And to the many knitters who contributed their time and skills in creating our display of 100 pairs of socks.

We thank everyone who came forward and shared their family’s stories, photographs, and precious treasures with us. The nature of this exhibition means we will be rotating in new content as time goes on, and this list will change to reflect those new additions.
