My Book Out in Finland

My book title “To rette en vrang. Designstrikk” literally translates to “Two knit one purl. Design knit” but the Finnish title – which I cannot pronounce – translates to “Time to Knit! Modern and classic knitting models in the style of couturiers/top designers”. I am very pleased with the title, and like the stylish front cover publishers WSOY have made. If you read Finnish, here is the description of it: On the cover is a stunning photo, taken by photographer Kim Müller of model Kari-Anne Næssø, wearing the Daisy Shrug & Cowl knitted in a beautiful shade of light jeans blue Thin Alpaca by the Norwegian company Du Store Alpakka using a 3 mm/US 2.5. I do think they loved the Finnish flag color combination of white text and a blue garment!

The Finnish language is very unlike the other Scandinavian languages, and belongs to a different language group all together: Uralic which also include Estonian and other minority languages spoken around the Baltic Sea. So I must admit there are very few Finnish words I know, but I will speedily learn more now from simply reading my own book! It will be exciting to follow how many Finnish knitters, I can attract. I would not mind a trip to design conscious Helsinki!

  1. Congratulations, Linda! Let me know if you are going to Helsinki. Maybe you could visit Tallinn as well, it is very close. And I am sure you will find interested knitters/designers in Finland.

  2. Congratulations! Beautiful.
    I specially like the fact that it doesn’t need to show a young girl in the cover.
    PS-I’m still waiting for it to be published in english. 😉

  3. Congratulation Linda! I was so very pleased for you and excited to see you new book. Best of luck on sales, & I can hardly wait for it to be published in English so I can take a peek at your design knowledge.

  4. Congratulations! What a beautiful cover.

    On the Finnish language: well, it isn’t a Scandinavian language. Scandinavia consists of the three countries Norway, Sweden and Denmark. It is, however, a Nordic country – along with Iceland :o)
