Elinor's Excellent Sock Design Contest
Since the end of Socktoberfest the only socks I've knit have been the uninspired, stockinette sort. With socks of this kind second sock syndrome takes its toll. Things have gotten so extreme that I've resorted to wearing mismatched pairs. Luckily Elinor, designer extraordinaire, of Exercise Before Knitting fame has concocted a solution to this sock ennui.
In her words: "I am proposing a sock pattern design contest to reinvigorate wayward sock knitters like me". She has gathered an amazing selection of prizes and plans to design a sock herself that she will give away - which is pretty nice because Elinor's designs are always breathtaking. Elinor asked a group of knitterly friends to help her judge. I'm very pleased to be among that group.
If you've never designed socks before, don't be shy. This is a perfect chance to give it a try. There is a Ravelry group & a Flickr pool where you can post photos and ask questions. I do hope you'll join.
