Jeg har haft en ret vild uge. Vildt god, heldigvis!

I efteråret blev jeg booket til to arrangementer her i januar (det var så inden, jeg vidste, at jeg også liiige startede nyt job), som jeg har glædet mig meget til.

I have had a pretty crazy week. Crazy good, luckily!

In the autumn, I was booked for two events this January (I said yes to both at a time, where I didn’t know I would be starting at a new job this month too), which I have been looking very much forward to.

Den søde strikker i sin Eiri

I tirsdags var jeg på Nordatlantens Brygge og holde et foredrag om ‘Sjaler Nordfra‘ – både om inspirationen bag sjalerne og om min designproces. Det var både vildt sjovt og hyggeligt. Og så var der en af strikkerne, der havde strikket et ‘Eiri’ og havde det med – der findes ikke ret meget, der er større, end at se sit design ‘i det fri’!

Det andet arrangement var så en workshop hos Nynne & Co i går, hvor jeg underviste en flok virkelig søde strikkere i logikken bag sjalsformer. Jeg elsker den matematiske logik bag formerne, og det var skønt at se, at det lykkedes mig at få formidlet logikken videre.

Thuesday I held a little talk at Nordatlantens Brygge about my book, the inspiration behind the designs, and my design process. I had a great time, and had the very great pleasure to see one of the shawls in the wild, as one of the knitters had knit ‘Eiri’ and was wearing it. There is no greater compliment to a designer.

The second event was a workshop yesterday at the yarn shop Nynne & Co, where I taught a wonderful group of knitters about the logic behind the shaping of shawls. I love the mathematic inherrent in the shapes, and it was great to see, that the students caught the logic too.

Flittige hænder til workshop

På en uge har jeg således kunne sætte krydser ved to af tingene på min ‘bucket list’ – nemlig at holde foredrag om min bog og at undervise i strikketeknik. Begge dele er absolut noget, jeg gerne vil fortsætte med, men det er vel altid noget særlig, når det er første gang.

In one single week, I have managed to tick off two items on my bucket list – one was to speak about my book and process, and the second was to teach a knitting workshop. Both will hopefully be something I will continue doing, but there is something special about the first times.

Tak til Halla for billedet af mig under foredraget!
