September pattern number 2 - a name competition


I've nearly finished the pattern for the 2nd pair of September socks. These are designed with men in mind but make great unisex socks. However, I can't think of a name so I've decided to have a 'name the sock' competition. The winner will win a sock kit containing the October Sock Variety club yarn and pattern and a project bag. Only members of Sockamania can enter this competition. Post your entries in the comments on this post only.

The competition will close at 6pm UK time on Saturday 5 September. I will post the winner Saturday night or sometime Sunday.

This is one of two patterns available for the September knitalong. Scroll down a couple of posts for details of the other pattern and details of this month's prizes.

I'll be posting this pattern without a name on the Google group very soon. Unfortunately as this is the last month for Sockamania sign ups for new members is now closed.

Happy knitting,

The look reminds me of a wall so I go for "Bricks and Mortar"

It reminds me of the Colosseum. I love the pattern and can hardly wait to get started.

It looks like "Basket Weave" to me. How about that name or "The Father-in-Law Sock Pattern"? I will be using this pattern to make my Father-in-laws Christmas gift. It's PERFECT! and just what I was looking for.

PS: Haven't heard back from you yet. Let me know.

I think they are sturdy, so I would say Sturdy-socks.

Eva said...

I suggest "His-and-hers"

Lovely pattern
The first I got in mind was "Criss-Cross"

How about "Speed Bump(s)" Typical rib pattern goes pretty fast, but to change it every few rows keeps you under control and aware of what is ahead. Also, many of my guy friends like to see how fast they can go over speed bumps! kind of a challenge in the road. :)

Oh bummer. I was too late, been taking care of a son with pneumonie and have been at the hospital for the last three days. Well this doesn't count but they look Squishy to me so I would call them Squishy. I think I will knit this pair this month.
