Calling All Sock Knitters!

While reading throuhg my daily blog list, I came across a sock swap on Confessions of a Misplaced Southern Belle. She is putting together a sock swap for those in the Hurricane areas, called Hurricane Sock Party. I thought it would be a blast, but being in Ohio, I couldn't join. After reading her post, I e-mailed her and asked her if I could barrow the idea for the rest of us. So, with her permission, here is my idea:

Summer Sock Party!!!!!! It is the same basic idea as her's. Each person is to pick a sock yarn and pattern, knit 1 sock, then mail that sock, the remaining sock yarn, the pattern and a few summer party items (instead of survival items) to your pal. The party items can be anything you might use for summer parties such as some paper umbrellas, drink mixes or recipes (no actual alcohol, please - it's illegal to ship across state lines), BBQ sauce or recipes, napkins, stir sticks or even a string of mini chinese party laterns. I think you get the idea. So, if you want to join, just e-mail me or leave a comment. As soon as I get some that are interested, I'll put up a blog for it, and take voluteers to help host if it gets to where I can't handle it all by myself. So, come have some summer party fun!
