Third Anniversary Giveaway: Hand Knit Baby Socks!


Today I introduce my first mentor, the woman who led me down the path of all things crafty and handmade: my mother, Donna Keon!
My mother took up sock knitting after I pressured her into attending a magic-loop, toe-up workshop. She has knitted close to 100 pairs since then, and isn't showing signs of stopping. Her stash of sock yarn makes me drool, and my children have the warmest feet in Canada. 

Today, she generously offers one lucky winner a pair of hand-knit, one-of-a-kind baby socks! Even if you don't have your own baby at home, do enter...they make beautiful gifts!

To enter, simply leave a comment in the comments section below!

The winner is Peggy! Please send me an email at keonrose(at)hotmail(dot)com so I can get your address and arrange details!

  1. Okay, despite the fact that my baby days and years are pretty much done I feel compelled to win these little socks. There isn't much sweeter than baby feet in little baby socks. And I do hope to be a grandma myself one day.

  13. Don't put my name in the draw as the knitter is my Mom, too, and I can get socks with that connection :). Just wanted to say I would like those little legs that are in those socks in the pictures. Just for some smooching. For a day or two. I'd give them back!

  17. Was the potential for embarrassing childhood memories too great for you Mom to get an interview released? ;-) I love the socks she knit Evie! She truly is a talented and all-around wonderful woman!

  19. I've been meaning to stop by all week to say congrats on your 3rd blog-iversary. Now I'm here... so, congrats! Also, I was going to leave a comment stating that there was no need to enter me in your give-away... but I just thought of a cousin who is expecting and also a dear friend who is expecting. Ha! perfect gift (if I win they can each have one sock?) I think I already follow your blog? If not, I'll follow!
