The Marathon Sock KAL 2020… is complete!

The Marathon Sock KAL 2020…

…is complete!


Since May 1st 2020, we have turned 42,424 m of yarn into socks! Thank you to everyone who took part and made it such a fun knitalong.

If you still have socks on the needles, I have opened a warm-down thread* for you to post your post-KAL finished socks in. The rules are fairly relaxed: so long as you cast on your socks before 17:00 BST, Saturday 3rd October 2020, you can enter them (yes, you can enter socks you cast on ages ago!). The warm-down thread will stay open until 11.59pm GMT, October 31st 2020, when I will draw one winner. You can have one entry per 100 m of yarn you convert into socks.

I’ll also draw the winners from Instagram (use the hashtag #marathonsockkal2020) and the chatter thread on Ravelry* at the end of October, so keep on chatting!

I’ve really enjoyed this year’s Marathon, and am delighted that we finished it over the weekend of this year’s Virtual London Marathon – it was the London Marathon a few years ago that inspired my Marathon Sock KAL. It’s been lovely to see so many old faces, and to have been joined by some new faces.

Does anyone fancy doing it all again next year?!
