Sandy’s socks – #907

I have a friend who’s an artist.
Mostly ceramics, but she also paints.
Her husband‘s also a ceramicist – completely different field, mind you – and she started trying out the sort of stuff that he does.
Cracks it first time.
“You have NO IDEA how frustrating this is” he told me “It takes me years to do this stuff and she gets her head around it in 5 minutes flat”
Now she’s started knitting socks.
So when we saw Sandy on the market in Nelson on Saturday, we started chatting.
Seems that she gets some of her wool from Germany.
And she’s been knitting since she was 5.
That’ll be 30 years, sort of….

  1. >Love knitted socks and all the colors. We get some of the wool we use from Greece – they have lovely wool all over the world. : )Very nice blog, we enjoyed looking around. Darryl and Ruth

  2. >I think this is quite remarkable since your artist friend gets her wool from Germany. Last Saturday I spoke with a vendor at an Artist market in Santa Fe, NM and he was delighted with the wool that he imports from New Zealand! Some kind of disconnect here. The natural dyed wool I saw was absolutely gorgeous in colours. I wonder why your friend does not use the wool that is available in New Zealand?
