this year’s stickstämma (i have yet to figure out a proper translation; knit-meeting?, knitting assembly?) took place at leksands folkhögskola on the outskirts of leksand in the beautiful swedish province of dalarna. satoko and i left stockholm before noon on wednesday last week and after a few hours drive and a brief stop for lunch our first destination was sätergläntan. We browsed the shop, bought some yarn (pictures to come) and relaxed for a bit in their outdoor café with some homemade cookies.
We peeked in at Insjöns linneväveri (weaving mill) but decided quickly that it wasn’t our cup of tea and continued instead to wålstedts woolen mill in dala-floda. we were almost late due to a slight misinterpretation of the somewhat incomplete map from eniro, but we gave them a ring from the car to make sure they were still open. we didn’t get a chance to see the actual mill, but we visited the shop and emerged several hundreds of crowns poorer than when we entered… not surprisingly!
after our yarn adventures it was time to head off to leksand!
