It is time for our fifth annual mini-sock Advent calendar. There’s one sock for each day of Advent (1 – 24 December), and each sock is stuffed with a delicious Lindor chocolate. The ‘sock of the day’ goes to the first customer of each day, or at least the first customer who remembers to ask, because the store does get busy in December, and sometimes it’s hard for Nina to remember what day it is!
Nina also has a bag of additional mini-socks to give away to customers in December. Last year we saw some pretty fierce competition for mini-socks, so there are even more available this year – 75 of them, in addition to those on the Calendar. However, December is the busiest month of the year, and the mini-socks will still run out early. So, do your Christmas yarn shopping early for the best chance!
The mini-socks are made by knitting instructor and Creative Yarns regular Mairi McKissock, from bits of leftover sock yarn donated to the cause this year by: Betty, Jane, Cathy, Trish, Jean, Phoebe, Corinne, Kathy, and Monika. Thank you, everyone, for joining in the fun of our December mini-sock tradition!
