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
