Dye for Glory Winners

So much color and so much talent. As I said earlier this has been such a joy

One of the things that’s been super about the whole Sock Summit thing (and we think the fact that we can still think of super things is a very good sign) is the way that every time one of us has a big idea, it’s caught on like magic and spread like wildfire.  One of the most fantastic things has been the Dye for Glory contest over at Ravelry – which accomplished exactly what we were hoping, that dyers would get a little face time, that we would all get to see some of their clever work and that they might sell a little yarn and boost their businesses. (I know that worked because one several of my favourite skeins didn’t win and I still intend to hunt them down and buy them in the Marketplace.)

In the end, 14 557 people voted and 154 828 votes were cast, and the masses have spoken. 

Hop on over to the Results Page and you can see the grand and glorious winners, and if you’d like to see them in person, we’re going to round up a skein of each and put them in the Colour me Crazy Booth for the whole world to see.  Congratulations Dyers.  We love the way you do things, and a thousand thanks to Casey, Jess, Mary-Heather from Ravelry.  You’re pretty freakin’ awesome too.

You all have voted and I mean you all have voted, over 10,000 voters with over 150,000 votes. How cool is that eh?

Thanks to all the dyers who contributed their lovely work and everyone who voted and Casey, Jess and Mary- Heather for all of their hard work on this.

    Thanks Tina and Stephanie for letting us all have the chance to play! It was great fun! It’s so neat to see what all the other dyers came up with. I hope the Summit is great, goes smoothly, and you have a great time!

  2. Yay for results!  I had my fingers and toes crossed for The Knit Witch.  Is there any way of knowing which of her yarns was a runner up?

  3. Yay! What a treat it was to see the work of all those dyers together in one place! And Georgia Peach was one of the winners? Cool, I pre-ordered some of that the moment I saw it in the lineup. It will arrive here about the time I’ll be up to knitting again post-op. My little celebratory corner of Sock Summit, arriving right here.

  4. Thank you for the chance to pimp my yarn in front of everybody on Ravelry!!  I had a blast participating in Dye for Glory.  A few skeins of my special colorway have already sold, and a few more are spoken for.  I’m a happy dyer today!

    On a complete aside (the yarns are fabulous by the way – I so want the weasley sock yarn but am a little too far away sadly….) I notice you have a Flylady duster! Sorry – just had to say as I got very excited.

    The Dye for Glory was one fantastic event, for sure.  I want to thank you for all you did and gave up so that so many knitters could have such a wonderful week-end.  As far as I could see and others could see everything was just perfect.  What a fabulous idea!
