Wilma Lind Jacket in Familien 20/2017

My collaboration with crime author Hanne Kristin Rohde is all over media hence for the first time (and probably last) you will find my name mentioned even in the gossip magazine “Se og Hør“/See and Listen. This week Hanne Kristin has been interviewed by the “Finansavisen“/Financial Paper, “Se og Hør” and “Familien” and you can read about her idea for our collaboration, her  long career in the police, her Wilma Lind protagonist, her part in the television series “Åsted Norge“/Crime Scene Norway, her presentations and life. It is a fascinating as well as inspiring read or what do you think about the headline: Lady in dead by the abcnyheter.no? Hanne Kristin is as formidable as Wilma Lind, and I am not alone in waiting for another new book in the series. Yes, I did meet her – I recognised her from television – and what a blast it was! In the latest issue of Familien you will also find the pattern for the jacket. Hanne Kristin is featured in all the three different colours of the Wilma Lind Jacket, knitted in Sølje Pelsull/Peltwool (red and turquoise) and in Vilje Lamullgarn (natural) both from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. It suits her so well and she is very photogenic.Above is the first part of the interview with Hanne Kristin in Familien with the headline Criminally good handcraft. She does not have the time to knit any more but has knit a lot in her past.

Here she is in the red version, the sample in size Small knitted by Nadia, aka 77stricknadel which I had made, before Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry knitted the turquoise version in size Medium and Anne-Lise Dye knitted the natural version in size Medium for Hanne Kristin.

Here is the beginning of the interview from “Se og Hør”. The Wilma Lind jacket has been test knitted in my Ravelry group, and is available in sizes XS to 2XL with a bust measurement of 84 to 126 cm/33 to 49.5″.
