Holiday Sock Help!
Hey lovely knitty community. I am wondering if I can ask for your help in this busy, busy season? We are 8 pairs away from being able to donate socks to each resident of the Franklin Street Modular Housing, with the hope that we could deliver these before the holidays.
Do you have any under-loved pair of adult-sized socks that you could donate, or perhaps have the time or inclination to quick-knit a thicker pair?
The Franklin Street Modular Housing units opened its doors earlier this year to 39 homeless or marginally housed individuals from within our East Vancouver community. The housing manager heard about the socky welcome that we donated to the Kaslo modular housing unit in the summer and asked if we might be able to do the same for his residents. Apparently socks convey a perfect welcome from the community along with a symbolic offering of warm feet.
I have taken up my needles and worked through a single worsted weight sock in about 4 hours… if anyone would like to join me, we have a basket of donated yarns to choose from! Please help if you can!! Size, shape and colour do not really matter as there are many shapes of feet that will be able to choose from these… there’s a sock for every preference!
