Several asked about Socktober. You can find it at the Carolina Fiber Girls’ forum on Ravelry. Or, you can go to Ravelry, then click on “Groups” and search for “Carolina Girls”. You’ll see the topic “Socktober2016 is coming”.
As I understand it, we get points for finishing socks . . doesn’t matter when they were started, so long as they’re finished during October, with some amount of knitting done in October. You get extra points if a sponsored yarn or pattern is used, extra points if you use gadgets from their sponsors. Points are added up in the end and there are prizes.
I’m doing it more to finish up sock projects . . not even hoping to be a winner as far as points go. I have found quite a few sock patterns that I love – some free, some purchased. There were at least a couple of dyers whose brands I’ve heard great things about (Marigold Jen and Invictus) and I ordered some of their yarns to try.
So . . check it out if you’re interested!
