Time for a contest

So what happens when you start knitting just one thing on 1/1/08? Say of instance an obsessive sock knitter decided to knit baby socks. And this obsessive sock knitter knit nothing but baby socks for 20 days straight? If she worked 60 hours a week and squeezed in knitting around that schedule how many pair of baby socks do you think she's be able to finish to mail off to Afghans for Afghans? Take a guess. Winner will be drawn on Friday 1/25/08 at 12 est.

Well, I'm guessing 50 because they are tiny and probably quick and addictive to knit. :)

sophanne said...

I'm going to guess 36. Good for you!

Amy said...

I'm going to guess 40.

Lovs2Knit said...

I'm going with 30! Baby socks are so fun to knit.

sydney said...

I'm going to guess 25. Even though they're tiny, 60 hours a week is a big chunk of time. Baby socks are fun though.

ikkinlala said...

I'll guess 16 pairs. They sure are cute!

trek said...

10 - good job, too

Dee said...

Well, somebody already has my two first answers so I'll go with 28.

Barb said...

fun contest!! i'm going to guess 64 pairs :)

sweet said...

26 pairs is my guess, i love knitting baby socks too.

gypsyknits said...

Oh my gosh woman! I'm guessing 12 pairs.
Regardless whether I win or not, you have the trophy for knitter of the year. :)

Maureen said...

I know there are more pairs than one can see and my other guesses were guessed already... so I will go with 15 pairs of socks. Nice job! I too love knitting kid sized socks!

Wool Winder said...

I know you can crank out these baby socks quickly. I'll guess 21 pairs.

evergreenknits said...

I'll guess 36 -- sure looks like a full bag of socks there!

And I posted about your contest to WiKnit

Miss T said...

I'll guess 23. Lots of happy little feet!

allergicmom said...

I'll guess 29 pairs because no one else has put that number in yet! Good work!

monica said...

I'm going to say 22 pairs (but only because someone else already guessed 21!)

Elaine said...

I'll go with 44 pair. A lot I know, but I'm an obsessive and so I'm figuring you can do it.

Beth said...

21 is my lucky number, so that's my guess.

Good for you, however many there are!

dragonxser said...

I am thinking maybe 24 pairs - and what fun for a great cause :)

blogless in NJ said...

I'll try 39.

purple-power said...

I'm feeling lucky - so I'll try 37.

cthulhulovesme said...

I'll guess 34. :)

Rachel O said...

If more than one person can guess the same number, I'll go with 29. If not, it looks like 31 is still free to I'll go with that.

You didn't say whether the person with the correct guess won, and if so, how you would resolve ties.

Marlyn said...

42.

Turtle said...

23 pairs! I figure one pair a day with a few extras thrown in!

Missy said...

41 pairs. They are so cute and tiny! Thanks for the contest!

: )

adrienne said...

lots of pairs ;oP

i would guess 27 pairs!

Dana said...

It looks like my lucky number has been guessed already, but I have to stick with it anyway since it sounds like a reasonable answer: 24 pairs of baby socks.

Natalie said...

15 pairs - 30 socks - they are too cute!

Chris said...

I'm guess 17 pairs because 17's my significant number. :)

sjmercure said...

I'm guessing 19 pairs. way cute!

Jessie said...

Being a compulsive knitter myself, I figure 2 pair per night since they're tiny, plus a few more.

I'll try 43 since it's not taken yet

Ruth said...

18 pairs? Great job no matter now many you did!

Patricia said...

Well, I'm going to guess 42 pair.

OzKnitter said...

Great job! So many guesses already, so I'll go with 33 pairs, as it hasn't be taken yet.

squiggi said...

I'm thinking 38. just seems like a nice round number.

Rachel said...

Ooo, fun contest. Okay, I'm guessing 53 pairs of socks. What a great idea! Do you use a special pattern, or do you just "wing-it"? That's such a great idea for left-over sock yarn.

Heide said...

My guess is 28 pairs. I now have an urge to knit little socks too! Very sweet.

tripletsmom said...

I'll guess 36 pair. What a cute contest.

Carol said...

I'll say......43 pair

Genuine-Lye said...

23 pairs. Random number that came into my head. Also, I thought the dishcloth swap thing was cool, too bad I heard about it AFTER registration closed. I only started knitting them recently, anyway. I'm currently test knitting a pattern, and that's fun. Baby socks must be kind of like dishcloths: instant gratification, and a weird feeling of nesting-ness. And babies don't even like me, and I'm terrible at anything homey-related. Go figure.

Redheadskydiver said...

Karen said...

I will guess 33 pair! Aren't your hands aching? Great thing you're doing.

PBnJ said...

I guess 29 pair. Thanks for helping to warm some sweet little footsies!

Mara said...

Goodness I think most of the numbers have shown up at least twice!

Hmm, well my b-day is 3/31 and I'll be 27. My sweeties is 4/20 & he'll be 36. I think most of those numbers are taken, soo I'll just go with...13 because it is a fun number.


Btw, I haven't learned to knit on needles, yet. I loom knit, hairpin lace, and Tunisian crochet.

cksknitter said...

I guess 8 pair.
