Socktoberfest 2006 officially begins on October 1st, but feel free to pull out sock yarn and needles now. Warm up the needles!
Socktoberfest is not a contest – it is simply a celebration of socks – any handcrafted socks will do!
You can use Socktoberfest to stashbust your sock yarn, to try a new technique or pattern, or even as a jumpstart for holiday knitting. There will be tutorials on many different techniques, some reviews of sock yarns and sock knitting books, as well as interviews with designers, authors, and dyers. Socktoberfest 2005 was loads of fun – lets make 2006 even better!
In the sign up form, there is a comment field – please leave me a comment there if you are interested in contributing a prize to the Socktoberfest drawings (October 31st!), doing an interview with me (do you spin or dye your own sock yarn? do you have a knack for writing sock patterns?), or contributing a picture tutorial of a particular technique (socks on two circulars, two socks at once, special cast-ons, etc.) The more the merrier!
