Happy Monday, ESK fans! It’s December. No, really, this is even the SECOND week in December already! Where has the year gone? How is there only a week left in the Sock-A-Long?!?
Remember how excited we all were to knit those socks? Remember how we were all so sure we could finish them in a little over two months? OK, so Erin wasn’t exactly sure, but I was a bit overconfident that I would have them done in no time. And here I sit, with only two-thirds of one sock finished while Erin’s already on her second sock! I guess that’s what happens when I suddenly decide I have all kinds of time to knock out an armload of gift knits – poor sock gets ignored. 😦
But from the looks of our Fall Sock-A-Long Fun thread on Ravelry, a lot of you are making fantastic progress! Which is great because there’s only ONE week left to be eligible for the contest! Next Monday (December 16) we’ll open the Sock-A-Long Finished Object thread for everyone to post beautiful photos of their *completed* socks. We’ll give everyone some time to get the photos up and there will be two prizes – one based on user votes and the other for participation chosen at random. Stay tuned to the Ravelry group for more details!

Please remember that we are always working our hardest to make your shopping experience the best it can possibly be, but there aren’t many of us. So we ask that if you have customer service questions you email us directly (eatsleepknit @ eatsleepknit.com) rather than ask us here on the blog, on our Facebook page, or in our Ravelry group. We do try to keep up with all the contact points, but we can only guarantee you’ll get the help you need with direct emails. Thanks!
Another big Thank You to everyone sending us lovely notes and cards! I’m about to hang up a *second* bulletin board in our front room so we can show all of them off at once! Not only are they really sweet, they’re making me quite jealous of wherever y’all buy your stationery! So adorable!
If you’ve waited until The Last Possible Moment to make holiday gifts, keep your eyes peeled for some more quick project patterns coming later this week! (FYI: If they’re Hanukkah presents, you’re officially late! :D)
And lastly, if you have a topic you’d like us to cover on the blog, please let us know! We’re a creative bunch, but since we’re here to help you – let us know what you’d like to see from us! 🙂
