Giveaway Winners

Thank you all for the amazing design ideas. We were blown away by your feedback ... sock knitters are such a creative bunch! We had a blast going through them and coming up with ways to bring your travel destinations to the world of sock knitting.

Above are the winning ideas! We have indicated winners with your name and the suggested sock name. If there is more than one name listed, that means there were two outstanding entries mentioning the same place ... and we are using aspects of both in the design.

Note: Scout has two exotic mystery destinations in mind, but he's not talking!  All I we can get from him is a meow and a puuurrrr!

The Project

"Adorable Ewe" Sweater

by Michelle Hunter
Pattern FREE posted Progressively during the event

Michelle's knit alongs (KALs) are mystery knit alongs. So there are no preliminary photos ... only a general of descriptions of the finished project. But she has told us that the baby sweater has a sheep-theme and will be way too cute to miss! ... checkout the sheep buttons!

The sweater is sized to fit a 6 month old baby and is appropriate for a boy or girl. Pick a boy or girl color ... or a gender neutral color if you are still waiting for the gender reveal!

All of the techniques Michelle uses will be supported by her video tutorials and she answers questions daily on her website and Ravelry group. Michelle's instructions, tutorials and videos have made her KALs extremely popular ... think of her KAL as an online class, worth far more than the price of admission — which is, of course, Free!!
