We've had a simply marvellous weekend in the archepelago.
I took Tyra along for some knitting on the jetty.
Life doesn´t get much better than this...
Tyra is a mitten that I made almost two years ago using traditional patterns from the county Hälsingland.
When I first knitted Tyra I also used the traditional colours, red and green.
Then she looked like this:
The original Tyra.
But after making that other pink mitten last week I started thinking that maybe Tyra would look good in pink, too. It would make the pattern appear even more delicate and dainty.
There are probably some people who think that you shouldn´t mess with tradition in this way.
Maybe they are right. Tyra is very pretty in red and green.
I don´t wish to upset anyone. I love traditional patterns.
But I just had to see what Tyra would look like in pink and white.
Tyra reclining gracefully – or should that be grassfully?
And I hope I´m forgiven for being so naughty.
