I am off on an adventure very early tomorrow morning! An adventure with my creative soul sister and co-producer Claudia. Together we are going on a knitting adventure in the far north of Denmark, near Skagen. We are staying in a beautiful Danish holiday house very close to the beach, a beach with beautiful white sand and natural dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see. With the North and Baltic Sea only a thin stretch of land apart, we are sure to enjoy some fabulous walks and beautiful sunsets. We will go in search of treasure washed ashore, shells, pieces of colourful glass, and maybe we will even find a little piece of Baltic Gold (Amber).
High on the agenda is research and inspiration gathering for future projects together, and I will be taking part in a three day workshop learning how to use natural, as well as synthetic dyes to hand paint yarn. This workshop will be taught by Claudia, who is the creative master behind all the Wollsinn hand painted yarns, and will take place at the headquarters of Isager Yarns.
To say that I am just a little bit excited is an understatement, I have been looking forward to this for ages. My case is packed, boarding pass printed and all I need to do is change some money at the airport.
As always, I will keep a travel journal, and providing there is WiFi at the holiday house you will be able to get an update most days here on the blog. Watch out for an interview with Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga coming soon too.
I leave you with a sneak peek of my latest design, “Santorini”, fresh off the needles. Pattern coming soon!
