Taking care of business

Can Assist
First up, thanks to everyone who put their hands up for joining in on the Can Assist sock donation project. If you listen to the podcast, Sticks and String, you'd have heard David mention the project, quite in isolation of what we're doing, so it seems there's some movement afoot on this and people are getting in on the act, wanting to help out Cancer patients.

We don't have answers to all the questions asked but plan to find out. So please continue to either choose socks from your collection or knit dedicated socks and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Socks on Holidays
We have only a smattering of entries to the Socks On Holidays contest. Entries close 15 February. If you have a picture of your sock/s reclining on beach, climbing a mountain, bushwalking or taking in a different city, click the link above for contest details and send them in by 15 February!

We are about to advertise another competition too, so stay tuned!

Passionate sock knitting convert, Carol, nominated us for the You Make My Day award. Carol's blog is a wonderful place. Go say hello and check out her near encounter with skinny dipping! Thanks Carol! Love your work!

That'll be all for now. Happy sock knitting!

I'll be glad to contribute a pair of handknit socks to the Can Assist sock donation project. Email me with the address and any other specifications. And I'll just contribute; I don't need to be entered into a contest. I'd knit a pair of socks for my sister-in-law's dad to wear as he went through chemo and, eventually, hospice. The handknit socks were a great comfort to him!
