I'm gonna have to start carrying a half-knit sock around with me

Today I heard about a new contest, of sorts. The Yarn Harlot, a knitter from Canada, has challenged knitters everywhere to get a picture taken with a politician - or a famous person - where that person is holding a sock in the process of being knit.

It started when this woman saw Greg Kinnear somewhere, and asked to take a picture with him ... and her half-knit sock. Don't you love his expression???

Then another reader of the Yarn Harlot's blog got a picture of Barack Obama holding a sock-in-the-works. Her brother actually took this picture, and her camera didn't work, so this is the best it got to be, but still. It's Barack Obama holding a sock!!!
How cool is that? Click on the photos to see the rest of the story ...
The Yarn Harlot's dream is to hear one politician say to another politician something like "What's with all the socks? Have you been getting them too?"
