First contest winners!

Well, there were only a couple of folks who entered the contest, so they get TWO sets of yarn each. If I called you out on Twitter, email me (threadpanda at gmail dot com) and let me know if you have a preference of yarns; I’ll do my best to send you the yarn this week!

I’ve got a couple more contests in the works to celebrate my blogaversary, and even stopped in to Fancy Tiger to pick up a couple of goodies today, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, here’s how the first of March’s pair of socks is turning out.


This pattern is so easy to memorize, I foresee this zipping right along when I find the time to knit. The yarn is exceptionally squishy, and somehow has a little bit of a halo for being 100% merino. It’s more loosely spun than most merino yarns I’ve worked with, so maybe that’s where the halo comes from? I’m not sure.


These socks are Vera-approved.

  1. Love the socks! They really do look squishy and soft. And congrats to the contest winners. I’m sorry, but I can’t allow myself to join twitter. I don’t have time for another addiction! Facebook already eats into my knitting time, and knitting often disrupts my Facebooking. What’s a girl to do?

    • Haha I wasn’t trying to make people join Twitter. 😉

      The sock is coming out sooooo squishy, I can’t wait to wear them.
