I have had a few questions about my patterns – like are they for sale and where can they be found?
Most of them are for sale – but I´m always behind when it comes to writing up the patterns. Like with these mittens – they´ve been finished for a while and I meant to have the pattern ready for Syfestivalen last weekend. No such luck.
Made to match the hat called Liv Ullmössa. Ages ago.
Sometimes I think that I´m lazy when it takes me a long time to finish a pattern. But when I´m in a kinder mood I remind myself that I have a full time job and two kids that need a bit of attention every now and then. Plus I need my beauty sleep – and plenty of it (not that it helps).
But enough of the lame excuses and back to answering the questions.
My patterns are available both in English och på svenska.
You can buy the patterns in English at The Loopy Ewe.
Och på svenska finns mönstren hos Nysta – men de säljs också i garnaffärer över hela Sverige. Och om jag inte vore så lat så skulle jag ha gjort en lista över vilka affärerna är. Men i stället har jag suttit i min sköna fårskinnsfåtölj och stickat...
Og i København kan du finde mine opskrifter på Sommerfuglen! Det er dog kun på svensk.
Since my friend Pinneguri made a Maja hat last week a few nice Norwegians have asked for the Maja hat pattern. Unfortunately there is no Norwegian shop that carries my patterns and it´s probably quite expensive to send for them from Sweden. But what do you want with Swedish patterns anyway – your Norwegian patterns are far superior!
I missed Syfestivalen last week because I was working next door at Antikmässan (the Antiques Fair). But I bought something at Antikmässan that made me very happy – two old leaflets with embroidery patterns.
This is my favourite pornography source of inspiration. I can feel that the mere sight of a page such as this is bad for my blood pressure.
Good thing that the best medicine for high blood pressure must be to start a new knitting.
There – I feel much better now!
This is a new Dragon sweater for nine-year-old Ludvig. As usual I´m using the sleeve as a swatch.
The wool is Karamell from Östergötlands ullspinneri, but Ann at Anntorps Väv has dyed it for me.
I think it´s close to magical that you can just walk into her shop and ask for a dragon coloured yarn and two weeks later she´s got the perfect yarn in dragon colours ready and waiting!
