Hello and Welcome!

Hi, it's eKNITabeth again...
The 52 Pair Plunge was certainly a challenge... but folks have been asking for an encore!

Welcome to 52PP II!

The Challenge
- Knit 52 pairs of socks in one calendar year (midnight 1 June 2008 - midnight 1 June 2009)
- Socks may be any pattern, any yarn, any size (baby, child, adult) -- leg warmers, knitted boots, slippers, etc. do not count because they are not socks!

The Sign-Ups
- If you want to participate, email the following items to me (eknitabeth@gmail.com) by 31 May 2008:
  • your name (first name & last initial, nickname, or username)
  • where you're from (state or country, if outside USA)
  • your email address
  • your website address (if applicable)

- You will receive a confirmation email by 1 June 2008 (& the first 99 participants will receive an invitation to be an author on the 52PP II website)
- Start knitting!

The Benefits
- You, your friends, your family members, and maybe even some strangers (yay charities!) will end up with warm feet
- You can bounce questions and ideas off other knitters
- You can learn and perfect new techniques
- You can try/write/share that pattern you've been dreaming about
- You can finally prove to people that you really are off the DEEP END... hehehe

Hey gang, don't forget to tell your friends to join!
(or watch! --> ask about your own "Sock Voyeur" button!)

Happy Knitting!
