contest for scrap sock yarn
I decided to have two different, but sock related contests. One will run now until, say, Halloween. The next will run next month, so stay tuned!
My first ever contest will be:
scrap sock yarn
Please post a message giving your favorite way (s) to use up your leftover, scrap sock yarn (does not have to be used in a sock). Please post links &/or details &/or share photos. We all have leftovers & right now, I'm swimming in them & stumped to come up w/ new ways of using them, especially the leftover patterned stuff. I've done the Crazy 8's pattern, I've done fair isle, I've done mosaic, I've done stripes, I've added a solid for the main sock, I've done the feather & fan socks using a solid for the foot & leg. I've made regular feather & fan/broadripple socks just changing yarns as I've run out. I think I've used every idea there is: please suggestion something new!
There will be two winners:
1. whoever suggests the most "unique-to-me" idea
2. a winner chosen at random
Each winner will get their choice of either
a. a 100 gram skein of fingering weight merino sock yarn, dyed in your choice of Kool Aide colors, in either stripes, painted, or whatever you want.
b. 100 grams of scrap sock yarn
