So little time for knitting these days, but a weekend trip to London with my mother and my daughters made room for a few small projects! London is less than two hours away from Oslo (by plane!) but when you include train/bus to get to and from airports, it is plenty of time for knitting!…Read More

A pre-winter Saturday
The last few mornings here in Oslo has shown temperatures below zero. After a much too busy week it was easy to convince most members of the family to spend the first part of the day walking in the woods.

The Tussilago Hat

Tussilago farfara (commonly know as Hestehov in Norwegian, coltsfoot in English) is one of the first flowers…Read More
