The recipient for these is not reading this blog, so it is safe to post pictures. I started these last Friday and they were a very fun and not very complicated knit. I have had this yarn for quite some time now and I just didn't know what to make from it. I painted this sock blank from Knit Picks as an experiment last spring when I was Tie-dying with Conrad's third grade class. Even though the colors I used were very bright (chartreuse, tangerine and golden yellow) the end result was kind of muted and muddled. I didn't much like it! Conrad's teacher however said she really liked those colors so I decided then and there to make her something with this yarn. Not until I saw Petra's pattern for the Stulpen did I know what that something would be. I love this pattern and I see more Stulpens in my future!
