vintage knitting



Birgitta Forslund, knit wear designer and friend, released her book "Stickat och virkat - vintage på svenska" this week. Fabulous photos, funny and smart. And knit descriptions for every piece. The book is a collaboration with photographer Åsa Dahlgren, stylist Gudrun Bonér och makeup artist Lydia Gerlam.

Birgitta has knitted for as long as I've known her, I'm proud she has materialized her dreams. Wish the book will inspire many others (and hope soon available in English too).
