mad about yarn

no it’s not just me, lots of creative people gathered at nordiska museet (the nordic museum) yesterday for a whole day dedicated to yarn, mad about yarn. there were knitting, i-cording, spinning, embroidery and bobbin lacing. the museum’s new textile curator, anna-karin jobs arnberg,  gave a tour of the textile gallery.

ulrica from hjälpstickan was there

i was very impressed by all the knitted goodies people had donated to hjälpstickan, who organizes volunteer knitters who want to donate knitted tings to homeless people all over sweden. ulrica is the brains and the organizer behind the whole thing and also my class mate at hv-skolan!

nordiska museet also has a really nice café where i relaxed with my knitting and good company; marika and carin.
