Earlier this year, we offered to send a copy of Alice Yu's book Socktopus: 17 Pairs of Socks to Knit and Show Off to a knitter who best answered this question:
In 5 words or less, what makes a sock yarn perfect for you?
We loved all the answers we received, making it a difficult choice. In the end, though, Sylvie summed it up best:
"Practical but a little decadent."
Our extra copy is en route to Sylvie in hopes that she finds lots of uses for her practical but decadent sock yarns!
P.S. We're getting ready to launch the first of our Feet on the Street blog posts.
It's an ongoing feature, so keep your sock stories coming! If we share
your story and image, we'll send you some yarn from our treasure
