Hibiscus "Day Out" Contest Winners!

Hi there! MezzoDiva here with your belated contest report.

teribella posted (in the comments for the Contest post) about her Hibiscus sock's adventures as mother's helper at church, after school and at the dentist. Affectioknit wore her socks to the library/shopping/errand-running/biking. And last but not least, rxknitchic's Hibiscus-in-progress got their artistic groove on when they went to the Art League and to the kids art class with her girls.

In my capacity as official Knitters for Knockers arbiter of contests, I have decided that ALL THREE of these participants will receive a prize for their eager participation. As such I will be sending something special and appropriate for them to all the winners.

It seems we haven't had a lot of action as a KAL here at Knitters for Knockers. Ravelry seems to have taken the stuffing out of off-site KALs in general, but that's okay because it serves as a wonderful vehicle for disseminating news and generating enthusiasm and sharing ideas about patterns. Quite frankly I've personally hit several big bumps in the road in recent months which are finally working out okay, but have left me feeling drained as a dishrag. Though we have a Ravelry group too, I just haven't had any gumption to spare to get my pompoms out, hoot and hollar and lead the pep-squad the way I did last year.

I fully intend to continue my commitment to this cause and devise further patterns to raise money and awareness in the battle against breast cancer, but I'm not sure how best to move forward with this webpage. I'd appreciate getting your feedback about whether you think we should continue as a KAL, or perhaps alter the function of this site to an information centre reporting further Knitters for Knockers related news and events. Please let me know, either in private email or here. I am open to discussion.

Thanks again for everybody's enthusiasm and support.
Best Knitterly Regards,

You have knitted alot of socks. That is so cool. I have it on my to do list the beginning of Jan. Good luck with your site. I too sell patterns for Breast cancer awareness for my friend. I think it is important. maybe I can join the KAL when I figure out how to knit a sock.

I haven't knitted my Hibiscus socks yet! Christmas came around and I just haven't had time. But I love the pattern and I definitely plan to make them for myself, at least. Will look forward to your future patterns.

Thanks for visiting my site!

Nice socks! After all these years of knitting, I am still intimidated by socks... :-)
