Thank you so much to everyone who knitted socks and made suggestions as to where they would be welcomed!  xx

PS  Some people sent more than one pair but I have only listed their name once for each organisation in case you were thinking that the number of names doesn't add up to the number of socks we have!

  1. Incredible work Christine, your dedication and organisation skills are gold star quality! It really is amazingly lovely to sit and think about all those pairs of feet that will be warmed by many thousands of woolly stitches, and how each one will hopefully feel like a hug. Priceless gifting - thank you so so much from all of us on the Yarndale team xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Thank you for visiting! I really appreciate you taking the time to read my blog! xx
