Chance to Win a Sock Kit

In celebration of my new foray into designing knitwear, I would like to give away one Trip Up The Nile Sock Kit.

This kit includes the pattern (both charts and written instructions), yarn and reinforcement yarn to knit a pair of Trip Up The Nile socks for your very own.

If you would like the chance to win a kit to knit your own pair of Trip Up The Nile Socks, then leave a comment on this post and let me know what your favorite period in history is and why by midnight, January 21st.  Then, on Wednesday, January 22nd, I’ll put everyone who has commented on this post (sorry, only one comment per person will count) into the random number generator and select a winner.

If you don’t win this kit, you can still purchase one, or you can just purchase the pattern and use your own yarn to knit the socks.

Let the contest begin!

    Phew, it looks like a challenge but I’d be up to it if I win! And I have been to the Nile although not on a boat trip up it. It’s a great design!

    I love British history,especially the time of Henry the 8th and Elizabeth. I just think the whole structure is fascinating.
    Thanks for the chance! (knitdoglover on Twitter.)

    I have to admit I always fell asleep in History! But my favorite time would have to be the early 1900’s. We’re talking pre-WWI. The world was about to expand with amazing technologies that haven’t stopped!

    Whee! The sock kit looks great. I have been wondering when we would begin seeing your amazing patterns for sale.

    Hmmm…favorite period in history. I am more of a futurist so this one is tough for me. But the ’60s are still interesting.

    I’d LUV to win this kit!
    As I’m quite the history nut,I am all over the place with a favorite time. I love Vikings and WWIl.

    I like the Egyptian period, but also the Merlin ole english kings and queens. Oh my how to chose:)
    The pattern looks cool.

    Funny you should design a pattern about my favorite history period…. Egyptian period because of the pyramids and King Tut.

  8. SandyC Says:

    I love Elizabethan times. Having said that, I am so into Downton Abby that it has taken over temporarily.

  9. KathrynA Says:

    Wow this looks like a really fun thing to knit!

    I love history, so it’s hard to pick one time period, but I think it would have to be Medieval history. I’m a sucker for the knights and swordfights (and yes, I know much of that is sensationalized, but still)!

    I really enjoy the Laura Ingalls Wilder period.
