#SocksOfFebruary2021 - an IG challenge

Do you like making socks? Are you on Instagram? Then #SocksOfFebruary2021 is for you!

In February, @YarnStreetUK and I (@VikkiBirdDesigns) are hosting a photo prompt challenge over on Instagram. The theme is socks, and the hashtag is #SocksOfFebruary2021

Every day in February has a different theme, and the idea is that you post a photo to Instagram that works for that theme – be as literal or as inventive as you like! Hopefully we’ll all find lots of inspiration and new sock knitting friends to chat to online. I would love you to take part! Don’t worry about posting everyday, just post for the days that inspire you. Obviously I’ll be trying to do the whole month, let’s see if I manage!

In case you want to get ahead of the game, here’s a full list of the prompts for the month:

Day 1. Work in Progress – Say hi, share your current WIP, or go all the way and share your sock journey.

Day 2. My Sock Collection – Let’s show off those woolly socks.

Day 3. Indie Dyed Yarn – Colourful creations in indie dyed yarn, show off your favourites!
