It's been a lot of fun hosting this sock themed photo competition! We've seen some truly impressive sock knitting; from huge numbers of socks to intricately detailed socks, all yarn types and colours, both knit and crochet. We've heard from people who love to make socks, those who are new to sock knitting, and some very lucky people who receive lots of hand knit socks!
Here are some of the entries that were emailed to us and posted online.
All of the socks below were knit in one year by a new sock knitter.
These 50 pairs of socks were knit for one lucky person's 50th birthday by her mum!
It was fantastic to see the progress made on these socks as the afterthought heel was added.
And here are 55 pairs of socks that were brought in to the shop all knit by one avid sock knitter!
We've picked a random winner from all the sock photo entries. Ella has done this by first collating the names of everyone who entered via Facebook, Instagram, Ravelry and email into an excel spread sheet, which assigns each entry with a number. We then found an online random number generator and let it pick a random number for us. This time the winner is: Stefan! Congratulations!
Thank you to everyone who entered and shared their sock making with us, we've been very inspired!
