I rarely enter contests because it’s not likely I’ll win and I’d rather watch. For some reason, I just loved Pom Pom Quarterly’s brilliant #valentoes competition, which took place over the course of several days last week in the lead up to Valentine’s Day. The call was to post your hand knit socks with the aforementioned hash tag and the magazine would pick a daily winner and raffle off a prize.

I just love sock knitting. Every Valentine’s Day, I gift my guy a pair of hand knit socks, and for the rest of the year, I get to see his appreciation in all the times he wears them (which is a lot). And so, this particular contest spoke to me. So I entered. Two days.

And on the second day, I won. It is still shocking to me, out of so many gorgeous entries, I would be the day’s choice. I won an incredible shocking pink mega skein from Kettle Yarn Co. and I couldn’t be more excited to knit with it.
