I have joined! I have actually joined my first online knitting exchange. Check out the details HERE.
I would like to offer a 15% discount off sock yarn from my shop to participants of Sockapalooza 4. Offer applies to in-stock or custom sock yarn orders, but cannot be combined with other discounts.
I have often teased Karin about all the KAL's and ___Topias and ___Stravaganzas she participates in. But now it is my turn. Okay, I'm going about this in a more conservative manner than she does, but I'm still in.
How did this happen? I was reading Grumperina's blog, and she asked if people had signed up. Signed up for what, I wondered. I hit the link, and was transported to an invitation to join. And it wasn't too late. I'm in! I am quite excited about this, and we haven't even started knitting yet.
I don't think I'll have any trouble coming up with yarn for the project, but now I might have to learn to do something fancy with socks. When I get the information on my pal, I might be back, DPN's in hand, to ask your advice about what pattern to use.
Of course, when I told Doug about it, his first response was to ask me when HIS socks would be finished. "You're going to knit socks for a total stranger before you finish mine, aren't you? You're going to start those socks before you even start my second sock aren't you??" Then he pointed at his lonely right foot.
"J'accuse," the foot muttered.
Maybe I should get that sock knitted up this week -- before I meet my pal. Just to get the ruddy foot off my back.
