I work as a desiger and designe engineer commuting between Göteborg, Sweden and Oslo, Norway. I enjoy sitting in the corner of my couch knitting. My interest in knitting started quite late.
I grew up with a creafty mother who always sew, knitted and crocheted, I have always fallen asleep to the sound of sewing mechines and knitting needles. Jag växte upp med en handarbetande mamma som alltid sydde, stickade och virkade. My mother tought me early but I neveer got hooked.
In my twenties I started crocheting a little. I produced a couple of doilies and pot holders to bring to my future home. They stayed.
I have always felt the urge to create something with my hands. For I while I painted pots to sell and after that I got hooked on building doll houses and furniture in scale 1:12. I have always knewn that I need to work woth something creative. I started off studying art, via chef school through B.sc in Mechanical Engineering.
In the year 2010 I didn't feel like my creativety was challenged in my daily work and one day I paid my LYS a visit. I wanted to knit a kid-sized sweater. I came home with pattern, straight needles and acrylic yarn. None the less have I continued ever since.
I wrote my first pattern Vargavinter in Fall 2010.
