I'm originally from the west coast of Sweden, but have traded the rugged cliffs of Bohuslän for the Canadian wilderness. I'm is located in the rural parts of Ottawa and spend most of my summers knitting by Burridge Lake.
I've always enjoyed improvising with my knitting. I began writing up my designs in 2007, and have published patterns since then - beginning with the Burridge Lake Aran Afghan and followed by the first lace shawl in the Mystic series - Mystic Waters. I love both cables and lace, and they show up in some way in most of my patterns.
I've published 3 books with Cooperative Press; Mystic Shawls (2014), Ancient Egypt in Lace and Color (2012), and Shaping Shawls (2011). I've also self-published 2 e-books; Fairy Tale Lace (2013) and Seven Fingerless Mittens (2011), and my work has been included in a number of other books.
Additionally I always seem to have KALs on the go - and take on new projects and challenges all the time. Knitting is about having fun for me, and I love exploring new techniques, textures and colours.
Hrungnir was one of the giants from Jotunheim. On one visit to Aasgard, Hrungnir drank all the ale from Thor's cups and then while he was drunk
boasted that he was going to drink all the ale from the Aasas. Thor took insult and slayed him in a duel. Hrungnir had a heart of stone, sharp and three-sided, and even his head was of stone. But Thor defeated him with his hammer.
This scarf shows Hrungnir's triangular heart, and is knit using two contrasting skeins of fingering weight yarn. One of the skeins is an "Evolution" which means that the colour changes from one end to the other.
The pattern is charted, and includes detailed instructions on two different methods of double-knitting
