My "vår"/Spring sweater is finally done. Knitted with the finest silk/alpakka yarn from Sandnes Garn - Leila Hafzi - Model 8. I wear it all the time - and today I have started on a new knitting adventure...

Flower // Design // Twist


Last Friday I noticed the openening of BLOMST//DESIGN on Frederiks Allé 140. Today I stopped by for a visit, where I had a chat with the owner Marianne Nielsen. She had a shop in Risskov before - and after seven years there - she needed a twist. Her main idea is to sell alternative plants mixed with innovative design. I really like the way she uses the big windows and how tree shelves are covering a whole wall. Definitely a place I will visit again, when I need to find new plants, a pot or a present. Tjeck it out here.

Spring Forever Spring


Spring arrival is enjoyed with fruit, vegetables and flower purchases on the market at Ingerslev Boulevard. Near the end of the market a new coffee shop has opened - Go' Kaffe - perfekt place to bring my next visitor! At home I have finally finished my Mellow Sweater. Unfortunately the angora yarn is very fluffy, but hopefully it will be more co-operative after some washes... Now I'm working on a new sweater - more to come.

To The Top...


... and down again on my little visit to MOMU - Moesgaard Museum - on a Tuesday. I had decided to walk most of the way from Frederiksbjerg to the new archaeological museum outside Aarhus. On my arrival I enjoyed a salmon salad and a view to the ocean. With renewed energy I went out on my exhibition journey. Both the archaeological exhibitions about the past and the exhibition about The Lives of the Dead caught my attention, and I felt like getting drawn into other worlds, scenarious and periods of life and death. None of my pictures caught the atmosphere, so you have to go there yourself. When I came home i had to knit on my Mellow Sweater to process my MOMU adventure...

Sore Throat / Glasses Arrival / Homeland



During the past week I have been indoors with a sore throat. The only thing who has worked is drinking tea with lemon, ginger and honney while watching Homeland on Netflix. Yesterday my Ace & Tate glasses - Nina - arrived from Berlin.... I like the nice designs, affordable prices and that they help people who need glasses in the developing world. I hope Ace & Tate can be bought in Denmark soon!

The Round Scarf



My last knitting project has been a round scarf - I got the idea in December and decided that it should be a birthday present. Really simpel project - perfect while watching TV or just chilling: I casted on 120 stitches, and then I worked a pattern with 4 rows with knit4, purl4 and then 4 rows with purl4, knit4... the yarn was knittet on a size 8 circular needle. Good luck!
