Sock The Vote: A little birdie told us that there is an event called Sock The Vote on the Singlehandedknits Podcast group. You can learn more about it by going to the Rav group or watching the Singlehandedknits podcast. We were recommended by yarn-vs-zombies as a team mascot! So if you are a member of the group or want to do the event (there are kits for the toe-up and cuff down parties, and you can also be a member of the green party, where no purchase is available). Sounds like fun!
