OK OK tights (giveaway).

My sister Emily's bestie Emina makes tights!!!!

How cool is that!!!!

They are adorable tights. Spotty and stripey and colourful and so much fun.

The best part is that they are made in Australia. In the very last Australian hosiery factory. I love that.

And the loveliest Emina sent me some tights. And I am super excited. I think they are the perfect solution to these cold, grey wintry days. And they are really comfortable too. I think they are going to be my new winter uniform. I've been wearing the green geometry tights all morning and they are soft and warm and I feel happy every time I look down and see them.

(Imagine farmer Liam's face when he came in for lunch before and found farmer Bren snapping photos of me standing on top of the dresser modeling my new green tights.)

And guess what??
Emina has sent me some tights for you too. I told you she was ace.
I have four pairs for four of you.
Black, mustard or emerald in the cotton geometry tights and red/orange in the dotty.

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post.
Tell me something. Anything.
I'll draw the winner next Monday.

While you're waiting why don't you check out all Emina's OK OK sites.

OK OK website.
OK OK facebook.
OK OK twitter.
OK OK blog.
OK OK instagram.
And Emily's facebook.

See ya later - stripey tights potata. x

  1. I have never won anything in my life, ever. Probably because I almost never enter. But those mustard coloured tights...or the blue ones come to think of it....

  2. Ahhh, these are adorable! I desperately need a fun splash of colour in my winter wardrobe (in fact I'm seriously considering grabbing myself a pair of the chunky wool over the knee socks).

    Between the bright colours and the picture you paint of your photo shoot you have successfully brightened what has to now been a grey, stressful day - thank you!!

  5. Thanks so much for sharing - I live just near the OK OK shop and had no idea! And am loving all the different coloured and patterned tights around this year, they can really brighten up a dreary chilly day :-)

  6. Ok here goes ... I can't hardly knit, I can't crochet at all, I can't sing or dance, I can't eat seafood and I CAN'T get over how gorgeously funky those tights are!!!! ( especially the geo ones in ANY colour) .. Hope I told you enough ��

  7. I am always looking for tights! These are cool. And I like the packaging. And I like that they are made in the last stocking factory in Australia too.
    Good on you, and Emina for sharing the tights love.
    My thing I will share is; we are having the biggest Olympics lunch tomorrow. And I am making a German Apple Cake!

  9. Very cute tights!

    Hmm, something to tell you ... It's Auden's second orientation day at childcare today, and I cried and cried and cried all the way home. He seemed to have a good time there on Friday but leaving him is still excruciating. Yesterday morning he hugged me and said 'I love you' for the first time, and he said it again today. I've been remembering that all morning to get me through until I see his sweet face again this afternoon.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Lovely. I wish farmer Bren would have snapped that picture of farmer Liam's face for you to share. I'm sure it was priceless.

    ReplyDelete

  18. one or other of my kids has been off school sick for 3 weeks
    I am going mad (or flying to Vanuatu alone)
    I think dotty tights might help :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my word - how could anyone not be happy in red polkadot tights???? I think I may have found my new winter pick me up!
    I found a long pair of green and black stripey witches socks and a pair of red and white stripey socks (think Dr Seuss)this week too so it is all about leg-wear at the moment!

    I hope your farmer Bren knows just how he makes those of us with unsympathetic husbands swoon when he wears homemade beanies or takes photos of you in outlandish crafty/bloggy situations! My hubby's comment when I showed him Bren's beanie "That man is making the rest of us look bad!" LOL

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just read an old post on my blog of a meme that you did in 2010 - called 8 things.
    I think I'm going to resurrect it and get it started again - it's fun to learn about 'old' bloggy friends and meet new bloggers.

  30. I have been wearing lots of tights lately. I don't have any pretty coloured ones like those, though. Mine are all boring black. It would be hard not to smile wearing those tights.

