yesterday i went to a vernissage at hv-skolan where my dear friend erika‘s degree project was on display. she has made a knitting kit consisting of a mitten pattern along with hand dyed yarn from a small spinning mill on the west coast of sweden. their production is small scale and ecological. erika had made the mitten design, of course (and i think she had dyed the yarn herself, too). there were many lovely things to see, everyone is so talented. i wish i had the time and means to take more craft courses. i would love to learn how to weave and do embroidery. anyway, here are some photos from yesterday:
i went home very much inspired by everyone’s creativity. as soon as i got home i started working on the hemingway jumper again. stefan had to try it on and we decided that i should add a few centimetres to the length before starting on the sleeve steeks. i hope i’ll have the energy and inspiration to finish it soon, it has certaintly been a painstaking projects since i’ve had to rip it out so many times. but this time i think it will turn out just fine.
