The yarn shop Nøstet Mitt, see www.nostetmitt.no, has invited me to talk about my newly published book and show all the garments on models on Wednesday 14th March, 18.00 to 21.00, at Lille Persille a gastrocafé, next to the yarn shop, at Lambertseter Shopping Centre in Oslo. I am thrilled to have the opportunity not only to show all the knitted garments this time, as opposed to a selection at my book launch, and tell you my history, inspiration and design process, to a knitting audience. You will have the chance to see and feel all the garments in addition to having your book signed.
Nøstet Mitt takes over the whole mezzanine floor of Lille Persille, which offers a selection of food, sweets and drinks as well as comfortable chairs & sofas. The shop will be open throughout the evening so you have the opportunity to buy books & yarn. From 20.00 to 21.00 Nøstet Mitt offers a 25% discount on everything, yet another reason to be there! In addition there will be a draw for gift voucher with the value of 500 nok valid in all 3 shops. The knit café is free and no booking is necessary since there is plenty of space. I do hope you can come!
My book displayed next to a cone of Alv Kamgarn by Hifa, knitted double in the Spine Sweater inspired by the late Alexander McQueen worn by ballerina Cristiane Sá and photographed by Kim Müller at the Architectural Museum.
The yarn, in beautiful grey shades, is also used in the Tweed Jacket, knitted double with fairisle sleeves and tweed patterned body. I chose to use yarn remnants to make a small matching cowl and the thicker Huldra Kamgarn, in dark rose-red, to knit a larger cowl with wrist warmers. Bring your knitting and join me on Wednesday 14th March at the knit café! Welcome!
