As Winterdays go by ...

Dear Blog Friends... We are now finally having some real winter in Sweden . Snow and degrees below zero almost every day... For me it is the time of the year when I try not to think about the New Spring Collection ahead , I to try to make all of those things that you have longed for during the intense work of the season but not have had the time to do... Do I succeed ? Of course not !!! My work and Creativity is always with me and that is why I call it a work of 365 days a year... But it is a more relaxed time for me as I spend much more time at my studio at home and only open my shop twice a week...
This time of the year and always my knitting is with me everywhere I go , it is also my great passion , I have been knitting since I was 9 years old ( taught by my Dear grandmother Maria )... And when I start a project it is impossible to stop... Usually I have 3 or 4 knitting projects at the same time...Right now the one that takes the most time of my hours a day is the one that I am creating for Valentines Day... As I wrote before it is important for me to always create something special for all the special dates of the year....I don't know why, but I love it...Keeps my fingers working 24/7 Here a picture of one of those special occasion knits... created for New years eve 2017...
Mohair and silk satin details in lovely shades of offwhite...
As My Dear little shop is Only open 2 days a week , on fridays and saturdays I get to spend a lot of time with family and friends and at home I am surrounded by fireplaces , the nature, yarns , fabrics , oilpaintings , ceramics and my plants ...My home is my sanctuary , how cheesy it may sound... I often whisper to my self , Dear wonderful life... Dear wonderful life... Yes I am thankful for being able to work with my passion and blessed with all my wonderful clients that follow my work unconditionally year after year... January ... I think this is a very good month to reflect on the things that really matter in life and try not to put so much difficulties in it ... We all have a long year ahead and so let us try and do what makes our hearts happy... Work we must all do but if we try to every day find something new to learn about , something that surprises us ,make something creative such as painting , writing etc ... I know that this gives us a happier life , don´t you think ? Happy January and Year to all ..<3
