Warm Welcome to TAMK! - Knit wool socks for the winter!

Warm Welcome to TAMK! - Knit wool socks for the winter!

TAMK library has organized for some years now, a wool accessories & socks challenge, which encouraged all avid weavers to weave socks, mittens and scarves for TAMK International students to wear in the winter frosts.

We will continue the challenge also this year in honor of the Finland 100 years! All small warm knitted wool socks, mittens, hats and scarves are welcome! We will again knit the students of TAMK International students for warmth of autumn and winter frost. This year, the goal is to collect at least 100 wool garments to warm shivering toes, heads and fingers during winter.

Take part in a warm challenge which does not give any performance points or marks, but the knitter will receive a warm feeling in her / his heart. 

Bring your woolen surprises to the library service desk by the end of Finland 100 year and leave your name and contact info because the library will give out some pocketbooks for some of the participants!
We will organize in the winter a small photo cavalcade of the results and new owners of the woolen knits in January 2018.  

If you crave inspiration and dimension tables for socks and mittens, you can easily find them eg. Novita site:
