Inga Loves Fröderick, and a contest
Contest: Why the name? The Bavarian-style stitches made Inga an appropriate name. I thought it needed something more, however, and Inga and Fröderick (or Frederick) are characters from a movie. Here's the contest: the first person to email the name of the movie and the names of the actors who played those characters to knitdesignbycaroline (at) gmail (dot) com wins a free copy of your choice of KnitDesign by Caroline pattern.* See them all here. Rest assured, I won't share your email address with anyone; I only need it to send you a copy of the pattern. If you prefer to receive the patern via Ravelry, please mention that and give me your Ravelry ID.
I enjoyed knitting Inga Loves Fröderick. The pair went so quickly! They're exceptionally cozy, too. The yarn, Cascade 220 Wool, didn't feel exceptionally soft while I was working with it, but after a light handwash and block, it feels very good on the feet. I've been wearing them all day. They may be my first sock design, but they won't be the last. More will be coming soon.
And look at that - 30 years later, ballet lessons are useful in a sock modeling career!
