    Default SOCKS. Pointless Prize Thereof.

    Okay I have been crowd shamed into sponsoring this pointless prize again. Last year we had over 150 entries. I made it much more complicated that it needed to be, so will simplify it this year.

    1. Take a photo of your socks. Preferably with cycling shoes but whatever.

    2. Post on this thread.

    3. On the first day of Spring, I will choose my 10 favorites. I will randomly choose ONE and that ONE is the winner. Prize to be determined by me but certainly sock or sock related.

    4. And 3-2-1... GO.

    5. BOOMER you are limited to ONE ENTRY per WEEK. The Queen has spoken.


    Regards, Jessica

    My favorite mom knitted bike socks with toe improvisation.

    Birthday gift from a friend. I posted the photo in the wrong place earlier. This forum is bewildering in the number of wrong places one can end up!

    They're not in bike shoes b/c my shoes are still drying from this morning's wet ride. But I got the wizard so it was worth it!

    You really want to submit this early in the week? What happens if you come across some bright & fun pair of sock you had forgotten about in the back of your sock drawer come Thursday???

    Not a contender, but these are my waterproof socks. Either they are on the wrong feet, of they were designed by Yoda.

    As a defending Sock Champion, I am limiting myself, following the QOS’s edict #5 above, to not only weekly submissions, but also socks that I didn’t post in last year’s #BAFS2020 #sockgame competition, in the spirit of fairness for less worthy contenders. Stay tuned for next week’s newer, brighter n’ funner submission!;-)

    I call these my "Tequila Sunrise" socks due to the color pattern. They were hand-knitted for me by the BEST riding partner ever, Lefty Laura. This photo from today is when I was wearing them over another pair of socks and the bottom of my riding pants. And sadly, my feet were STILL cold so cut my ride short! But if I'd been wearing booties, you wouldn't have been able to see these excellent socks!Click image for larger version.
