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.
Hugin and Munin are the two ravens that belong to the Norse god Odin. They fly all over the world, Midgard and Asgard, and return to Odin and tell him what they have seen.
The Hugin & Munin lace shawl is a top-down shawl with large lace feathers, symbolizing the ravens' wings.
The pattern is charted.
