Take A Look At My Fish

Yes. It´s done. I finally finished my wollen sweater with the fish shoal. Not that it was a difficult pattern. But it took a lot of time counting and counting stitches to make the fishes swim along in harmony.

I can´t say how happy I am now. To put this on for the first time - well, that´s even better than chocolate. Hm, let me think a little about that...

This project started when I discovered the pattern from the danish designer Hanne Thorsen. It´s actually a childrens pattern. I´m never growing up...

I found some of my old patterns to make the stitches and everything else right with these fishes.

It´s knitted with norwegian yarn of wool (Pt2 and Rauma) and it´s just lovely to wear.

So now I don´t need to find Nemo. His right there - can you see him?

Creating is mostly about a finished project. But to me it´s in the end all about the way to it. All the thinking, working and playing.


And to finally realize that I can - just exactly whatever I want to do.

This took a lot of time - but it was worth it. Stitch by stitch. Or step by step.
