Knitting is my passion. Stitch by stitch, row by row creating something unique, just using a couple of needles and a thread, is nothing
but pure magic.

During my childhood my mother had a yarn store and I started early to design my own patterns. In the seventies I worked as a stylist
at Jakobsdals kamgarnsspinneri and when my children were small, I freelanced as a knitting designer for several Swedish yarn brands
and also directly to magazines. I knitted and sold machine-knitted sweaters in my own design to trendy boutiques in central Gothenburg.

Later this year I will publish a couple of books in various knitting techniques.

Together with my husband I live on a farm with sheep (Värmlandsfår), chickens (Hedemora) and dogs (Swedish vallhund).
