This is what artists at Konstepidemin do these days, help each other change to winter tires.

Found textile artist Kari Steihaug via Marie-Louise Sundkvist. She "unknits" clothes and makes new meaning from them, sometimes whole landscapes. Right now she is part of the show Everyday life at Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, Trondheim.
For a book project Archive; The Incomplete and Forlorn she collects unfinished, abandoned knit work. If someone wants to contribute an unfinished knitting project, she returns it after photographing if that is the wish, or else includes the yarn in a future installation, her address here.
And, as it happens, in the same Everyday Life exhibition is work by a clever and talented ceramic friend Jennifer Forsberg. Two other interesting Swedes in the show, Pontus Lindvall and Kjell Rylander.
For Elly Yap and who else wants to know; here are the underwater rugby rules. Maybe I would drown if I tried playing it nowadays, but it IS great fun, an exhausting and totally crazy sport.
Camilla Engman screen printed last week, lovely pictures.
