One year ago, DH and I flew to the US. We landed in LA before we left home - ah the wonders of the date line (of course on the way back we lose a whole day!). (maybe I should've posted this yesterday to match up with the time we left Melbourne, not the time in the USA.... argh, time travel is such a pita!) We flew across to Denver and were collected by Nathan's possible new boss and driven to Fort Collins. Three days later, utterly charmed (particularly cos it snowed on us - our home doesn't get snow), we flew back home and prepared to move from our home to the USA. It was another three months before we moved but that is another story!
In celebration of the last whacky year, with all the trials and tribulations and kindnesses and sadnesses and above all change, I declare a contest! And some new socks! Some socks that have some differences between them!
Here are my Solstice Slip socks in Firebird from last year's STR club. They are an unpair. I finished them just in time for equinox. Hmm. Timing!
There are a number of differences between them.
I admit that three differences were unintended and due to me not reading the pattern correctly and instead doing my own thang. The other differences are just me being me.
(Can you believe I just spent half an hour cussing at the computer trying to get the pics online and had to get Nathan to help me, only to find that I had put a zero rather than an o in the fo of finished object? And then when I thought it was all sorted, I had another 15 minutes of cussing cos two of the small pics looked the same even though they have different names and are different pics on the server. I am a doofus!)
Post three differences in the comments and you will go into the draw to win
(that is some Piece of Vermont colonial wool blend sock yarn in Jam, a colourway that is much more subtle than my camera can show but is deep blues and purples and plums,
and some limited edition Rockin Sock Club STR 100% merino superwash in flower power,
plus a set of stitchmarkers)
Here's some hints - the toes, the heels, the pattern... but you have to say what is different, not just the toes, the heels and the pattern.
Competition closes 6pm PDT Sunday March 30 (or about midday on the 31st for Aussies). Oh and if you are a spinner let me know cos I'll throw a little extra in.
PS. The winner of my last contest never got announced due to stupidity on my part and a whole lotta travel and the yarn in question being packed up for moving. The winner of the handspun skein of Shetland wool is:
CraftyScience! Yes, Darrow come on down!
