A big THANK YOU to everyone who left a comment about books on Norwegian knitting!
Now, if any Norwegian who happen to read this would like to adopt a fairly well-behaved 44-year-old mother-of-two please drop me an email. I would love to be able to call your textile traditions my own.
I don´t smoke and my alcohol consumption is very modest.
Last Sunday we made a trip to an tiny island in the Stockholm archepelago and spent the day with my nice in-laws. I enjoyed quite a few hours in the sun with my knitting, while the children sat totally still and quiet.

It has been brought to my attention that it can be difficult/impossible to leave a comment on my blog. If anyone reading this has had this problem, I would like to ask if you could send me an email to this address: johanne.landin at gmail.com (change at for @) and let me know.
That is also the address you Norwegians should use should you wish to adopt me.
