I know, I know. It’s meant to be spring. But it’s freezing here in Harrogate.
If you’re a sock knitter and use Ravelry then it’s more than likely that you’ll already know Jacqui Goulbourn.
When not running around after her 3 children or working as an accountant with NHS organisations, Jacqui admits to spend far too much on Ravelry (not quite sure how much that would be!)
For the 4th consecutive year Jacqui is co-ordinating the Knit a long in the UK Sock Knitters group. Those people who remember our Lunar colourways in 2013 can thank her for coming up with the underlying KAL themes.
This year’s KAL is Sing-a-rainbow linking a spectrum of colours with songs about the weather for a truly British theme. Jacqui says “As the organiser I had to participate in January’s theme, but was struggling to find a pattern that I wanted to knit, so I came up with my own. Named after the song chosen for our January theme, Let it snow socks are a top down pattern with continuous twisted panels on either side of a repeating snowflake motif. The pattern is in 3 sizes according to foot circumference, but could easily be adjusted further by changing the number of stitches either side of the snowflakes.”
