Feet on the Street: The Yarn Giveaway

The "Feet on the Street" feature in the first few issues of Sockupied was always one of my favorites. I loved seeing and reading about what sock knitters had on the needles. Gifts for friends, treats for themselves, projects to keep their hands busy, irresistible patterns—we love hearing about them all.

In Fall 2012, Sockupied readers showed how socks made their gardens grow!  


Now "Feet on the Street" is making the transition from magazine to blog feature. We want to share your sock stories with not only Sockupied readers but every sock knitter in blogland. After all, who will better appreciate the bumps and celebrations on the road to sock success than other sock knitters?

Did someone say yarn giveaway?

Why yes, I did. If we publish your sock tale on Inside e-Knitting Magazines, we'll send you a skein of yarn. Here are a few of the goodies we'd love to send your way . . .


 Quince & Co. Tern, barnacle

With a lovely silk content, this yarn would be great in the Escadaria Socks by Kristi Geraci (Sockupied Spring 2011).


The Natural Dye Studio Dazzle, black pearl

This lovely Bluefaced Leicester yarn, reviewed in the Spring 2012 Sockupied, would shine in the Emerging Cable Socks by Stefanie Bold (Sockupied Fall 2012).


Dream in Color Starry, Bermuda teal

One of the lovely shimmering yarns reviewed in LaceKnits, this is a sock-weight yarn that shines. It would be a beautiful choice for the Cookie A's Passerine Socks (Sockupied 2010).