    ReplyDelete

    I would so love some local bright tights! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lovely,lovely tights, it is impossible to feel old in tights I think, and even though my legs tend to look quite like tree trunks in them, I still love wearing tights! i just stay away from mirrors and everything is great! Hope you are staying warm in the bush, it is very chilly down here by the sea! Have a great day, Julie :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh wow, how cute! I only see my sister once or twice a year due to the distance we live apart, however she was here 2 weeks ago and was wearing tights! I loved them and told her I needed to get some too.....

  34. Looking very funky with your gorgeous tights there Kate! With tights like this, perhaps I could be a funky Mama too? I'm feeling more like a sleep deprived Mama at the moment... I do believe Miss Emerson has started teething. Someone say it isn't so.

    :)

  35. Those would look fabulous on my grand daughters legs! I had an unexpected day in daylesford today, watched out for you, to no avail!

  39. I sometimes secretly wish I could run away from my husband and son and live in a garret in Paris... I would never of course, I would miss them awfully... but everyone's got a terrible secret right?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ohhh , Those tights.Thay are gorgeous , i would adore to win. Love Susan xxx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow!! I am not a tight wearer but my friend who owns the wool shop is and she has some of the most funky tights I have ever seen. She lost her Mum last week and these would help brighten some pretty glum days at the moment.

    Your green ones are great. Have a great week. I am babysitting the wool shop on Tuesday and have just cast on your beanie hat, I'll let you know how it goes.

  47. Oh wow! I love tights and I'm really loving these tights too!! These look fabulous and I'll be scooting over to her website to have a look as soon as I've finished typing here! ;) Hmm... what can I tell you... my baby girl got braces today, which is kind of good and bad all at once I guess. But one of the good things is that we've got it done on a barter exchange, isn't that cool? Her orthodontist is getting (a few) specs and she gets her teeth straightened! Everyone's happy :) Makes me think about if we lived in a bartering economy and how that would be. I guess that would mean that everyone would have to make something or have some skill on offer, which is a really cool thought too :) Have a great night, Kate. Kx

  50. I am knitting my daughter (14yo) a beanie with deer antlers from Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/deer-with-little-antlers-hat. For the inner ear, I am using some left over self patterning wool in pink, cream and lilac. Will be very cute by the time I am finished.
    She was looking for tights on the weekend to complete her outfit but didn't find any that were 'just right', so I'll have a look on the OK OK website for her.

  63. Have had a tiring day at the beginning of my third week of my FINAL teaching prac! It was a good day though. I got to run around with the kids and play hockey, watch some short films that another class had made, teach the kids about biographies and the artist Jeffrey Smart... but now I am pooped and I'm at home and have to do the dishes and cook tea and get started on a horrible assignment. Woe is me :)First world problems I know...

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi!

    I love your Instagram pics, and now that I'm on your blog I must linger to discover more! Tights are a girls best friend. Often they give me the confidence to get out the door, just because I have fun coloured legs for the day! So needless to say, I'd love some new tights!

  65. Hello, this is the first time I am invited to a giveaway but these tights are too good so I'm starting ... Thank you for your blog which is a big inspiration for me and my family. I live in France and we enjoy the beautiful day here ... Next Monday I will be on holiday in Britain but I would see the results of the giveaway at the end of the month. See you soon.

  67. Yay to a new uniform!
    I'm very tired of my jeans!!!!
    Excellent tights & thanks for the chance to get some.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I hadn't worn a dress in years and because of all the lovely knits around I couldn't resist, love to pair the knits with colourful tights and get myself out of the winter blues. Thanks to you and your sister!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Some tights would extend my winter wardrobe somewhat. I am post pregnancy and am still limited to only 2 pairs of long pants and one long skirt. With tights I might be able to wear a few of my skirts and dresses.
    Today I have been assembling a cardigan I finished crocheting several weeks ago. Tomorrow I will be able to keep snuggly in this chilly weather wrapped in one of my own creations!

  70. Holy cow they are gorgeous! Loving the shoes also, may I ask what brand they are?
    Ok 1 thing - I have just finished a crochet blanket that has been 2 years and 3 house moves (interstate for the last one) in the making. It is beautiful and I will be sad to see it go, but it is going to a very good home where it will be loved so not all bad.

