Tomorrow is the start date for Tour de Sock, an annual speed-knitting competition named after the famous bike race taking place during the summer in France. During our two months sock knitting tour, six sock patterns are realeased and competitors race to finish each pair of socks in the given time frame, usually 10-11 days. There is a small registration fee and most of it goes to Doctors Without Borders - so this is not only a fab event for all sock knitting enthusiasts, but also helps a great cause. Oh, and there are prizes to win, too, not only for the ones fastest with their needles, but also some random prizes.
The patterns stay a secret until the day they are realease, but before the event starts, there is a supply list given to the pariticipants. Usually in the list the supplies are just called 'sock a' and 'sock b' and so on, but this year Sarah, the organiser of this terrific event, used the names of the houses in Games of Thrown as bullet... and for the pattern realsed tomorrow the supply under 'Baratheon' is needed... I already made my choice. :)
The even takes place on Ravelry, and it is still time to join the fun.
