Who wants to win? **UPDATED**

**UPDATE**
I went to random.org and generated a random integer between 1 and 378. The winner is......comment #118. I can't believe it, Traci you won! Not only a real life friend, but a real life friend who owns a whole bunch of boring socks! Here's what your new socks look like now though......you might have to wear your boring socks for a couple more weeks!

Whoo Hoo! It's time for a giveaway!

I had so much fun doing it last time, and check out the adorable wee one who won the hat that I knit.

So I've got something special this time. I was just talking last week about my new addiction of knitting socks. I mentioned how amazing hand knit socks feel. Several mentioned that they didn't know how hand knit socks felt cause they'd never had a pair. WELL.....

Now's your chance to win you very own pair of hand knit socks. It might take a couple of weeks to get them to the winner though cause this is what they look like right now....

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. You'll be entered to win the socks that currently do not exist. I'll draw a number for the winner on Friday, February 1st (Is it really February on Friday? Wow, where has my January gone?).

And go check out all of the other giveaways happening this week at Shannon's. Good Luck!
Carrie
