Scandinavia

Hey, crafty folks! We just got back from a few weeks in Scandinavia. Denmark, Sweden and Norway were always places I wanted to visit and having my family there with me, surrounded by a deep sense of history but also modernism, LOTS of knitting, art, good food and absolute beauty made it the trip of a lifetime. I  could live in Sweden in a heartbeat and my head came back crammed with inspiration and my suitcase came back full of yarn. I loved every minute.

I came across this brief article recently and it reminded me of our incredible trip. Definitely worth sharing and if you’re interested, be sure to check out her Instagram account. Original article found here.

Guerrilla Crocheting Adds a Splash of Color to the Streets of Stockholm

Stockholm-based street artist Julia Riordan became obsessed with knitting and crochet at the age of 10 and eventually launched her own line of knitware in 2012. Soon after she started forays into yarn bombing around London and now continues in Sweden, where she recently installed this fun piece titled Splash. More on Instagram. (via StreetArtNews)
