FYI – sock design contest

I’m repeating this post off the Lorna’s Laces board on Ravelry, in case anyone is interested in the opportunity to design socks for LL’s fall line (with prizes!):

Hi everyone!!

It is getting to around that time of year again! The TNNA summer market is just around the corner and new colors have been popping up here and there around the studio for premier at the show. It’s all VERY exciting if you ask me!!

We love to get a chance to see what new and budding designers are up to and figured what better way than to have a sock design contest!

So, with no further delay here are the details:

Designs must be in Shepherd Sock yarn (color does not matter).

Submit 1 sock along with a written version of your pattern by May 14th to:
Lorna’s Laces Yarns
4229 N. Honore St.
Chicago, IL 60613
(Please securely attach your name, address & contact information to your sock so we can return it to you.)

You may also submit your design via high resolution digital image to yarn@lornaslaces.net with the subject line “sock contest submission” by May 14th.

The winning sock designs will become the sole property of Lorna’s Laces for distribution in our pattern line.

1st Prize: Publication of your pattern in the Lorna’s Laces pattern line, 3 copies of your pattern for yourself & 8 skeins of Shepherd Sock yarn in assorted colors (enough for 4 pairs of socks).

2nd Prize: Publication of your pattern in the Lorna’s Laces pattern line, 3 copies of your pattern for yourself & 4 skeins of Shepherd Sock yarn in assorted colors (enough for 2 pairs of socks).

3rd Prize: Publication of your pattern in the Lorna’s Laces pattern line, 3 copies of your pattern for yourself & 1 Little Can of Paint sock kit.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Cheers,
Amanda Allen
