Knits Based on Candy Wrapper
January 16, 2013 § 2 Comments
Sharing inspirational things sure was much harder before social media. Living away from my childhood culture, I’m not sure I would ever have come across these fantastic knits without the ah-maizing Internetz:
They’re based on this Pihlaja candy wrapper by the Finnish company Fazer:
The marmalade / jelly candy, commonly known as fox candy (kettukarkki), has been made and sold continuously since 1895. Impressive, isn’t it? It was first made with rowanberry – hence the name (pihlaja = rowan) – but apparently the recipe has changed over the years (sorry, Finnish only). The fox candy has remained one of my favorites over the decades. Slurp! 🙂
However hard I try, I just cannot find who took this photo / made these knits. I’d like to be able to give them a shout-out for job well done. Pout. 😦 If anyone has a clue, please let me know!
