The UK Hand Knitting Association is looking for some knitters who want to hone their sock-knitting skills, or just knit some cute little socks, that will be used as bunting to decorate care homes and other places during the festive season.
There are a few patterns on their website to get you started, but I’m sure any little sock in festive colors would be appreciated. There’s even a crochet version if you want to try your hand at crocheting a sock.
The deadline for getting stockings to them is Dec. 9, so people overseas could certainly do it if they wanted as well.
People planning to attend the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate in November can drop socks off there, otherwise they can be mailed to:
Christmas Stocking Appeal
60 Bridge Road East
Welwyn Garden City
Herts AL7 1JU
What a fun little project and an easy way to spread some holiday cheer, while picking up some knitting skills if you don’t already know how to knit socks.
