Strick-ly Socks and 36 Hippos

Recently while browsing around, 
I joined a

You know how it goes
 one click lead to another
and I found myself reading
Knitter's Brewing Co. blog
I don't know whether it was this podcast

but as soon as I saw these blue nails and then the blue sox
I knew those sox were destine to get cast on my needle.

Several days late it was announced that Hang Ten was this month's KAL
I was IN!
even if I do have four pair actively on needles

I cast on right then and there.

  1. Oh my goodness!!!!!! the prize does fit, though, you sock-a-holic lucky gal!!!!
    I'll try for the giveaway!!!

  2. Congrats on winning the sock book, Gerry! I'd love to see what it's like to work with something cut on the Accuquilt. Thanks for counting me in.

  3. Oh my, the sock world will never be the same. Do I get to put my order in early? I am kind of partial to Goldenrod.

    I would love the 36 Hippo's and counting. This would make a great 'big girl quilt' for GD's new 'big girl bed'.

    Many hugs - Marie

  4. How wonderful Gerry! I hope your Mother's Day was extra special and you were pampered and spoiled rotten!
    Have a wonderful Monday.
