We may be in the middle of Project Spectrum, but you may very well know that LollyKnitting Around is also the home of another large-scale craft project called Socktoberfest, a celebration of sock and foot-coverings every October…
Well, as it happens, Socktoberfest got some press! Gaby, assistant editor of Quick and Crafty, a UK-based craft magazine, contacted me a few months ago for some information on the social aspects of knitting / blogging, and on Socktoberfest for their April 2007 issue. Her magazine is not available in the US, so she was kind enough to send me a copy! I received it this week.
The article focuses on London-based groups, but Socktoberfest got a special mention in the end, and there are also some fun pictures from Socktoberfest participants (like Leah’s Pomatomus socks - which were, designed by another Socktoberfest participant and interviewee, Cookie A!)
Check it! Click on the pictures below to view a larger (readable) copy of the article.
This reminds me of all of the socks that I want to knit for Project Spectrum!
If you need some sock-y inspiration, the Socktoberfest Flickr Pool is still going strong! Beautiful new additions every day!
Thanks to everyone who participates in these projects with me! It is so exciting to see how far-reaching a little project can be
