Wow, I am amazed by all the wonderful people out there who are deraming of a pair of handknitted socks :-) If I was a magican I would knit for your all.
I am not giving away my table cloth though. I bought it in India, at a special art market, and I have used it every day since I came home tree years ago. The colours on the photos are not the best ones, I shot the photos last night, in lamplight. But you get a good idea of the handiwork.
I have looked through my sock and decided I can give away two pairs.
Then my email was busy yesterday. Two of my dear friends and blog readers, both farmer´s wives, one Austrian, one Norwegian, both sock knitters, wrote me that after reading your comments, they wanted to take part in the giveaway.
So suddenly there are four names to pick.
Dagmar lives on a huge dairy farm in a charming little village in Southern Austria.
Among huge, snowcovered mountains. I have spent time there working on my books, hiking, enjoying Dagmar´s schnitzels, and......knitting socks
Dagmar knits beautiful socks.
Granny (as she calls herself when she comments in The House in the Woods), is Norwegian, living on a farm only 90 minutes from Trondheim.
Near the fjord.
When we had visitors from California this summer, Granny invited us all to her farm, and when we arrived, on our way to the cabin, she served us her wonderful, rich, tasty fish soup.
Granny is also a knitter.
Dagmar and Granny don´t know each other. Well, they didn´t know each other until yesterday, when emails started to flow between the three of us. (I have had a secret plan for a long time to take Dagmar to Granny´s farm when Dagmar comes to Norway)
Dagmar and Granny have so much in common.
Not only farming and sock knitting.
and apples, like apfelstrudel and applepie......
But, this was not meant to be a post about Dagmar and Granny.
Back to the socks and the drawing.
Socks from The House in the Woods go to Kristi Jalics and vonnie.......
socks from Dagmar go to yael......
socks from Granny go to Mouse.......
Send me an email with your address. Mouse and yael, I will forward your emails to Granny and Dagmar.
