Sock Contest Winners!!

We had the most completed projects for the sock contest, then for any of the contests before that.  There were 19 pairs in all and they were all beautifully done. The voting ended yesterday and we are excited to announce that the winner of the State Fair Parade Sock Contest is..............................

#18, knit by Tasha Wells
Owlie
By Julie Elswick Suchomel




And as always, we also have a prize for a voter, drawn at random.  For every vote, your name was put into the "hat" and because of her vote on Nancy's blog, the winner of the "Voter's Drawing" is Ashley Davidson.

Tasha won two skeins of Regia Extra Merino Twist, one skein of Opal sock yarn, and Around the World in Knitted Socks by Stephanie van der Linden. Ashley won two skeins of Regia Extra Merino Twist Color and a Regia booklet.  You may come into the store to receive your prize.


We also had a drawing for Rose's sock students who participated and completed at least one of their socks. Rose had four students complete a pair of socks for her special drawing. Marsha Duea won a skein of "vintage" Opal sock yarn from Rose's vast sock yarn stash, and several sock patterns donated by Denise B that she got at Sock Summit in Portland.

We've had someone who is not one of our registered customers question the voting for this contest. We would like to take a minute to remind you that you must follow all the rules for voting. Only registered customers (who receive our emails) are eligible to vote in any and all of our contests. 
 
Thanks so much to everyone who participated!  We have just begun our 6th and final contest, the Labor Day Fall/Winter Sweater Contest.  Check out our website to read all of the rules and details.
