Sock the Vote! Contest and Giveaway!
I blogged about Melissa at Single Handed Knits a couple of weeks ago. And I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed that little ravelry community. Melissa has a talent for organizing some very cool Knit Alongs (KALs) and other events, and the KAL that’s coming up is no exception! This next KAL will run during the last month of the election which nicely coincides with socktober. She’s organizing us into knitting “parties”. Everyone participating will order one of three different kits, and when you order one you’re committing to a “party”, the Toe-Up party, the Cuff-Down party, or the “Undecided”. You should totally go check out the KAL at her site and join! It’s going to be barrels of fun during a season that would probably be pretty irritating, no matter what your political philosophies are. That’s all I’m going to say about real politics since NO political chatter is allowed at all in this KAL!
Here’s where the contest comes in. I need help deciding which party to join. Here’s how you’re gonna help me out:
1.) Place your vote for which party I should join in the poll box below.
2.) Comment on this blog post with your Ravelry name and a link to the sock pattern you recommend. This is important, I can’t enter you in the give-away if you don’t comment. I’d prefer if it was a paid pattern since I’d like to take the opportunity to support an indy sock designer.
This is going to be a super quick contest. Since the kits go on sale Friday 6pm ET (noon hawaiian time), that’s when the EE polls will close. I’ll randomly select a winner from the comments and they’ll receive a sock pattern of their choice from Ravelry.
A couple thoughts to help you decide how to vote. Traditionally, I’m a cuff-downer, but I’m also up for broadening my horizons by doing something toe-up. Also, undecided can also mean a totally different, non-traditional sock knitting method. So if you want to suggest something totally crazy-pants, I’m all up for that too!
The race is on!
