Countdown

As of today, there are 10 days left to the Mr. Dress-up KAL. There's still time to start and finish if you're a quick sock knitter!

You've all seen my pair
in bright red Twisted Top Cat, but I thought I'd take a moment to share a few other entrants.

Minding My Own Stitches just finished hers up in regular Top Cat.
The colour is "Sandlewood", and I really wish I remember what we did to make this one - I love it! So warm and inviting.

Smokinghotneedles' needles were indeed smoking. She was the first one to finish a pair.
She used Twinkle Cat in "Garnet". That little sparkle just makes the socks just that much dressier - I love it! (And reminds me that I have some Twinkle Cat just waiting to be knit into socks - I better get my mitts finished fast!)

PracticalCrafts used one of my absolute favourite bases for her pair -
Jungle Cat in "Green Forest". I love the Jungle Cat for it's touch of bamboo and that little bit of silk-like sheen. My absolute favourite socks are made with Jungle Cat.

Mom finished up a pair for my Dad.
A pair in Alley Cat in a specially-dyed colourway called "Hunter Dave". (Yep my father and my significant other have the same name).

We've got many more entrants in the finished thread, and I know there are several still working away on their pairs. I love seeing all the different versions. The pattern's been downloaded more than 280 times, and I've gotten so many lovely notes from knitters!

I'll be putting the prize package together for the KAL this weekend - and next week we'll be choosing a winner!

I've also got another KAL planned for the end of March, so if you missed out on this one - don't worry - there's more fun to come!

It's actually startling how quickly Smoking Hot Needles whipped out these socks! Sorry to have scooped all of that colourway, but really, you had your chance!

The Jungle Cat made for luxuriously soft and comfy socks- I'm wearing mine today! They've been on my feet or in the laundry ever since I finished them.
