Well, it’s time to announce the winners of my contest!

The first prize goes to MJ, who guessed 20 pairs worth of sock yarn – which is exactly how much I bought! She’ll be getting the Toe-Up book.

There are two runners up who guessed 21. This is a “more correct” answer than 19 because I actually came home with 21 pairs worth of sock yarn, just one of them I didn’t buy and I realized the question for the contest was how much I bought, and also one of the 21 is not for me. This question was more complicated than I realized!

So Tece and Dawn are the two runners up – I’ll email you copies of Falling Up. (Tece, I need your email!)

In the past few days I’ve also finished a couple pairs of socks.

Sorry for the blurry picture, the beautiful twisted stitches don’t show up with flash and I apparently couldn’t stand still enough.

I started the Twisted Flower socks so long ago as twin socks with MJ, but I got distracted when I hit the heel flaps. Also, there is a 38 stitch by 49 row chart for the foot, and that requires a bit more attention than my usual knitting situations allow. But the past week or so I decided I’d go for it and put on an audiobook and just did it. And I’m so glad I did!
