5280 SOCK CHALLENGE

Joanne Conklin of Keep Talking has come up with this great idea to challenge Denver Knits to knit 5,280 pairs of socks.

Here's a graph I made for Denver Knits 5280 Sock Challenge. It is supposed to be used to depict your fav pro-teams colors (choose one team color), but I guess you could use it all together. All of the grey is supposed to be white, something happened in the translation....I am sure that are other graphs out there from the past, I hope you like this one, feel free email me for a decent version. It may look cool as an insertion in anyone's favorite pattern, with or without the stripes knitted around the top, heels and toes.....and the rest to be knitted in your fav sock stash. Please fool around to get your right gauge. I hope it is appreciated and thanks for the look....if you use it, please remember to email it to Joanne so she can post it!

This reminds me of the Harlot's sock mojo goin' on about the Socks that Rock and knitter's need for Representation!!!! You know the winds of change blowin', kinda like more socks to show representation, or Bob Dylan singing "The Times They Are A Changin". It's like sock mania out there in the blog-o-sphere.

I'm afraid that the 5280 Challenge has nothing at all to do with the Yarn Harlot. Perhaps you can correct the text of your post.

Great idea for a sock design. I look forward to seeing finished socks.
