Win Sock Knitting Treasures

Spring fever has struck in the office. It snowed last night, but we can feel those May flowers on their way! And with spring comes the beloved spring cleaning.

What, you don't love spring cleaning? Well, you may love it when we clean for spring, because some of the treasures we've reviewed in past issues of Sockupied could come your way. I'd like to know what you'd like to see in future issues of Sockupied. We'll choose our favorite answer from the comments posted on this blog and send some spring treasures to the winner.



Here's what our Spring Cleaning Contest includes:

Tom Bihn Clear Quarter Packing Cube plus Yarn Stuff Sack

Chicken Boots DPN protector

The Sock Doctor keychain and tapestry needle

A Soakbox in Lace Kelly

A skein of Twisted Fiber Art self-striping yarn Striping in colorway Cuddy

A skein of Holiday Yarns Silver Sock in colorway Melonhead

Get Ready for a New Face

It has been a great joy to edit Sockupied. It began as a crazy idea for a kind of knitting magazine we'd never seen before, and before I knew it we'd released ten issues in five years. It's time for me to move on to new challenges as the editor of Spin-Off magazine, but I'm thrilled to leave Sockupied in the hands of Amy Palmer. You may know Amy as the editor of Knitscene magazine, but before that she was part of the team that created the first issue of Sockupied. She is a passionate sock knitter and skilled editor, and she will take the eMag to places I never even dreamed of. (I almost resisted making a comment about taking the next step, but I couldn't quite help myself.) Amy is hard at work on the next issue, but for now you can see what she's been up to over on the Inside Knitscene blog.

I can't wait to read your ideas for new directions for Sockupied, and please welcome Amy!

Happy knitting,
