Sockapalooooza signups are open! Go here for details and the signup link. Signups are open only for 48 hours or so.

In other news, this blog is approaching another milestone. In a week or two (that’s my estimate), someone will post the 1000th comment. That lucky person will receive a $15 gift certificate!

    I’m not sure I can stand the pressure of knitting socks for a swap…

    You know, I’ve been thinking of doing this… but I have other projects to knit. The pressure. Decisions. The Pressure! :O)

    I was sooooo tempted. I clicked….I started to fill out the form…and remembered…I hate knitting under pressure. The minute I filled out and sent the form, I would have kicked myself. But…this is a good thing. If I’d not seen your post and missed the sign up…THEN I would have really, really, reaaaaaallly wanted in. You saved me from myself. :)

    There was a time I would have signed up for Sockapalooooza. Then I knit socks for a different swap, I realized that sort of thing is not in my nature. Oh well. Have fun though.

    I signed up for it. I’ll probably wonder what I was thinking come the deadline, but at least that’s a good long ways off (seemingly) and it seems doable now. (whereas, if the socks were to be sent in, say, 2 weeks, I’d be screwed. socks don’t come off my needles in pairs that quickly. at least I know that much)

    1000! Oh my! I am such a slow sock knitter that I can’t in any good conscience sign up for one of those…but the coffee swap, now that’s something I can swing!

    I can’t even knit pao a pair of socks that fit so knitting for someone else would be mean!

    I did the sockapaloooza but I’m bowing out of this round; the first time, it was to force myself to learn how to knit socks. And now? I just want to knit myself some socks!
