Sock the Vote! kit | PREORDER

  • These kits are a preorder and will ship in approximately 4 weeks, and sooner if we can.

    Knit-along and vote-along.

    We marched, we knit pink hats, we knit sweet impeachment hats. But now, we can take the most powerful action of all: at the ballot box.

    "If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing." That’s what President Obama said, and that’s what we’re doing here at Little Skein.

    Please join our Sock the Vote! campaign from now till Election Day to encourage all left-leaning voters to go to the polls on November 6 and all left-leaning knitters to knit with us and soothe our worries.

    If you believe as we do — in kindness, in lending a helping hand, and equality for all — please join us. Be a voter. Knit away your worries. Swing toward hope.

    Preorder a kit & choose exactly the options you want

    The downside of preordering is waiting, but the upside is that you can select exactly what you want in it. We are delighted to make a kit just for you.

    Our beautiful Liberty Knits artwork was created for me by artist Kimothy Joy and I am so happy to emblazon it as a symbol of the passionate face of knitting and political expression.

    For an interesting read on the long history of craft and political activism, I can commend this lovely article.

  • Sizes to match your knitting process, not just your project.
    Each knitter’s process is as unique to them as their final project so we make project bags that suit how you like to knit. There are options for knitters who like to travel light, who need a bigger bag to keep their supplies all together, or who want to add a just little more to their project bag like a book or notions pouch.

    You can pre-order your project bag in any of these sizes:

    Drawstring bags: Lighter weight design for 1-2 skein projects; capacity of approx. 250 cubic inches; 10” tall and 5” wide when flat, with a square bottom.

    Sock 'n book totes: Our most lightweight bag for on-the-go knitting; holds 1 skein plus a small book; capacity for approx. 120 cubic inches.

    Sock zips: Ideal for 1 skein projects; capacity of approx. 62 cubic inches; 10” wide and 7.5” tall, with a rectangular bottom.

    Shawl zips: Ideal for 2-3 skein projects; capacity of 145 cubic inches; 13” wide and 8.5” tall, with a rectangular base.

  • Beauty in difference. Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so there will be some variation in where the fabric print is placed and minor variations in size or shape. We think that’s part of what makes each bag perfect – they’re not identical.

    Care for your Little Skein bag as you would a fine sewn garment. It can be washed if needed, and advice on washing is in my FAQ.

    Do you have allergies? I keep a well-organized and sparkling studio, without scents or stray threads. But the studio is also beagle-friendly. I keep Molly safely away from sewing and packing, but if you are highly allergic to dogs, please be aware that your bag will not be hypoallergenic.

I love blue, and this skein has beautiful blues in it. I'm happy to support the left-leanng cause, even though I'm Canadian! :)


The kit is wonderful! The message is great and the yarn is soft, squishy and beautiful!


I love the whole kit! I can take this to my office (I’m a school nurse) and actually talk to the kids about the democratic process. It’s so timely and creative!

Love this kit!

Love the bag and the stitch markers - can’t wait to knit up some left leaning socks!

Thank you Little Skein. This kit is fantastic!

I am so pleased that Little Skein is offering these kits. First, the kit is gorgeous. The project bag is constructed of sturdy fabric and beautifully put together. The stitch markers are lovely. The yarn is fabulous. The color is just wonderful. The coordinating mini-skein will work very nicely with the speckles. I will very much enjoy working on this project. Also, soothes my heart to be able to support independent makers and promote some consideration and decency as we go to the polls this November. Thank you Little Skein for providing this space for people.
