Sock Knitter's Badge of Honor

You can wear your heart on your sleeve, but what do you wear on your lapel to show the world that you're a sock knitter?

In the Sockupied offices, we started thinking about the great knitting pins, buttons, and badges that knitters have been sporting. How about badges especially for sock knitters, though? We found a few fun ones before we started wondering… What would we put on to show the world we're proud sock knitters?

From the Knitty shop, this button is all about onomatopoeia. Lysa Hoffman's clever button is available on Cafe Press. What would you wear?










And that's where you come in. For the Spring 2014 issue of Sockupied, our favorite Last Stitch feature will be all about sock-knitting badges, and we're having a contest for the best button ideas. Send us your idea for a sock-knitting pin before Friday, October 18, 2013, and if we use your submission we'll send you yarn and other goodies from the Sockupied stash. Click here for complete rules.

We'll publish our favorites in January, so keep an eye out for the winners—along with new articles, patterns, and everything you love in a new issue of Sockupied.
