On the fifth day of the new year I haven't seen my Indi for five days and I have five copies of this awesome beanie knitting pattern to give away.
It looks tricky doesn't it.
The truth is that sometimes I give myself a hard time because I knit patterns but I never design patterns. Is knitting someone else's patterns really creative at all? But then I knit a pattern like this one and I completely understand why I don't.
This pattern takes something potentially tricky and makes it into such an enjoyable knit. This pattern is so much fun to knit that I could barely put it down. This pattern is so interesting and unlike anything I've ever knitted before that it's hard for me to work out how exactly Georgie even came up with it. And this pattern must have been so technical and so full of maths that I'd have no hope of working it out even if I wanted to.
This pattern uses only one colour per round even though it looks a lot more complicated. This pattern looks awesome in Spider-man red and black. This pattern is probably more intermediate than beginner but it is so beautifully explained that it wouldn't take a lot of experience to get it. And this pattern is called Woohlpooer, which my girls thought was the funniest name ever, but Georgie assures me it's pronounced wool-poor. It's the name of a place near the Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia.
I knit my beanie in Tarndie Polwarth 8ply. It is the most gorgeous soft wool I think I have ever knit with.
So without further ado I'd like to announce that my Indi is coming home tomorrow, YAY!!
And let you know that Georgie has very generously given me FIVE copies of her brand new Woolpooer pattern to give to five of you guys. Just tell me something about knitting in the comments, anything you like, and I'll announce the winners on Wednesday.
The details of my Woopooer are here.

You gotta be in it to win it and then knit it!!
Big warm headed love
