Now, let's start with the Fluffy Unicorn Socks for the head teacher of DS's class this year. They're a bit different from what I normally would knit, as the yarn is a lot thicker than usual (Novita 7 veljestä?). But thenagain, they do spend a lot of time outdoors with the kids at our pre-school, so I think they may even be useful even though I prefer thinner socks myself. The pattern comes from Pirjo Iivonen's wonderful book Unelmien silmukat . Haaveista sukiksi. I've knit many of the patterns in this book, and still have some must-knits left.
The final name was developed by DS, who was having sleepy unicorn thoughts at bed-time some weeks ago. When I started to think of it - yes - those were the words I had been looking for to define this teacher - she is a Fluffy Unicorn! Soft, & sweet.
Beads from DD's bead stash. Sometimes it's very practical to have an 8-year-old in the house!
Just in case, and because I had time, I also knit a pair of socks for my DD's school teacher, as we are not yet sure wether she will be around next year or not. If she can stay, I'll just have to put these away until another year.
These "Seitsemän palmikon sukat" by Jorma Saarinen from a Finnish magazine "Rakas Villasukka are knit in Alize Superwash. Not as soft as the Rowan - quite a huge difference - so probably will hold a lot better.
Sporty, looking simple but with a lot of twists. And a bit unpractically white, but they are superwash... I hope she will like them!
