On Handarbetets vänner in Stockholm we are learning more about some knitting tradtions in Sweden.The first weekend we have had Skåne .We used needles 1,25mm and white lamb wool yarn.The patterns we are using are from a special sort of "cardigan".
Here you find pictures of many different ones.Enjoy.
Next meeting is October 15 and 16 and I hope I can decide if it's going to be mittens or wristwarmers.I have also some more homework I can do.It would be nice knit and decorate something inspired by the traditons from the "spedetröja"
We have 5 weekends more .Next time it's going to be Gotland and Binge

The socks are made in a yarn I have got from my swap friend,a yarn from Deborah Norville collection totally new for me.It's 50% wool,25%Bamboo and 25%Nylon but very easy to knit with.It's going to be very interesting to have them,I think they are not anything for the winter.
I wish you all a nice time

Here I show 2 wristwarmers imspired by the Lovikka mitten.These are made of our teachers in the course.So dear friends in a month or two I show you my versions of theese.
The second course I had was Estonian knitting and the picture shows the goal we had to do but no this is made by our teacher.For me this is something I'm going to go on with and do my own vesion of much later.You can also see some of the other mittens she had.Our teacher was Kristi Jöeste,one of the author to Estonian Knitting 1 Traditions and Techniques

Now I'm retired and as a help on the way into a new life I'v got a lot a flowers and many kind words.During the Midsummer we also have had a lot of wild flowers.My sister had picked so many lovely flowers.So fresh and so full of colours.
The last picture shows wonderful gifts on my birthday in May from M.Than you so so much. Hopefully I'm also going to do more quilted things when I'm not working any more.I have collected fabrics with flowers on .The Scissor "bag" with a flower on makes me so happy.And the small doily in soft colours.Yes flowers are going to be a theme for some of my handmade crafts.
I wish you all a nice new week.

Wish you a nice weekend.
