A Talented Young Designer

Best friend, designer, and teacher extraordinaire, Merike Saarniit, has been teaching her 10 year old neighbor to knit. Elizabeth took to knitting quite quickly and decided she wants to design just like her mentor. 

She came up with this idea:





Merike thought that the idea was good enough to enter the "Think Outside the Sox Contest", so she asked us to dye some yarns for the sock. Elizabeth won her age category! Scroll down the page and you will see.



We are so happy to be able to provide yarn for such talented designers. Someday we hope that Elizabeth will design a project just for us. :)

I have a feeling that will not be too far off, as these were Elizabeth's 2nd pair of socks OTN's. When she finished these she went home and made a pair of matching socks for her doll, with no help at all from Merike!

Congratualtions to Elizabeth and all the other contest winners.
