Socks for my mother

My mother has had a minor operation and just to cheer her up a bit I knitted her a pair of socks. The design is by Heléne Wallin and available as a free pattern for the members of "Sticka", a Swedish association for knitters.

I recommend this pattern. It is easy knitting and the result is a pair of nice socks.

Josef Frank Exhibition at Millesgården

I can't think of a better way to spend a grey, cloudy Saturday in  September than visiting Millesgården to see the Josef Frank Exhibition. Josef Frank was an architect. But I think, that in Sweden, he is most known for his textiles. His patterns are now Swedish classics. 
A day when the rain threatens to soak you if you dare go outside, these textiles are the perfect antidote. Joyful, positive and a bit mad in the nicest possible way.
But leaving Millesgården without looking at the sculptures of Carl Milles is not an option. They all make such a strong impact seen close up.
