About This Item

Green Stripy Sock TB (with all the other socks!)

Have you ever wondered what happened to the missing socks from your laundry..? Well.. they go traveling!

This travel bug has been released as part of an ArtWash event - 5 pairs of socks have been split up - one half of each pair will stay in the laundrette, and the other half have been made into travelbugs that are going off on a race! They are all racing to Edinburgh and then back home to Oxford again... Which one do you think will make it back first..?!

If would be great to see some photos of how the socks are getting on - photos of Geocachers with this sock, or of the sock in/near to the cache that it is in, or even photos of the sock with your own socks - escpecially if you have odd socks, stripy socks, bright coloured socks, or otherwise fun or unusual socks!! Combine several of those options for bonus points!

The rival socks are:
The pink stripy sock
The orange stripy sock
The blue stripy sock
And the purple stripy sock

We also set up a cache within the laundrette that plays host to ArtWash - it is the ultimate destination of these odd socks; the finish line for their race. It is The home of odd socks!

ArtWash is a monthly artist led event held at the TruWash laundrette in Headington, Oxford, on the 20th of every month (except for August...). Each month an artist has a showcase event for finished work, work in progress, or a site specific piece. For further information see the website -

It's the winner!!!
The Green Stripy Sock was the first one to get from Oxford to Edinburgh and back to its home in Oxford again! I wonder how long it'll take the rest to get back? And which one will come in second..?!

I see it got really close to its end goal only for someone to have taken it West, it must have been a real moment for you?!
I have another TB that needs to be in Brize Norton, so I shall be dropping this one off somewhere along the A40 so that it can get back on track again!
Thanks for (sh)airing your dirty (actually very clean) linen!!
