Contest deadline moved to May!

For those interested in participating in the Socks Revived Design Contest, I have officially moved the deadline from 4/19 to 5/21 at 8 p.m. EST. I apologize if this inconveniences anyone – especially those rushing to finish now – and I hope most people will feel relieved for more time.

Unfortunately, Aaron and I don’t think we can get this off the ground right in the middle of a cross-country move that was supposed to happen in July, but might be happening in the next several weeks. It is best to extend the deadline, rather than close the contest and not announce winners for a month because we can’t get organized.

I HOPE you will not be angry, I HOPE you will still enter, I am thrilled with the entries that have come through so far, and I look forward to seeing more!

Best of luck and please let me know if you have any questions! I will try to respond as quickly as I can.

    Sudden cross country move? ouch.

    I totally wasn’t thinking of entering, I hadn’t knit any socks since Xmas (6 pairs) and was totally in a sock-free zone in Feb and March, but now that it’s been extended… Maybe this is a bandwagon I can jump on without overextending myself. Thanks for bringing socks back. Good luck with the move.

    I’m still having trouble signing up for the contest. When I try to fill in the info on the sign-in page, it takes me to an error screen that says “We’re sorry, but something went wrong” and that you’ve been notified of the problem.

    I contacted Aaron about this a few days ago and got a quick reply saying he’d take a look at it. I understand it might not be a priority now since you sound pretty busy, but I thought I’d let you know it’s still happening. (I also tried going through IE instead of my usual Firefox, but got the same result.)

    Good luck with the move, and I’m really looking forward to entering this contest!

    Just a quick update for anyone reading the comments…

    After a software upgrade on the web host server, the sign-up process developed a snag. I’ve fixed the problem and it should all be working smoothly now. If you tried to sign up in the last few days and couldn’t, please give it another try!
