Indie Socks Giveaway

Happy Monday! What could be a better way to start off the week than winning a book?! Chrissy Gardiner's newest book is called Indie Socks. Inside are beautiful sock patterns written up for all those tricky variegated skeins. Included in the book are dyer profiles written up by Donna Arney. I am proud to say I am one of the feature dyers! I had a great time reading through all the profiles and getting to know the companies better. There's never enough time at shows to get to have chats with all of these fabulous people, so it was like sitting down and having a nice cup of tea with each of them. 
The patterns are beautiful too. Chrissy did a great job of capturing color and letting the yarn do the talking in each pattern. I have the pleasure of giving away a copy! Go to the shop and tell me which variegated color is your favorite in the comments. Contest closes on Wednesday and I'll announce the winner on Thursday! I'll also be announcing the next Community Supported Yarn on Thursday! Stay tuned for more fun!!

  9. I love your colours. It's very difficult to just pick one. I've narrowed it down to two (not an easy task) and they are My Little Pony and Jazzercise.

  19. Silky merino cedar is my favorite. It's close to the color I'm looking for to knit a shawl for my aunt. She's looking for more of an apple green variegated colorway, though.

    It would be a perfect hat for my new niece or nephew.

  27. I'm torn between Elegant Strawberries and Edelweiss, but I guess I'll go with the Edelweiss because back in college choir we sang many of the songs from "The Sound of Music." Egads I'm OLDER THAN DIRT!!!!
