Photoshoot at Sentralen: Tweed Scarf

The time has come to share the last set of photos taken by Wenche Hoel-Knai at Sentralen during our shoot back in December last year. The Tweed Scarf is an old design originally made for my Norwegian knitting book “To rett, en vrang. Designstrikk” published in 2012 by Cappelen Damm. I wanted some new photos as the backside was not photographed the first time around. This time I styled the Tweed Scarf with black pencil pants and a chalk white coat. I loved seeing the scarf on model Olivia Lindtein, with Make-up & Hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design. In the first two photos you see it with the tuck side out, while the remaining ones have the cable side out. Continue reading

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Cable Round Sweater

I selected another two old design to photograph again on our last photoshoot in December at Sentralen in Oslo. The first of these is the Cable Round Sweater knitted in Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Tinde pelt wool that was first released in August 2014. I have limited use of the photos as the model was from an agency, hence the need for new photos. Brilliant photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai captured model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, wearing the Cable Round Sweater with and without the cowl.

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Khayam

 The time has come to show you how stunning Khayam – worn together with Laplace -looked on Model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, photographed by Wenche Hoel-Knai at Sentralen back in December. Named after the mathematician Omar Khayyam who worked on problems of Algebra is this long slightly oversized jacket with a cable collar and long cuffs. The remaining parts are knitted in stockinette stitch to make the cable stand out. A double belt in stockinette stitch highlights the beginning of the collar. Khayam is worked in pieces for the ultimate fit and made to be worn with the Laplace trousers as a set. Both are knitted in the Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply with a crepe construction.

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Embrae

Embrae is an old design from 2017 that I decided to photograph for the second time around, due to the limited use I have of the first set, as the model was from an agency. Embrae is a fitted lace cardigan knitted in the hand dyed Anzula Squishy in the gorgeous shade of Iris. Here you see how stunning it looked on model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, captured by photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai at Sentralen in Oslo last December.

Photoshoot at Sentralen: Jari

The next set of photos from the photoshoot is the Jari design made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk. Photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai suggested we start with Model Olivia Lindtein, with make-up & hair styling by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, sitting on the back of the sofa in the marble Hallway at Sentralen in Oslo. I like the cool look even though it does not show a lot of the sweater. So I suggested we move the sofa out of the photo. After I had checked whether it would work with the back of it showing, but the back of the sofa had a much plainer fabric hence it would not work. Continue reading
