Yarndale Sock Line destinations 2017

Here's where the Yarndale Sock Line 2017 socks have gone!

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!  Unfortunately, there were a lot of pairs of socks donated without any tags this year so I've only been able to list them as "unknown".  It's a real shame when this happens as if these were your socks, I can't tell you where they've gone!

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

    1. They went to Demelza Hospice, Heidi - you were on my list but I obviously managed to miss your name when I was flicking back and forth between documents! Sorry about that, I've updated the page now xx

  3. Thank you very much Christine for all the time, effort and organisation you put into the Sockline. It is such a pleasure to be part of this yarny sock community and seeing where the socks have gone is the icing on the cake - or should that be the snugly socks on the toes.

  4. You are deserving of a big big hug for all this work and for inspiring so many. I have knitted ten pairs of socks this year, all as gifts or for your appeal. I might make myself a pair but it is just such a pleasure to be involved in this.
    I have no idea which box I should have clicked as I very very rarely write comments but I was pleased to see where all our socks went thank you.

  5. Mine went to the Warrington Girl Guides for their boxes for the homeless. So they went from Black Sheep Wools Warrington, to Liverpool to be knitted. Then to Yorkshire, and then back to Warrington. A nice round trip!! Haha.
    Thank you for all your hard work in organising the Yarndale Sock Line Christine xx

  6. Thank you for all your time and patience in organising and sending the socks to all the charities, not to mention the true inspiration encouraging people like me to attempt to knit socks!!! I am 'smitten' and will be making more to send to you next year ;) XX

  7. I only learnt to knit socks this year and didn't get chance to send any to Yarndale but will do so I 2018.I have recently sent socks to Marie Curie hospices as listed above. I don't think they have yet reached their target of a pair of socks for each patient so if anyone has any spare time at the moment (!) I'm sure they would appreciate any socks made in the wool/colours mentioned above. Thanks to Christine for being so inspiring and Happy Christmas to everyone xx

  8. Wow! You've really worked so hard at this Christine. Thank you. I've already made 2 pairs ready for next year, and more to come. And I love that the recipients are from all over the UK (and France). Hoping you and yours have a peaceful, restful Christmas. xxx
