For Your Consideration.

For those of you in the knitting and yarn world, it’s no secret that Sock Summit is coming up in a little over a week. For those of you not in the knitting and yarn world, why yes, we can spend an entire weekend talking about just socks.  Why do you ask?  (And if you give us any trouble about it, not only will you not get any handknit socks, we just might poke you with our pointy sticks to boot.)

In conjunction with the upcoming Summit, Ravlery is hosting a Dye for Glory contest, wherein dyers submit yarns they’ve created specifically for socks.  In light of that I’d like to mention two lovely, independent dye houses. 

The first is Actual Size Creations located here in Seattle and makes super yummy yarns.  I’ve got a pair in her sock yarn on the needles right now.  Her eye for color is outstanding. You will find her yarns in the Kettled, Mosaic, and Painted categories.

The other is Frog Creek Fibers just outside of Portland Oregon.  They’re a three woman team working together to make lovely colorways.  You can find them in the Dipped category.

They both make absolutlely lovely colorways in delicious squooshy yarns. August 1st is your last chance to vote. Go give these ladies the recognition they deserve!
