Advent Sock Kit Giveaway


Remember these socks? Well, over the course of the year, I've accumulated enough scraps of sock yarn to make up a new set of Advent sock skeins. Just in time for the Christmas season/Hanukkah/winter solstice!(because tiny skeins of sock yarn lend themselves to most major festivities). In order to be in with a chance to win - wait for it! -
  • 23 little balls of sock yarn
    Mostly a wool/nylon mix, one or two little balls of cotton. Some Kool-Aid dyed, most standard German yarns. Each ball weighs approx 20 g (my socks weigh approximately 12g each, so these mini skeins should be enough for a wee sock.)
  • one finished sock to start you off 
  • 1 hook - 3.5 mm
  • 1 set of foam number stickers
All you have to do is leave a comment below with a contactable address - a link to your blog / your user name on Ravelry or Crochetville / your email address (= in which case, your comment will not be published publicly, I'll just enter your name on the list.)

The closing date is the 7th November, 2011.

I'd like to be entered as well - here in Japan there is definitely a shortage of good colourful and affordable yarn, not to mention how all the foreign students would scream of joy to get such a cute little sock for Christmas! Regards! Hanna
