Remember scavenger hunts?

Fun, weren’t they?   This one was put on by an awesome group on Ravelry called Sock Knitters Anonymous.  The rules are all listed right here, but in a nutshell, you earned points by taking pictures of your sock doing certain things, or in certain situations.  For example,

a picture showing that the sock was cast on during the scavenger hunt,

a picture showing the sock on a moving vehicle other than a car (we used a bulldozer thing),

the sock being held by someone in uniform,

the sock in front of (a small part of) the stash, and also under water,

the sock in front of the lys,

the sock dining out, and an extra one if the server holds it for you,

(this was not a point earning shot, but it’s amusing.  I was attempting to explain to David which button to press, and as he was leaning forward to show me the top of the camera, I actually pressed his finger down on the button.),

Knitting in public (or in this case at a wedding reception of 2 of hubby’s friends),

dancing, and yes, that’s the YMCA,

nursing while knitting was my attempt at extreme knitting,

the sock on a bike, with a sign in more than 5 languages, and held by non-knitters and possibly also while engaging in an extreme sport.  Can you tell this was the last shot and we were trying to fit as many things in as we could?

I’m no where near winning as far as total points were concerned, but it was a blast, and the kids had so much fun helping me think of things to combine in different shots.  The good thing is we had fun, and we’re so totally doing it next year!
