You can buy each color individually through your LYS... check you favorite store for availability.
SOCK HOT SPOTS
This month SWTC will join Knitters Magazine and our favorite yarn stores in launching the SOX HOT SPOTS program. It is one of the largest Sock Contests and year long sock adventures that this industry has ever seen. It's torture not to be able to tell you more. You know me - I can't keep a secret! I will be at the opening ceremonies of Stitches West when they announce all of the details and will report to all of you as soon as the news is out. We'll also get you the official contest link with details of all of the sock catagories and prizes ( THEY ARE HUGE!!!!!). If you are in California - GET YOUR NEEDLES TO STITCHES!
Its more than a contest
Look for SOX HOT SPOTS signs in your local stores. You'll notice them by the bright oranges SHS logo in their store. They'll be stocked up all year in Tofutsies sock yarn so that you can enter this contest. You'll also find the support you need in these awesome stores. Talk to your local merchant and find out what they have planned. Some will host our TOFUTSIES BOOT CAMP and we're hearing others have some outstanding classes lined up to help you in your quest for the perfect sock! Watch our website and watch for news about our Travelling Socks.... a team game creating the wildest socks you can imagine! There is a Travelling sock group on Ravelry . Log in and join in. Say hi to us on Ravelry - we are SWTCGirlz.
