Tulips in the Desert - my new sock pattern. Uus sokimuster - Tulbid kõrbes.

How does one grow tulips in the desert? “With lots of love and care,” she answered.  
The same applies to you, dear knitter! When you love the look of the socks you can make your own with lots of love and care. 



It's hard to capture all these lovely bright colours when the weather is so dull in winter. They brightened up my long days of working on the pattern and knitting the socks. I got this gorgeous yellow speckled yarn at Yarningham last summer. I petted the skein and thought what it would like to become. Tiny red dots reminded me of a trip to the edge of Karakum desert a long time ago. It was springtime and tiny red tulips were blooming. I couldn't get the image out of my head, started drawing up tulip charts and knitting swatches. As you can see the initial idea was quite a bit different from the final. 




  
Lovely yellow sock yarn is dyed by The Yarn Lab Uk, color Dancing Giraffes. Lana will dye more of this wonderful sunny yarn and kits will be available in her Etsy store. Or just contact her to place an order.
I can vision the socks made in other colors too. Maybe have a light blue or lilac as the main color? What colors you would like to use? 
The pattern is available in my Ravelry store and there is an introductory discount 20% off (no coupon code required) until midnight, Monday, January 14 (UK time zone). 

I would very much love to see your socks!


Uus sokimuster - Tulbid kõrbes. Millest selline idee? Eks see ole lõngast inspireeritud! Ostsin selle kollase träpsulise lõnga möödunud suvel ja aina imetlesin neid säravaid, rõõmsaid värve. Minu pildistamise oskus ei anna kahjuks edasi seda sära. Kui mõtlesin, mis sellest lõngast teha, tuli meelde ammune reis Karakumi kõrbe servale. Oli aprillikuu ja pisikesed punased tulbid õitsesid. Nii ma hakkasin joonistama skeeme ja kuduma proovilappe. Esialgne idee oli üsna erinev lõpptulemusest.


Kollase lõnga nimi on Tantsivad Kaelkirjakud, ja selle on värvinud The Yarn Lab Uk . Poeomanik Lana lubas panna kokku mõned komplektid sokikudumiseks. Tasub kiigata tema Etsy poodi järgmisel nädalal, kui soovid sama lõnga kasutada.
Muster on saadaval my Ravelry poes ja kuni esmaspäeva hilisõhtuni on see 20% odavam.
Nii väga tahaks näha Sinu tulbisokke!

Jah, see lõng on väga ilus ja soe ning … küll oleks kena sellist sooja lõnga kududa.
Mis aga sokkidesse kootud kõrbetulpidesse puutub, siis need on veel palju ilusamad, kui tantsivad kaelkirjakud!
