Win sock yarn for life!

Win Socks for Life! Well, the yarn, you’re on your own after that.


(Vancouver, BC) “To be fair, it’s actually only a 25 year supply, so we can only hope the winner dies early to keep me an honest woman.” – Nikki Smith, VP

After extensive research discovered two key issues which continue to plague the world which we’d like to help bring to an end.

  1. Some people have hobbies other than knitting (idiots)
  2. Other (marginally insane) people buy socks at Costco

“With one final blow we’ll give someone years of knitting and make it so they never need to succumb to Fruit of the Loom again.” – Robert Matherson,

Don’t want to use all the yarn to make socks? That’s okay, no hard feelings.

Yes, some marriages may end as the winner ignores her husband in a multi-year knitting frenzy. But that’s simply a risk we must take. On the other hand, maybe getting non-terrible socks for Christmas could bring families closer together.

The prize will go to whomever can show how their life will most be changed by winning and what you will do with the prize.

Anything could happen:

“I’ll use the yarn to start a knitting business on Etsy!” – Beth C, Winnipegsockforlife-side

“My friends always get together to watch The Bachelor, but goodness it’s boring, now I’ll have something to do to keep me distracted.” – Janet G, Toronto

“Honestly I have no self control. With all that yarn I’ll knit non-stop, stay up for days and miss work. I’ll get fired, not be able to pay rent and get kicked out of my apartment. But… I’d have so many socks!” – Samantha T, Vancouver

“I’ll knit them all up as fast as I can and give them to charity.” – Nicole

Whatever the reason, let us know why knitting is important to you and how a lifetime supply of sock yarn would change your life.

    My stash, as it is right now, is likely enough on its own to supply me for life. So I will not be competing with you for this!

  2. Oh dear. I may just enter

    This looks great, but I don’t knit socks. I knit shawls. I know the yarn can make a great shawl, but my stash is at SABLE (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy) already. Good Luck!

    Good luck to *you*, though!
