Not too handy with a paintbrush?? We’ve got a little something for you too. We’ll place the top finalists on our Facebook page, where you can vote for the top 10! Due to technical sock-making reasons, Sock It to Me will then rank the top 3. Even if you can’t design a sock, you can still help to sway sock history by casting your vote!
So what are you waiting for?! Time to start sending in those brush strokes of genius! And don’t forget to check our Facebook when the voting begins!! GOOD LUCK! 🙂
