As you know, back in March, we launched our first Hill Country Yarns Sock Pattern Contest and every single submission we received was incredible. Our judges had an extremely hard time narrowing down the winners to only one winner per yarn type, but narrow it down they did. Without further ado, the winners of the first Hill Country Yarns Sock Pattern Contest are:
- First place (winner of $100 worth of Hill Country Yarns): Holly Oshesky -- Sweet Pea Socks
- Second place (winner of $50 worth of Hill Country Yarns): Tyler Macek -- Vineyard Lace Socks
- Third place (winner of $25 worth of Hill Country Yarns): Aimee Abernathy -- Lotus Blossom Socks
In exchange for their winnings, these winners have allowed Hill Country Yarns the distinct honor of including each of their winning patterns in each of our 3 Hill Country Yarns Sock Club (series one) installments. These beautiful patterns are Hill Country Yarns exclusive patterns that are available only through our Hill Country Yarns Sock Club (series one). Unfortunately, sock club sign ups for series one are now closed, however our second series sign ups begin December 1st, 2008 so mark your calendars now!
Congratulations to all of our Hill Country Yarns Sock Pattern Contest winners and thanks to all who entered the contest!
Our second Hill Country Yarns Pattern Contest is scheduled to launch September 1st, 2007, so please check back then for details!

Those flowers are much more pink, but the beautiful Fuscia makes them look so much more orange!!!

We are delighted with the number of contestants we had for our first sock contest and expect even more contestants with each new contest we hold. At this time we plan to sponsor (at least) one sock pattern design contest each year, so start planning your next designs now!
Thank you again to all who participated in this contest -- each and every submission we've received is truly a work of art.

Design has been nailed down after working through stitch pattern combinations on two other socks. Now it's time to knit these out and take some purty pictures!
I'm loving this Instant Gratification yarn. It's gonna make a warm one.
Not many entrants in the contest, eh?

What I want to know and still have not seen addressed is this, are we e-mailing the pattern with photo of socks? Or, are we mailing (via US mail) the pattern and the actual socks?
To what e-mail address are we sending it if we are supposed to be sending them that way.
If we are supposed to be sending them via US mail to what address are we sending them.
My test knitter loved the yarn.
