The Yarn Equivalent of the Rich Getting Richer

Wendy, of WendyKnits knits a lot of socks. At the start of the Summer of Socks, Wendy ran a contest to guess just how many socks she would knit during the along. I guessed 19 pairs and was among the lucky winners!

WendyKnits Prize yarn

My prize is a gorgeous skein of Lisa Souza Sock! in the Sky Drama colorway. I have Lots of Sock Yarn, but this is my very first skein of Lisa’s. It’s her superwash wool/nylon, and at 510 yards this has potential to become more than socks. Wendy also included a sock pattern for her classic Lacy Rib Socks.

Now, she always denies being a fast knitter, but I’ve knit about 2.1 pairs of socks this summer. So, at 19 pairs I say Congratulations Wendy! and Thanks for the fun contest!
