Sock Blitz! (November 15, 2011)

On August 5, 2010, we launched a Sock Blitz, with an end date of November 15, 2010. Our goal is to collect 100 pairs of socks by that date! 100 pairs of socks in 100 days! Wool-Aid has General Guidelines for socks.

Guidelines specific to this campaign:

• Wool (at least 80% wool/animal fiber)
• Worsted weight yarn or heavier (includes worsted or worsted stranded with sock yarn or worsted weight doubled or bulky yarn)
• Sock length at least 6”, up to adult sizes for teens
• Sock height at least 6” above the heel flap, or with a leg measurement equal to foot length, up to a maximum of 10”
• Please tie socks of a pair together.

Suggested pattern:

Cozy Toes by Christiane Burkhard (LISMI)

You may use any pattern that you enjoy knitting, as long as the finished socks meet the guidelines above.

Please send all socks to

1381 Rocky Creek Court
Belleville, IL 62220
