 Winners Chosen on October 29

(Two Winners Will Be Chosen Weekly, One Winner Per Prize)

Prize 1 & 2: Zitron Art Deco and a pair of addi FlexiFlips.

If socks rock your world, we have a marvelous soft sock yarn that will create Fair Isle patterns while you do nothing but stockinette stitch. Zitron Art Deco comes in 6 great Fair Isle combinations that will brighten any cloudy day; we like to call them “Happy Colors”. Of course, knitting socks can be done in many ways: two socks on two circs, using double points and magic loop just to name a few. Addi®, along with inspiration from German blogger Sylvie Rasch, created another way to knit socks.

This prize includes a pair of this new creation … FlexiFlips! These clever double points not only have sharp and rounded tips for you to choose from, they also bend in the middle so you only need three to work with: two to hold the work, and one to knit onto. This allows you to knit much faster (less transitions) and minimizes any ladders you may unintentionally create using double points or magic loop. Flexiflips are available in 11 sizes, from a US 0 to a US 8.
