Sock Knitting Giveaway!

Sock knitting is an obsession for a lot of people. I know it is for me.

For some people, sock designing is the obsession. And one of those people is Hunter Hammersen, author of the remarkable Silk Road Socks, and her latest book, The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet.

I want to knit them all.

This new book features 20 patterns inspired by vintage botanical illustrations, and all feature Hunter’s fabulous patterning and attention to detail. There’s a great mix of socks and accessories.

The Loasa Socks. I definitely want to knit these. And if you do, enter the contest!

And for today’s giveaway, we’ve got two prizes for obsessed socks knitters:

The Big Prize: a copy of the book + an e-book copy (value: $26.95), and a skein of Rune sock yarn from Barking Dog Yarns to make the Loasa socks (pictured above) from the book (value: $26.95). Total prize value $53.90.

The Excellent Second Prize: a copy of the book + an e-book copy (value: $26.95)

You know how it works: leave a comment on this post between now and midnight eastern time, September 5th. Two comments will be chosen at random to answer a skill testing question, one for each prize. If the commenters answer correctly they will win the prize. If you have already won a prize from us in the past year, please do give other knitters a chance.

Thanks to Hunter and Suzanne at Barking Dog Yarns!

    Whew! Squeaking in under the wire. That’s what I get for not taking the laptop camping. Those socks are gorgeous!

    I’ve never knit a sock with a turned cuff, so I would enjoy getting the book and giving that lovely one a try.

    So many great patterns in that book. I’d sure love to win a hard copy of the book. I’m an old fashioned book lover. Thanks.

    Would love to grab a book/ebook duo- still in the beginning stages of working through her first book, but why should that stop me from diving into the second?

    I did not know that the The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet book was available and it does look delightful. Silk Road Socks book is a treasure so I look forward to this new book.
