Before I annouce the winners, I just want to say what a FANFUCKINGTASTIC time I had doing this. Yes it got crazy. Yes I lost some sleep. But really, I met so many great people and got to share my love of yarn and this pattern and got to watch other people love the pattern, and sometimes the yarn, and that's just great. Knitblogging at its finest! I can't say I'll be hosting another KAL anytime soon, but I wouldn't trade this one for the world. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Thank you all so much for knitting along! And just so you don't feel like you're walking away emtpy handed, I made you all a button. WEAR IT PROUD!!!
Now, to annouce the winners. Let's bring out the accountants from Ernst & Young to explain the choosing:
The list of winners was dumped into an Excel spreadsheet in the order they appeared in THE LIST. The Internet Random Generator was then employed to choose six integers between 1 and 174. The numbers chosen were: 1 8 97 101 115 156.
And without further ado, the winners are:

Congratulations to all the winners! Email me your address and your choice of Socks That Rock. Thanks! For those of you still knitting, KEEP ON KEEPING ON! You will not be disappointed. (And Noelle's got some buttons for you too.)
THANK YOU ALL FOR KNITTING WITH ME!!!

Oh the humanity, I just know I would have been number 7!! It was my triple lutz, wasn't it? I know, I know, I just wasn't focused, and I landed too low...
Was it the spangles? Too many sequins??? SOB...

Thanks for hosting! I ended up being a Jaycrawler, but will get to that finish line if it kills me.
Congratulations to all the finishers ... and to the winners of the drawing! Lucky ducks.

Love you, Cara. YOU rock MY socks.

Wow! I am so thrilled to have participated and finished at all, given how little knitting time I have these days, and to win is just amazing. I loved this knitalong, it was so fun Cara. Thanks. I'll email you.

Potentially silly question -- did you keep any stats on what size needles people used? I just started mine in Socks that Rock and size 1s appear to be too large so I was wondering if the pattern will compensate for the beginning of the sock looking too large. Does this make any sense? Thanks!
