Sockapaloooza Begins!

Greetings, Sockapalooozers! Today is a triple red-letter day, an exclamation point day.


Pholph's Scrabble Generator   My Scrabble© Score is: 40.   What is your score? Get it here.

Today is the day true blue Alison and her tech guys are sending out the match ups for the 600+ participants in Sockapaloooza. Hooray for the tech guys! I have no idea how long it takes to prepare and send out 600+ individual secret sock pal email messages. I just hope the tech guys are well provided with Tech Guy socks (wink, wink).

Every Sockapaloooza participant has a secret pal to knit for, a secret pal knitting for them, and a sock sister. I'm excited and honored that Alison recruited me to serve as a sock sister to a small corner of the vast Sockapaloooza universe.

Sock sisters collect updates on sock progress, which are posted every Tuesday on the Sockapaloooza blog. Much of the fun of this knit-along is getting to watch socks-in-progress and receiving comments from other Sockapalooozers, so do feel free to report often on your own progress and to comment generously on the progress of others.

When the corrected list of participants is ready, I'm going to send an email to all my sock little sisters and brothers. In the meantime, if you signed up for Sockapaloooza and think I'm your sock big sister but have an uneasy feeling something in Sockapalooozaland is not quite right, never fear! Contact me at jerseyknitter [at] gmail [dot] com and we'll try to set things right.

Have you waited and waited and waited for this day? Are you ready to make some feet happy? The wait is over! Get to know your pal a bit, then let's get sockin'! Sockapaloooza begins!

Hi Ina! Thanks for helping out Alison and being my sock sister!'

This is my first exchange of any kind...and I am so excited to find just the perfect yarn for my pal!

Love all of the buttons on your site!
