The Star of Earth is a Chippewa tale about a bright star traveling across the sky. She looked down on Earth and watched longingly as the children played. She wished to live on earth, so that she could enjoy its beauty. She first tried to live among the flowers of the prairie, but was afraid to get trampled by the buffalo. She then tried to live among the mountain roses, but the mountain was too steep and the rocks hid her from the children. She then saw a water lily floating on a lake, and decided to make her home there. This way she could watch the stars from the lake, and the people whom she loved, for their canoes were always upon the water. The Star of Earth pattern is a circular shawl, knit from the center out.

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.
