U. has made these wonderful socks from another hand-colored skein we won at the lottery.
This is so beautiful!
This is one of the skeins Strickpate won at the lottery we recently talked about.
Personally i am not veryfamiliar with wools, Knity told me that this wool is called „Araucantia Yarn„.
A very special and very precious yarn for the kids!
There was a lottery.
They were giving away hand colored wool.
It happened in one of those groups at ravely for social projects.
You know that we are running a Strickpate group at ravelery too.
Amazingly 5 members of that group run over to the very group getting tickets for the lottery.
They had raffles 4 skeins … and … yes yes … 3 skeins have been won by Strickpate.
That is truely amazing!
Thanks to everybody
Amazing but true.
There is even a sock, which is called „Strickpate“.
In 2010 when Knity started kitting socks for children, she used to do a lot of so called „worms“.
Worms are socks without heel.
When knitting this sock with this very special wool, Knity decided not to knit the whole sock in spirals.
Reason was the wonderful pattern of the wool.
That’s why she just knitted the heel in spirals.
Actually I have not the faintest idea what I am talking about, but I guess knitters will know!
It is history that the knitting community of ravelry begged for a knitting pattern of the „Strickpate“-Sock.
In the beginning Knity sended it via email, but meanwhile you can download it as a free ravelry download 🙂
Isn’t that fantastic?