  75. I used to wear tights all the time to work, but I tend to wear jeans or cords at home with my little boys. If I had these though, I would have to reassess the situation. I love them, even moreso for having been made in Australia. Go team.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Inspired by your last giveaway... Today, I borrowed a book from the library on how to knit, purchased some wool and my first pair of needles and away I go!

  79. I live in Daylesford - We moved here in April - I have seen you walking near the school with pepper and I have been too chicken to call out *hey Kate* and start a conversation with you. Maybe if I win a pair of tights we could meet for a coffee and a chat? Maybe if I don't win we could still meet for a coffee and a chat??

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh my goodness, orange spotty tights would be AWESOME!! I've commented about tights but I'll tell you something too. I made risotto tonight for dinner, the third one I've made ever and it turned out ACE. What an achievement, 'cos I didn't think I'd ever be able to.
    Have a fab evening,

  81. I have a pair of mustard dotty ones and they DO make me smile every time I look down at my legs!! It's so great to support local companies, especially when they make such cheery garb! You have inspired me to actually follow a knitting pattern this winter - I might even try something with sleeves!! But first a set of round needles so I can knit my own Builder Dave a gorgeous beanie!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh those emerald tights are gorgeous! I don't know if this giveaway is open outside of Australia. But either way, I haven't worn tights in ages. It's just too hot where I am (Saudi Arabia). But since we'll be moving to North Africa soon, where the winters can get cold, I think tights will have to make a comeback in my wardrobe!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Do not enter me! BUT I just wanted to say how positively excellent it is that they are made here & in the only hosiery factory...VERY COOL. x

  84. Your lovely blog entertains me, inspires me, and makes me smile!

    I would ruly, truly love to win a pair of tights, 'cause I'm working on a new "me"!!!!!! I'm layering up, and looking out for the perfect pair of boots and groovy OK OK tights would be just the thing to finish the look (oh, and a new "do" at the hairdresser, 'cause I'm tired of just long and straight hair!!) Spring must be just around the corner ... : -)

  93. So I am in the United States, and Fall is around the corner. I have just started working at a ChildCare Center with 16 two year olds and I can't think of anything that will make them smile more, than for me to come walking in on a chilly Fall day with happy legs covered in a pair of these lovelies. Two year old girls have the happiest, most fun clothes, and I would be able to have happy, fun tights if I were lucky enough to win a pair of these!!!!
    Have a very happy week:)

  104. Pippi long stocking stories were some of my favorites when I was younger. Bright patterned tights always make me think of pippi. I only have boys of my own but one day hope to have a granddaughter to share those stories with and to buy groovy tights for.

  105. I was just saying yesterday that I hate that our small town does not have any colourful tights at all. Nothing. All boring black. And my brief trip to the big city last month didn't leave me with enough time to visit all the good shops to find any colourful tights. And I NEED me some colourful tights (I do have some pink ones, and some purple ones from long long ago and I love wearing them). But oh my oh my - those spotty lady beetle tights are too too TOO good. I love them. I want to win them. Oh yes I do.
    Something to tell you - what..... Things. I crocheted a funny little shape today, that was to be a rock cover, but I realise the rock has glorious black crystals in it - collected from the beach. And I couldn't crochet over that. And something else today - we cut and removed lots and lots of horrible lantana, but our path is almost finished and then we can have electricity cabling laid, and then we can finally have power in this little shack of ours. (oh sewing machine....).
    Have a lovely week Miss Kate xx
    ps - I love that your Farmer Boy was taking photos of your tights, while you were standing on the dresser. These partners-to-bloggers are patient with us, aren't they!

  116. I was going to out myself in the last post but didn't want wool, and though I don't often win stuff, I could bet you anything that I'd win just that which I did not want. I've this year discovered that I am not a knitter (I'm a third of the way through a sock, and I don't think I'm going any further). I am, however, a sewer, crafter and dreamer. Been reading you since midway through your caravan journey and stayed for the farm, the Aga-like stove and the dreams of ditching Melbourne city for somewhere near Daylesford...

    These tights look awesome. Though I might just go buy some of my own rather than hoping to win!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love reading your blog, Daylesford is such a long way from West Wales where I live, but I feel as if I know it well!

