Editor's note: Last weekend we announced a Spring Cleaning contest, but we had some technical difficulties that prevented comments during the official contest period. So we're running a new contest with the same prize!
Win Sock Knitting Treasures
Spring fever has struck in the office. It snowed last night, but we can feel those May flowers on their way! And with spring comes the beloved spring cleaning.
What, you don't love spring cleaning? Well, you may love it when we clean for spring, because some of the treasures we've reviewed in past issues of Sockupied could come your way. In 20 words or less, tell us your best sock-knitting tip. We'll choose our favorite answer from the comments posted on this blog and send some spring treasures to the winner.
Here's what our Spring Cleaning Contest includes:
Tom Bihn Clear Quarter Packing Cube plus Yarn Stuff Sack
Chicken Boots DPN protector
The Sock Doctor keychain and tapestry needle
A Soakbox in Lace Kelly
A skein of Twisted Fiber Art self-striping yarn Striping in colorway Cuddy
A skein of Holiday Yarns Silver Sock in colorway Melonhead
To enter the contest, leave a comment below and share your best sock advice. On April 22, 2014, our panel of judges will pick one winner for best tip from the entered comments. Check back on April 23 to see if you’ve won. The Contest begins on April 14, 2014, 8:00 p.m. and ends April 21, 2014, 10:59 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET"). Due to the variety of rules regulating contests worldwide, we can only select winners from entrants that are U.S. residents (excluding Puerto Rico), 18 years old or older at the time of entry; and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec). Read the official contest rules here.
Get Ready for a New Face
It has been a great joy to edit Sockupied. It began as a crazy idea for a kind of knitting magazine we'd never seen before, and before I knew it we'd released ten issues in five years. It's time for me to move on to new challenges as the editor of Spin-Off magazine, but I'm thrilled to leave Sockupied in the hands of Amy Palmer. You may know Amy as the editor of Knitscene magazine, but before that she was part of the team that created the first issue of Sockupied. She is a passionate sock knitter and skilled editor, and she will take the eMag to places I never even dreamed of. (I almost resisted making a comment about taking the next step, but I couldn't quite help myself.) Amy is hard at work on the next issue, but for now you can see what she's been up to over on the Inside Knitscene blog.
I can't wait to read your sock tips, and please welcome Amy!
