I think most Norwegians really have longed for spring this year – it has been a looooong winter, and we have had more snow than we usually have. But finally, the temperature is steadily above zero and the last weeks have actually had pretty warm&sunny days causing the first spring flower to blossom! So here…Read More

I really like the effect of a latvian twist as a trimming – especially on childrens garments. My newest design was in a circus theme edition of “Bladet garn” and I used it for all edges on a sweater (you can get it as an ebook in english in Ravelry!). It is much simpler…Read More
My first published pattern – a sneak peak!
Sorry for being absent for more than a year! The reason is not only a busy life…but a major reason is that I decided to write down more of my designs to see if anyone was interested in publishing it. And then it is important not to show of anything in advance! And now the…Read More
I have actually never fancied gradient yarn where the shifting colours are too different. Partly I think it is annoying to knit when I do not know what “patterns” the colour changes make, and partly as I think it is too noisy. But when I earlier this summer convinced my twin daughters to walk for 30 minutes…Read More
Summerhat – on demand…
One of my girls was in want of a summer hat, and it is always good to have a stash project. A summer hat in cotton yarn is always fun; it is easy to improvise and adjust size and patterns as you go. The green yarn is PT Petunia from Rauma yarn, the white one…Read More
Still finishing up old projects… The Dot-a-Dot jacket was planned to be like the Jente Jakke, but as I realised I probably would run out of yarn (bought on sale; a beautiful blend of mohair and alpaca from Sandnes) I had to supply with some yarn I got in Paris (Sweetgeorgia Superwash Chunky). And the daughter who…Read More
Crossing the mountains
Almost every year we go for vacation visiting my husbands family in a fjord at the western coast of Norway (Vestlandet), spending lazy days fishing in the fjord, eating all kinds of fish dishes and enjoying the company of relatives we see too seldomly. And it gives a lot of room for knitting! First as…Read More
The Everyday Jacket
This is a must-have-jacket my pre-teen daughter has begged me to make… She wants sweaters and jackets that are soft, airy and preferably without any buttons or zippers. So when I made the (smaller) Jente Jakke for one of her sisters some weeks back, she convinced me that now it was her turn … The yarn is…Read More
The last day of April was sunny but a bit cold; perfect for the “premier” of the jacket I finished last night! It is in a warm but light yarn (cashmere and alpaca blend), deep blue and with semi-long sleeves. I have used garter stitch for the lower part, but the upper part is in…Read More
I actually started on my first April project in March… It was too tempting when I brought home the very nice Alpaca/Cashmere yarn that one of the girl chose herself. The picture of the baby jacket is from a magazine from the 50’s (“Alt for Damene, Babystrikk). As my girls are too big for such a…Read More