  133. I was planing on searching for aussie made tights - thanks for saving me the effort :-)

    I've been wearing the same black woolen tights for around three years. The've had holes in them and I simply sew them up roughly on the sewing machine (I'd love to learn how to darn one day). So I REALLY need some new tights. Off to check out her shop. I like the emerald ones ;-)

  134. They are super cool tights. I can just imagine the look on Farmer Liam's face as he walked in and saw the photo shoot. Does it make me weird to think that standing on a dresser to have good photos taken seems quite normal???? Have a lovely day.

  135. I love tights and think the muted tones of these are the perfect punch of pizazz for me. and made in australia - fantastic.

  142. I wear OKOK tights all the time, they are the only ones that don't sag in the crotch! That is vitally important for decorum and general wellbeing.
    Yay for Brunswick tights and locally made textiles!

  143. What fabulous tights - love the black and green geometric ones. Have spent the morning being a kitchen goddess - made anzac biscuits and sweet spicy pumpkin muffins for my cherubs. Hopefully you would post to NZ if I was a lucky winner.

  144. Awesome tights! Love them. Ok, I'm going to tell you something now.... are you ready... it's king of embarrassing... Up until about eight years ago, I thought New Zealand was located where Papua New Guinea is... I didn't understand why it was so cold there when they were closer to the equator than us! Luckily, I am now married to a cartographer....

  145. Off to check out Emina's website. These are seriously cool tights!
    Pics on tables, sideboards, chairs.... my kids don't bat an eyelid anymore. Though others find it a bit odd :) xx

    How cool are they!!!
    So going to check out the website!! Hoping they come in xxl, as my long legs (ha ha) have trouble with anything smaller!! I dislike tights when the crotch ends up down around your knees!! (or is that just me??)

    ReplyDelete
  148. Thankyou for your lovely blog. I love reading about your farmlife! I do crochet, but now more than ever, i want to learn to knit too! I want to be able to teach my daughters when they get bigger! :o)

  149. These tights look great! I've only recently ventured into coloured tights territory (aside from a short foray in the early 90s) and patterned coloured tights must be the next step.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I have only ever worn black tights. It might be time to start wearing those cool colours. Fingers crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Awesome tights! My last pair from last winter got a ladder on the weekend, so I am searching out a few new pairs :) Today I am drinking cinnamon an,d apple tea and knitting for the first time in about a year!! woot woot! Thanks to inspiration from your wool show posts :)

  157. It makes me SO happy to hear about tights made in Australia, in the very last place that makes them. Amazing!!

    We are going to NZ on Monday so I have had tights on the brain. It will be a bit of a family-visiting, street wandering, snowy, snuggly time and I'm excited!

    Thanks to lovely Emina for getting some of these fun gems to you.

  160. I would feel like a ladybird in those spots. I love them. Just read the leek blog. I plant leek each year and let many go to seed. Last year I left them in the ground and spray painted them orange. They looked great and confused many.

  161. I am a glass blower and this week i started my pay the rent job in retail because it is hard to make a full time living. it makes me sad, retail is not particuarly good for the soul. its also the catch 22 of i should be doing my art, but i need to make the clams. but then i read your blog and it makes me wanna be more awesome. does that make sense? probably not but thanks!

  162. I made it my mission to expand my winter wardrobe with outfits that would go with tights! They make winter fun!

  163. Australian made tights - I didn't know there was such a thing! I wear tights to work nearly every day in the colder months. I wonder what they would think of emerald green tights at work?!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I love the idea of wearing such beautiful tights made in Australia. If I don't win a pair, I'll be buying a pair of the gorgeous green ones.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Love tights - living in Melbourne it's a must to wear tights, with clogs whilst clip clopping down little lanes. Love that they are Oz-made - delightful. Bless....

