Borlange was inspired by my musician husband's travels through Sweden and Norway. During his time there, he was struck by the prevalence of anchors in Scandinavian culture. The anchor is a strong symbol of hope, stability, and steadfastness, and it was in Borlange, Sweden where he played the Peace & Love Music Festival that he got a tattoo of an anchor to memorialize his travels and to celebrate the stable and anchored feeling that our love gives him when we are apart. I knitted my love into this hat, with an anchor of my own to keep us connected when he is away.
