London

I år fejrede vi jul ved at rejse til London, i stedet for at æde os propmætte og pakke et helt vognlæs gaver ind og så pakke dem ud igen. Andre år jeg har rejst (Paris, Chicago, New York, New Delhi) omkring jule/nytårstid har jeg elsket det, og London var bestemt ingen undtagelse. På det […]

Sommeren regnfuld gik

Trods regnen har vi oplevet en masse denne sommer både hjemme i det midtjyske og på vores store rejse til Himmerland. Og så har planter og svampe kvitteret for regnen i hobetal. Skovsnogen Artspace hvor den fine kunst ikke skal rådne inden døre, men spiller sammen med skoven omkring den.   Det lykkedes min mor […]

Indigo-farvning med fruktose

Det er efterhånden længe siden allerede at jeg strikkede denne lille nålepude, det håndfaste bevis på mine eksperimenter med organisk indigo-farvning… Den er strikket i Fenris 100% uld, 450 m/100 g. Mønsteret er gratis, Peerie Pin Cushion af Ellen Kapusniak. Det var meningen, at man skulle sy den sammen, men jeg klarede det selvfølgelig med […]

Trip to Japan – Kyoto, Part One

It’s been a bit quiet here at the blog over the last few weeks, and that’s because we’ve been in Japan on holiday. There are so many impressions to process, but here I’ll just share the ones that have to do with yarn and dyeing. Natural dyeing seems to be quite popular in Japan! The […]

The Faintest Pink

Once your eye adapts to spotting lichens, there is one in particular that beckons to you from just about everywhere – bright yellow Xanthoria parietina, growing on stones, fences, and branches. It’s even in my holiday snapshots from last year, taken at Dybbøl, where the Germans beat the Danish army back to the stone age […]

Gradient Hat

I’m in hat knitting mode right now! As soon as this hat was finished, I had the next one on the needles. The pattern, a Danish one called “hue 1” (that just means hat 1, the book has more than one hat) really makes my brain go berserk with color scheme after color scheme. I’ve […]