    ReplyDelete
  166. Oooh, Aussie tights - perfect!! And I have just found a pair of perfectly fitting boots so a great way to get the legs out this winter!!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Amazing! I had a birthday last week and was sent a pair of these gorgeous tights in the mail...all the way to Germany! I love promoting great Australian made goods overseas and would love another pair to get me through our cold Hamburg winters! Thank you Kate for sharing these amazing tights with your lovely readers and a big thank you to Emina for putting such a lovely product into the world for us all to enjoy!

  169. Tell you something ... mmmm .... today when my kids where at school / kinder I took (ok stole) lollies and chocolate from their stashes for me to eat tonight when they go to bed. Meanie - maybe, but I figure I am helping them out by making sure they eat healthy, that's right isn't it???
    Please count me in for some of these cool as tights!

  171. oi, and it is SO hard to find good tights that last too. And something not in black in adult sizes...i hope these make it over the ditch to NZ soon, she's totally got a niche in the market filled there...send 'em over! Australian made is next best to NZ made right? Keeping it local as we can hereabouts. ----and i love the image of your man coming home to you on the dresser with camera in hand and green geometric legs! x

  174. Something good,honest and true..................

    Me to student: 'What do you want to be when you grow up Julian?'
    Julian to me: 'Something red!'.

    It makes me smile everytime I think of it.
    I love OK tights and my kids love it when I wear them too. They call them 'your happy legs'

    Happy from the outside in. Can't get better than that!

  175. I can tell you that my baby boy put a hole in my favourite tights with his toenail last week! Also, that these tights are more than ok, love the green ones especially :)

  176. Hi Kate, I love your blog and find myself heading off to the computer regularly for an update. Your blog is so inspiring, the idea of living a life that puts your family front and centre, with some crafty fun thrown is so nice. I don't have a blog though so hope that I am still able to enter the great OK OK giveaway?? Thanks for continuing to inspire, AJ x
    p.s. My 3 yr old and I have become Op Shop Addicts, we have found the most amazing treasures in recent weeks...yesterday a stash of fabrics and a vintage sewing book, sewing is a newly found hobby and I am amazed at how soothing it is to hear the sound of the machine stitching life in to a new creation.

  177. Oh my goodness!!!!!!!! I don't think I have ever seen such awesome tights! (i do live in a lil ol' town in NZ lol) I think I have been missing out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  178. When I saw this post I was so excited. l've been keeping my eyes out for coloured tights but to no avail. I love anything with spots so the spotty ones of course caught my eye. your blog is such an inspiration to me thanks xx Kylie

  179. Hi Kate, I'm a tragic lurker but have come out of lurkdom to comment how great these tights are! Would be wonderful and warm for winter.

  180. How pretty, to brighten up a winter's day, love the green ones...and orange too!

  181. I'll tell ya something.... I love these tights.

    Also, cos I feel I should come up with something else to tell you... I heard this proverb the other day and it made me stop and think:

    Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. ~Chinese Proverb

    Now... I really can't remember where I read it... somewhere "down the rabbit hole", I hope it wasn't on your blog! But I don't think so.....

  182. I haven't worn tights since having kids but now that's done I'm keen to get back into them.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Oooooh, I have just spent the last half an hr on the OKOK site, drooling. Now I know how I will snazz up all my old boring drab winter outfits. I especially love the black and mustard geometric ones. Thanks, Kate, for the intro to this fab Aussie brand!!!

    ReplyDelete
  184. Ugh, I am so over winter at this point. I have been trying to wear brighter colours to pull me out of the doldrums, but realised I don't have any! I seriously need a wardrobe enhancement and these tights would be the perfect start. I love your blog, thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  185. I've just made a glorious winter stew with parsnip and potato mash, and tomorrow I'm planning on a chocolate loaf and some chocolate eclairs. And once I've left this comment, I'm going to find out about making yoghurt and cream cheese.... You said to tell you anything :-)

  189. Love these! Just what I've been looking for!

    I'm not going to wait to see if I win - I'm ordering some NOW!!

  190. I totally need some new tights but everytime I think to buy some I talk myself out of it ("Where are they made?" "will they last?" "do I really need them?"). These tights are awesome and being Aussie made makes me feel much better about buying and wearing them. I'd love to be a winner but I think I'll end up over at their website regardless. Thanks!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
