I can't believe it's a year since I started Sockamania. I thought I'd be luckyto get 25 members when I started it. Very quickly I had 50, which was my limit for a while. Now it's grown to around 400 (I think). A huge thank you to all those of you who have joined and especially those who've been here from the beginning. I'd love to see more people join in on the blog in the next year htough. If you don't finish your socks please post some progress pics so we can see which yarn you're using etc.

There will be lots of special celebratory stuff going on this month. A very special knitalong too which has nothing to do with socks. The KAL will be revealed on Monday 5th May.

There will be some special prize draws this month. As well as a draw for finsihed pairs I'm also doing a draw for everyone who's posted at least one progress pic this month. So get those cameras clicking.

And some special competitions. First one in a few days.

And as a special gift to all our members, I'll be posting previous Sockamaina patterns on the Google group. They'll only be available for a few days though so be quick to download them or print them off. I'll announce on theblog when I make a previous pattern available, so keep checking often.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Barb W, Pam and Pixie for all their help. Without them Sockamania wouldn't still be going.

I'll be back on Monday with details of our special KAL and the first competition.

Happy knitting,

I'm excited about all the birthday celebration events this month, particularly being able to download past patterns. I didn't join until December, so I'm hoping to catch up. Thanks, Anni!
