Khayam and Laplace Patterns Released

The time has come to tell you about the release of the Khayam jacket and the Laplace pants patterns in English (read: the Norwegian ones are coming very soon) on Ravelry, as the test knit is coming to an end. I wanted to release both pattern at the same time as they were made to be worn together as a set. Both are knitted in the gorgeous Australian yarn Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 5 ply with a crepe construction using a 3.75 mm/US 5 needle and a 24 stitches and 34 rows gauge in stockinette stitch measuring 10 cm/4″ square by sample knitter Grete Jenssen, aka ma9 on Ravelry. My test knitters did a brilliant job correcting and improving the pattern! The set was photographed worn by Model Olivia Lindtein – with make-up & hair styling by Nina Hjertaas Bull jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design – at Sentralen in Oslo back in December last year by Wenche Hoel-Knai.

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 The Tweed Scarf is an old design originally made for my Norwegian knitting book “To rett, en vrang.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.
