Free Sock Yarn Anybody?

hee-hee...now that I have your attention, I am looking for some kind hearted volunteers to help me on my business quest. I would really love to have some pictures of knitted socks in certain colorways of my yarn, to display alongside it. Soooo, I was thinking that maybe some of you most excellent fabulous knitters out there would be interested in some free yarn from my shop. All I'm asking for is a photo of your socks in exchange for the yarn. You get to keep your finished socks and then if you want to do more, I'll send you a new colorway. I am trying to make them myself and I simply don't have the time or hands :)

I thought this would be a great deal- free yarn for you. Great pictures that would help me immensly:)

If you are interested, please leave me a comment, and I'll start getting some yarn together to send to you. I need the following sock photos: Sweet Tart, Dutch Iris and Avalon. You can see the colors in my Etsy shop.

If you're not interested, that's OK too. I still luvs ya!

Whoa! I am SO ready to volunteer for you! That would give me an excellent reason to put other knitting on hold so I could get some socks made for myself.
Any of those colorways are wonderful.
Please, Please, Please let me!
(You know, I'll be spending a lot of time on my butt nursing with hands free in the next months. As long as the Harry Potter Book seven isn't released I can focus my whole attenions on them.)

Also, mentioning books - I am really getting into The Woman in White now. It is hard to put down!
Thanks for encouraging me to continue with it!
(I think you have my email if you want to email me.)

I'm actually going away tomorrow for a week or so, so getting in contact with me in that time might prove difficult. If it proves too much of a problem, don't worry too much about it.

Drats, Blogger keeps eating my comments (and if you wind up w/3 comments from me, I'm sorry LOL). I'd LOVE to volunteer - I so love test knitting but I love your colorways even more! I'm in if you're still in need of volunteers!!!

I may be able to go one better:

Lime & Violet are writing a sock book. We need yarn for test knitters, pictures of which will go in the book.

Interested? Drop me a note. :)

I would love to help you out!!!

I'm a new sock knitter, but it has come very easy to me. I usually knit lace and fair isle, so if you want something other than socks as well, I can do that too.

Okay so you already have the people you needed however I wanted to let you know that you can hit me up if you get more colorways.

Your stuff is so pretty!

I'm probably too late and not sure if you'd want to send international, but I'd love to volunteer. Love the Avalon and Navaho colourways!

 
At 6:26 PM, Blogger KC said...

I see you already have 21 other greedy - I mean, eager ;) - knitters volunteering, but just in case you need another person, I'd gladly knit socks from your lovely yarn and take a zillion pictures for you :)

Just saw your link at the Lime & Violet MB :)

I'd really love to - but I'm from europe, so the shipping costs might be too high for you. Yet if that's not an issue, I'd alove to knit some of your yarn - even more than one colour!
