Hey there, it’s been a while since my last post – time always seems to fly by, especially towards the end of the year!
I’ve spent the last weeks knitting like crazy, working on many new and exciting projects, and I’m looking forward to bring these to you within the next weeks and months.
But for today, I have something different for you.
We all love to try out new yarns from time to time, don’t we? I’d like to show you Dandelion Yarns, a new-to-me dyer I came across, and some of her yarns that found their way into my stash. Anna Strandberg, who runs the dye studio, was so kind to answer a couple of questions to me.
Hi Anna – thanks so much for taking the time to chat with me today! For getting to know you a little better, tell us a bit about yourself! Who are you, and how do you spend your days?My name is Anna, I am a mother of two boys, and I work as an Art Director when I am not dyeing yarns. Haven´t had the guts to take the big plunge yet, mainly because it is inspiring to work as an Art Director too.
There is a lot of knitting going on here too. Many different directions. Some (like me) knits mostly from Ravelry, from both international designers and domestic. Others are highly inspired by our own old knitting traditions. I did do a bohus sweater in the beginning of the year though, which is a sort of old tradition, started in the 30th.
