I was playing around on the computer on Friday, and I came across a twitter contest of sorts. @IndyCar wanted regular (as in, not racing insiders) followers to tweet why they should be mentioned in the Tweep edition of "Follow Friday". I replied that "I love IndyCar so much I designed a pair of socks to commemorate the Centennial", along with a link to this blog post, and whaddya know, I made the top 6 and got a mention and a #FF from @IndyCar!
As if that wasn't enough, I opened up my TweetDeck on Saturday and my eye fell on @chrisspangle's tweet about the current edition of his internet newspaper #IndyCar Times, and he linked to my blog post about the socks!
You seriously would have thought I'd won the lottery, the way I was jumping around and going all 'woohoo!' and everything.
And the pattern isn't even for sale yet. Hopefully some of the race fans who follow @IndyCar and @chrisspangle either knit socks, or know people who do. There have to be knitters who are IndyCar fans (and vice versa), because there's a yarn store that advertised in the 2010 program for the Indy 500!
