you can stop at the shop and show your work. While there are required posts, you may post your progress anytime. 


You can get an early start on your holiday stitching by making socks for gifts for family or friends, and maybe yourself. Socks can be as simple or complex as you like.
