Marathon Sock KAL 2021: The round-up

The Marathon Sock KAL is over for another year, thank you so much to everyone who took part, especially to you if you knitted socks for it. This year the event completely surpassed all expectations, and over the course of 2 months, 59172 m of sock yarn was turned into 221 pairs of socks! That’s 268 m per pair of socks, and a lot of cosy feet! Special thanks go to all of you that knitted more than one pair of socks – Martina managed to add a whopping 16 pairs to the total!

Here’s the bit you’ve been waiting for: the winners! There were five prize packages this year (you can read all about them in detail here), and the first prize drawn went to Aafke van Dijken-Zuidema, who won the ‘The Second Drawer Down’ package. Toni Sweeney won the West Yorkshire Spinners package; the Rainbow Fusions package went to Jan Johnson. The first Head Over Heels package went to Rebecca Anderson, and the final package went to Nicole Simmons. I’ll be in touch with all the winners very soon.

Extra special thanks go to this year’s prize donators: The Yarn Dispensary, Jen’s Crafty Charms, Yarnesty;* and to ErisApple for creating the Marathon Sock KAL 2021 patches.
