I've been asked by the people at yarncanada.ca to share the news of a contest they are running. I don't know much about this company so I did a quick search on Ravelry. There aren't very many comments but so far all of them are good.
They're giving away enough yarn to knit a pair of socks every season for the next 25 years (about 100 pairs!). The prize will go to whomever can show how their life will most be changed by winning and what you will do with the prize. If you don’t want to use all the yarn to make socks? That’s okay, no hard feelings.
