The inspiration for Kys (Kisses) comes from architecture. In the area of Copenhagen named Ørestaden, there is a lovely assisted living facility. The windows, which are shaped so they sort of “pop out” of the building drew my eye. I just had to try and knit how that looked to me, and what better canvas than an oversize sweater with holes all over, that “pop out” like little kisses. I’ve chosen to work the sweater in two colors, a neutral base color and a pop color for the holes. If I had chosen to copy the original color scheme, the colors would have been a darker and a lighter shade of green.

Inspirationen til Kys er hentet i arkitekturen. I Ørestaden findes der de fineste plejeboliger ved Asger Jorns Allé. Det særlige ved boligerne er, at vinduerne er formet, så de ”popper” ud af bygningen. Det måtte bare strikkes, og hvad bedre end en rigtig bigsize trøje fyldt med huller, der popper ud som små kys. Jeg har valgt at strikke trøjen i 2 farver, en rolig bund og en syret hul-farve. Skulle jeg være tro mod husene, havde jeg valgt en mørk og en lys grøn.
