This week the knitting booklet "Lett å strikke med Vamsegarn" is in yarn shops all over Norway.
It has been a super-fun collaboration with Rauma Ullvarefabrikk, photographer Siren Lauvdal and model Maren Emilie Haagenrud Buskoven.
The idea was to capture the universe of Lôkal combined with the traditional nowegian wool Vams/Pt3.
I´m very proud of the result, and greatfull to Rauma for initiating the project.
Happy knitting, folks!
I´m so fortunate that I get to make costumes for choreographer Hege Haagenruds show "The rest is silence":
This is just to let you know
now that I am no longer around
that you were the most important person in my life.
You gave me so much joy
I am so sorry if I failed you when you needed help the most.
The Rest Is Silence
Kate Pendry received this goodbye letter from her mother after her death a few years ago. Hamlets last words to Horatio – The Rest Is Silence – ended a painful relationship between the mother and daughter.

My husbands grandfather was a fisherman and a whale gunner back in the old days. His name was Nils. I never met him, but I bet he would have loved a sweater like this. Perfect for a day at the sea fishing or just drinking damn good coffee at Supreme Roastworks.
I love the fall! The crisp, clear air. The colors. And you finally get to wear all the fabulous knitwear you´ve been knitting.
AND you can sit inside and binge watch tv-shows and knit!
Remember, if you buy a pattern from Lôkal, you get a 15% discount if you buy the yarn at Oslo Sy- og Service senter
The free download is over!
My old neighbours son was obsessed with raccoons and he told me that "they are the coolest animal in the world!".
So be a cool raccoon and knit this seasons stripy sweater from Lôkal!
My oldest daughter has wanted a long jacket for some time now.
This summer she realised that she is not a tiny child anymore, she is 155 cm high and can easily use her mothers knitwear.
But, since her mother also wants to use her own knitwear, a new jacket had to be made. This is The Riley Jacket.
This little rascal is wearing the latest addition to the kool kids kollektion.
It´s merino wool, doesn´t itch and comes in a wide range of nice colors.
The Lilacs are blossoming outside my window, giving me inspiration to wear this summers nicest color. Listening to Nina Simone sing "Lilac Vine" completes the soothing summerfeeling.
This reminds me of the English children´s book Where´s Wally!
Wally wears a red and white striped sweater and hat, and is hidden in a picture with dozens of other characters, the challenge is to find him. I have a feeling you´ll be easy to spot in this outfit!
I´m mad about stripes!
And these are the perfect stripes for the summer 2015!
Super soft, super cool and super easy to knit!
Yarn: Sandnes Garn
Knit your own shorts this summer!
This is super easy and most likely to be knitted in one evening. Go for it!
Guess we all knew that, but did we know that a knitted skirt could look so nice? And that you knit it in one evening?
This sweater reminds me of the 80´s, Phoebe Cates and Peach Canei!
It was fun to style the model with my first pair of Acne Jeans, that I bought for my hard earned money working in a stationary shop in Oslo. They were supercool then and still are! This summers favourite outfit, I think!!
Knitting with this yarn for the first time, it`s 1000% organic and it´s danish, what`s not to love? Oh, yeah, and the colors...
