Freja Knitted by Kristina Ringness

Canadian Kristina Ringness decided to knit my Freja pattern last year to my delight. She choose Artyarns Ensemble Light – a luscious silk & cashmere blend – in Turq Blue and called her project Blue Lagoon. I am so pleased to present the stunning result of her modified version in size Small. Here you can her notes: “Fabulous pattern, fabulous yarn. It should be a gorgeous combination! I opted to add some little cap sleeves, lower the neckline a bit, and shorten the back. This was a wonderful pattern to knit; easily memorized and fun to watch grow. I knit this in the round, to avoid the abrupt colour change at side seams in this multi-coloured yarn. The colour in the finished garment photos is true, this is a beautiful colourway! The yarn itself is, of course, heavenly to knit and scrumptious to wear! As predicted, a perfect combination of pattern and yarn!!” Thank you so much, Kristina!

Her Ravelry id reveals her job; Kristinavet. According to her profile page, she is “…a veterinarian by day and obsessive knitter whenever I am not working.” I can vouch for that, she has test knitted a number of my patterns without any deadline issues! Recently she has also started to hand dye her own yarn. And as if that was not enough, the yarn Kristina used for to knit another of my designs is spun from her own alpacas. Yes, you will definitely see her version of Kori too! Maybe we can request a few photos of her alpacas too? I live in hope!
