Advent Socks - Kit Giveaway!

As I plough my way throught my little socks, I'm beginning to accummulate quite a number of leftover balls of yarn, so just to make life a bit more exciting in the Gingerbread House, I thought I'd organise a little giveaway.

What's in the Advent Sock Kit?
  • 24 little balls of sock yarn
  • Mostly a wool/nylon mix, one or two little balls of cotton. Each ball weighs between 13 - 18 g (my socks weigh approximately 12g each, so these mini skeins should be enough for a wee sock.)
  • 1 hook - 3.5 mm
  • 1 set of foam number stickers
  • some black card to make the circles
and ... wait for it!
  • 24 wooden clothes pegs
What do you have to do? Leave a comment (and please leave a link to your blog or your email address so I can contact you if you're the lucky winner of all this swag, hehe. Comments that contain personal info will not be published but you will of course be included nonetheless!) If you can't leave a comment but you know me under another nom-de-plume in cyberspace, send me a PM.

I'll compile a list of interested people and put their names into a hat ... And on the 20th August, I'll get one of the unwitting protagonists in my cyberspace life (Mr Gingerbread or my freshly-married Gingerbread Sister, who will be visiting) will pull a name from a hat with a hugely dramatic flourish. After that, it's up to you to get down to work and start churning out your socks in time for Advent!

Wow, what a beautiful giveaway. I will jump in the pot. I must have luck - you will pull the winner one day after my birthday. ;o)

Have a beautiful (Rest-)Day.

Lovely greets,

I've been subscribed to your blog for several months now
I do not comment often but read every post
and as you no doubt know
a giveaway brings us all to the 'Post a Comment' box.
I LOVE knitting sox 2-at-a-time using one circular needle
haven't been able to knit sox for a number of months -
but just this past week decided it is time to get knitting again
last night was Knit Nite for our group of about a dozen or so gals who love yarn to spend the evening exchanging ideas and projects
your giveaway sounds like a generous offer
thank you for giving me the opportunity to take part.
Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

Count me in. I'm planning to try the sock pattern after my current obligations are finished. I do read your blog as I do lots of others every day or every other day :) Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Wonderful! thanks and I hope to be included :)

The only prize draw I've ever won was for a basket of cleaning products. The cosmos was having a little jest that day, obviously.
Fingers crossed that this time I win an item that I will actually use!
This is a very generous thing to do. Thank you.

I'm usually a silent reader, but this time I have to comment, because this idea is great and I really want my own christmas-sock-calender. Yours looks fabulous!
