It's simple really - after nominations and voting, six patterns were chosen for the knitalong. Participants are to select six sock yarns from their stash, pack them up in bags and open them one at a time in accord with the pattern schedule.
Simple? You would think so. But do you think I could choose the yarns for my six socks? No way! Half of my sock yarn I couldn't bear to part with (now that was a suprise, I didn't think I was like that), the other half I didn't even like.
In the end I managed it, but I really wish I had a nice yellow sock yarn. One that I can bear to part with that is.
The pattern schedule, and sign-ups are here, there are only six pairs of socks for the year so it's not too demanding. Plus there's a chance to win free yarn..
Knitabulous yarn will be awarding a sock club package for each round of the event. Finished picture on the ravelry group and they will be put in a draw and a winner selected. Each winner will receive a sock club package from knitabulous yarn containing a skein of supertwist merino in a suprise semi-solid and a treat or two.
So if you want to be in the running to receive free yarn, or you want to knit some of the sock yarn you already have, head on over and sign up.
