Wow! Am I actually the first commenter? I love knitting socks, and think the idea of 50 socks for 50 states is great.

yvonnep said...

Sure, I do like Bling :-) but I really really like the purple mountain socks. Long ago I visited the States and loved Colorado... and I happen to love mountains wherever they are.

I just found your blog thanks to Ravelry but am enjoying checking it out! :D

Bling is certainly a -gorgeous- sock, I love the lacy back :)

I am just starting a two at a time toe up sock class, and this would be a WONDERFUL addition to my stash of stuff.

Thanks for offering!

dianelaces said...

I love knitting socks and Bling has just been added to my queue. I'm ready to tackle beads :)

While I think Bling is great...I love "Fly Away home"...

oddlief said...

It would be hard to choose a favorite sock among all these beautiful choices, but bling is among my favorites. (rav id oddlief)

Breien in Lansingerland said...

LOL! You are spoiling people!

Liz said...

I have been wanting to get my hands on that book, alas... I don't think it is available here in Germany. What I have seen of the socks so far, looks fabulous, and so I am sure "bling" is just as wonderful.

hamle06 said...

wow, had never heard of the book. very cool, would love to win it.

This sounds so interesting. I always have a pair of socks on the needles and just stocked up on more sock yarn. Someone told me that sock yarn does not count as stash so I keep a lot of it.

What a great idea for a book (and a contest!)

I'll have to check them out more, but Bling is cool; I like the lace that runs along the side of the foot.

beautyredefined on ravelry should I be the lucky winner!

choirgirl said...

I just found you thanks to ravelry. And of course Bling is my favourite! Contact me via a comment on my own blog.

Jinny said...

Bling is one of the patterns that jumped out at me. This book looks great. I hope there's a little bit of info about each area to go with the socks.

Chris said...

"BLING" is hands down the best! Thanks for the giveaway. Best wishes for 2010.

Such a neat idea! Thank you for sharing. (jenknitsalot on Rav)

Just Nancy said...

I love the idea of 50 socks for 50 states. But am even happier I followed the Ravelry link to your great page. I love your work.

Tannlines said...

Socks are so interesting - and small enough to learn new skills- different heels and toes, toe up, cuff down! as well as adding techniques like lace, fairisle etc. I've only made a few pairs of socks, and always 2 at a time because I'm afraid I'll never finish the second one! I love all the different patterns and textures you can add to just a little pair of socks!
I can be contacted at lianne.tanner@gmail.com

ChristineT said...

This is the best idea for a sock book I've ever seen. All those states! All those patterns! I'll wait to buy in hopes I'll be the lucky winner! christineandrod@cablemt.net

Raerean said...

To me that sounds like al ot of socks, but then I've never knitted socks ;) They are on my list of to-do for this year though, once I get brave enough...

thetexturedknitter said...

I just went and looked, and "Bling" really is pretty! I like how the pattern (cable?) at the sides follows the gusset curve and sets off the lace panel so nicely.

Shawn said...

Ooh. That book looks fascinating!

geoknitter on ravelry said...

The collection is great- Bling is cool, but not my style to wear- though it would be fun to knit. I expect this will find its way into my collection somehow. Maybe I'll win!?

The book looks great! Thanks for this offer.

Heidi Solberg Viar said...

I really love the Snowflake (Wisconsin) design--it looks a lot like Norwegian stranded knitting, which is quite apropos considering the Norwegian heritage of the area where I grew up. Hope to view more of the patterns!

nubsmom said...

That is a really neat collection of patterns!

Margie said...

Of course Bling is my favorite pattern. I love all of your designs.

Dorothy said...

I've been anticipating this book as each sock pattern has been released on Ravelry. I'm looking forward to somehow get a copy of this book/cd

Dorothy said...

I'd never heard of the book until I saw your post. It looks really cool! I really like the bling sock! (Beads in socks, what a brilliant idea!)

Bling does look like a cool pattern. I'll have to look into the book more on Ravelry. I love knitting socks.

I LOVE to make socks and think this is an excellent idea! Although I have lots of socks in my queue, I would love to make socks representing all the states I lived in while in the Army (starting with Maine...my homestate).

Bling is beautiful.

I actually like Bling a lot--it's a pretty pattern and looks like it would be fun with the beads. I like the idea of the 50 states socks too-having just stared sock knitting last year, I am already hooked!
