Tour de Sox 2008

July 1, 2008

If you like to watch the cycling Tour de France and also like to knit socks, check out the Tour de Sox 2008.

Crystal Palace Bamboo Cotton LollipopsIt’s a knit-along contest sponsored by Crystal Palace Yarns, with fun categories and nifty prizes. You can enter socks knit with any yarn you like, but there are extra prizes for socks knit with yarns from Crystal Palace.

I especially love the idea of a White with Pink Dots category. Just perfect for Crystal Palace Bamboo Cotton in the Lollipops colourway. It’s a spotted print yarn, so the yarn makes the pink dots as you knit. Cute or what?

    Hey – the spotty yarn sounds good, any chance of a swatch being shown so we can get a better idea of how it knits up?

    There are knitted swatches on the Crystal Palace site here: http://straw.com/cpy/yarns/pandacotton-sockoutline-spring08.html

    I should see about putting those knitted samples up on the Yarnomat site too. Thanks!
