Sock KAL progress and a GIVEAWAY!!

Happy fall!  Fall is probably my most favorite season...there's just something about apples, pumpkins, cider, cozy nights spent knitting...that really makes me happy.

I've been making significant (for me) progress on my Cadence socks that I'm knitting for Solidsocks KAL, SKA October Sockdown, and VeryBusyMonkey KAL on Ravelry.  First time using Cascade Heritage sock yarn, and I can honestly say I will be using this yarn again in the future.  I like the feel of the yarn as well as the stitch definition--it highlights the lace in the pattern very well.  Progress pic:

I'm also having a yarn giveaway!  To be entered to win, all you need to do is one of the following:  1)  Leave a comment here or 2)  Leave a comment on the Ravelry thread I created for this giveaway.   What's the prize?  A skein of Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay sock yarn, in the "Mocha" colorway.  I thought it was a pretty perfect colorway for fall:-)  Good luck!  PS--I will be picking the winner via Random Number Generator on Sunday, October 27th, so you have plenty of time to enter.

  14. I have used the Cascade Heritage yarn before and I loved it. Very soft, yet stable for cables and lace. I like your Cadence socks, going to look up that pattern now.
