I first met Ann on Ravelry, she is a Master Knitter from Oslo, Norway. Then I found her again on Twitter. One day I tweeted about a simple pair of slippers that I had knit. She wanted to swap me a pair of my slippers for a pair of her socks. You see the slippers were to boring for her to knit. After seeing her socks, I can see why a simple pair of slippers would be boring to her. So of course I knit the slippers and sent them off to her, for her husband to wear. They are keeping his feet warm now in Norway.
I just LOVE the socks that she sent to me. She knit them while she was at Rhinebeck, in New York for the Sheep and Wool Festival. She designed these socks herself from the top down, she calls them I heart NY. She used 5 colors of Koigu yarn for these socks, and knit them with size 1 needles. Ann is a Master Knitter. I think that she was born with knitting needles in her hands. I wish that I could sit at her feet and learn to knit like she does.
The socks are so very Beautiful, and fit Perfectly!!!!
Thank You again Ann.
