A sock beginners giveaway.


I have such a lot of unfinished projects. And most of them are socks! I have two pairs on the needles for dear husband, 1 pair for Helen, and 1 pair for Heather. Also have a few more planned. And so I was sorting through these projects earlier and I wondered if other knitters were as fond of knitting socks as I am. Well half pairs anyway.......
So I thought why not spread the sock addiction? And how better than a little giveaway to tempt you all to take up the challenge?
So here you are, a complete sock knitting kit to be had. A set of five 2.5mm DPN's, a ball of Patons cotton 4ply (enough for one pair of adult socks), a really easy to follow pattern, and a handy little sock knitters guide. OK I know the idea of an adult in white socks might be a little bleurgh, but it's great yarn to practise with, you can dye it any colour you wish if you like the finished socks, and best of all...it's free!
So if you want to see what all the sock fuss is about then just leave me a comment before next Monday and the kit could be yours.

I know there has got to be something to this sock knitting, and DH seems to have a "thing" for hand knitted socks, so I am going to have to take the plunge sooner or later!

Can I have it? My mum knits a lot of socks but unfortunalty she lives in germany and is not close to me at all. Would really love to learn as it remains me so much of my mother.

Hmmmm...sounds like a challenge - may have to invest in some....still got lots of other wips though (works in progress) so I suppose one more wouldn't hurt

My boys all want me to knit socks for them this winter, but I've only ever done baby/toddler jumpers, or bootees on 2 needles. I would love to join the sock knitting addiction, but do not know where to start!!!
This could be it!!

Oh, I have been hunting in the library, for a really easy book to learn how, as the wools for socks are so lovely, and of course my adiction just has to get bigger! Would love a new passion for the winter, and can't think of a more lovely mama to help put it into action!
