Because the Sock Summit is happening and I’m not there and because it’s summer and I don’t have time to knit much, but fall is coming and I have more time to sit and knit in the fall and winter . . I think it’s time for a sock yarn giveaway, along with a really neat Lexie Barnes needle case?
The yarn is a gorgeous cherry red, Fleece Artist BFL (80% Superwash Blue Face Leicester/20% nylon). This little package was donated by my favorite yarn shop, Simply Sock Yarn. They’ve been my favorite yarn shop for several years now. I’ve always had fantastic service from them, have recommended them to friends and those friends love shopping with them too.
The drawing will be held Friday before noon and all you have to do to be entered is create a post on your blog showing socks you’ve recently knitted or are currently knitting, then leave a comment here with a link back to that post. To be eligible, the link has to be to that specific post, not to your main blog.
I am knew at knitting and would love to try to do socks I haven’t tried that yet.
Red – my favorite color. Here is a link to my sock knitting saga.

I don’t have a blog 🙁 But whoever wins could knit the socks and ship them to me 🙂
Yes, I am in a silly mood this morning. Fiscal Year end reports have turned my mind to mush.

Also a no-blogger, but I have many ufo-socks that I could post if I had one!!!
Judy….thanks for sharing your blog with all of us, and for your giveaway!
Hi! Thanks for having this great give away it is very generous. That yarn would look awesome as some Baudelaire socks by CookieA! 😉
Here is my recent sock post:
Haven’t given in to the sock knitting craze yet but it’s so tempting….
I just posted the first pair of socks I just finished on real sock yarn…can you tell I don’t have much. Love the red…great choice of color. Good luck to everyone.
And Thanks Judy for a cool contest.
Here’s my poor lonely socks awaiting their mates. 🙂
And you’ve got me hooked on the Simply Sock Yarn shop – I think all except one of those is made from their yarns! They are simply wonderful and have terrific customer service.
I love the red yarn. Socks made from it would be so great! Here is the link to my one and only pair of socks.

i never wore red until I woke up from cancer surgery’s 4 month coma, and all of a sudden red was my favorite color. everything after I got out of the hospital had to be red-lol.
I do knit, but alas Judy I do not have a blog. Good luck to whomever wins this wonderful item!
I can’t knit, but I have a beautiful pair of socks that you knitted for me! No, that doesn’t count! Beautiful yarn!
great yarn! Here’s the link to my current-socks post:
I haven’t been knitting socks, but this is the last pair I did this winter. Come on cool weather…

Oooh, red yarn sounds so fun! I posted pictures of my sock progress so far. I just started knitting socks last fall, and they are so much fun! I am using the method using two circular needles per sock.
Sue H says
I’ve finished two pairs and have two pairs in progress. Socks are so much fun to knit — they are portable and great conversation starters!
That red yarn is lovely! I have just recently become a sockknitter – here is my first pair, finished late June. I have two other pair started, but I am really proud to have something FINISHED!
Sue H says
Red sock yarn would be wonderful!

Above is the link to my sock posting. Fun give-away!

I have completed two pairs, and have two more pairs underway. They are so much fun! I knit them on two circular needles. I tried the two-at-a-time method, but it wasn’t for me!
Socks are soo much fun!!…Thanks Judy for doing this giveway for such beautiful gifties it is so kind of you, someone is going to be one lucky guy/gal 🙂
No blog here, either! LOL!! But I’ll still be very excited for whichever blogger wins that scrumptious red yarn.
I put my sock needles down over the weekend when I finished a “Pom Pom Ped” (from Purl Bee–Purl/Soho shop’s blog). I had decided to do this 2nd pair of “PPPs” on a size 1 needle, ‘cuz the pair I did on size 2s seemed just a tad big. Got the first ped done, and my 25-year-old daughter w/ small feet will be getting these. LOL!!
So this week, I’m working on a “Scarf Hood” for my sister. Size won’t count w/ this project!! LOL!! Eve
Here’s my link. Thanks for all the fun parts of your blog.
