Negative post ahead

If you are only looking for happy knitting... stop reading here! Uh, Sock a Month 4 SUCKS! (edit, bitterness over, it was frustrating for the moment, emails get piled to the ceiling for volunteers, and some get missed) And I am/was just bitter! I completed a sock a month, which is fun, the KAL helped me both start and finish six pair of socks. but the girl that is recognizing the participants for my alphabet slot missed me three times. After gentle reminders, she caught two of them, but missed December. So no credit for my Grinchy Grouchy socks, no credit for a sock every month of the Sock a Month KAL, no entry in those prize drawings. Not that I am a sore loser, I do not "need" any more sock yarn, I could knit until 2009 and still have fiber left over. And I joined the Rockin' Sock Club, so more is coming my way anyway. It just kills some of the fun. I joined SAM5, but I might be changing my name to AfternoonMoon because there is already another Krista and it looks like she might have received my credit for January. Does that not completely blow? well, enough with the bitter, and back to Miter3!

I'm sorry you had such a negative experience with SAM4. I wish you had let me know about these problems via the main SAM4 e-mail address - or if you did and I failed to respond and fix things I'm very sorry. I tried my best to keep everything running smoothly and was under the impression my hostesses were doing the same. If you do decide to change your name to Afternoon Moon for SAM5, you would be assigned to my group, and I promise you I will make sure your credits get applied correctly. Or you can always e-mail Zonda at the SAM5 e-mail address and let her know of any missing credits. Again, I'm sorry to hear you had such a bad experience. It was a huge group and we really did try hard to keep everything under control. I hate to hear that you feel you were cheated.

That was a nice response from Karen! I've actually never had a problem and have been in since SAM2. (even won a beautiful sock yarn/pattern in one of them) I Hope you stay in for SAM5 -Oh good - I see you switched to "Afternoon Moon" Karen will take care of you!
