SOCKTOBERFEST is finally here!

It is time for Socktoberfest! Leave a comment here for a free entry into our Socktoberfest drawing (be sure to include a way to reach you - etsy username, ravelry username or email). Want to increase your chances? You'll get one additional entry for each item purchased in the shop anytime in the month of October. Sock club purchases count for however many months you buy. So if you get a 12 month Pride and Prejudice membership, you get 12 entries into the drawing! Yay!




And now what you've been waiting for - the prizes!




Grand Prize: A sophisticated black Persnickity Knits Fifi Knitting Clutch stuffed with 3 skeins of Knit it Up sock yarn, a set of Knit it Up knitting gift tags, a tin of Knit it Up hand balm and some awesome HiyaHiya Stainless Steel 9" circular needles (you can now knit socks on circulars without magic loop - I love them!)


Total Value: over $150!




1st Prize: a CocoKnits Knitting Block set. I absolutely adore mine and had to share it with you!




2nd Prize: a skein of Knit it Up sock yarn




3rd Prize: a skein of Knit it Up sock yarn




4th Prize: a set of Knit it Up Knitting Gift Tags (recently featured in Knitty)




5th Prize: a set of Knit it Up Knitting Gift Tags




All together that's over $300 in prizes! We'll keep it open through October 31st, and hold the drawing November 1st. Winners will be announced here.

I knew there was a reason I waited to join the Pride and Prejudice sock club in October. *sigh* Colin Firth. And, after all, IT IS Pride and Prejudice.
