Rikke Mattsson  Copenhagen. Chemist. Mother of three. Wife. Avid knitter, but occasionally I do cross stitches and crotchet. Love cooking and gardening.

Fall is over us and it's time to resume some of the cosy hobbies.

Made some changes on the bind off's for a more elegant look. Also, I shifted the buttons because the stripes were slightly off. I'm satisfied now.

Sorbet cardigan smoking hot off the needles and ready to be worn tomorrow for a lunch with my girls.
Originally I opted for a short 4 colour version but I changed my mind in the process and added the purple bottom row for a better fit.

Mollie Mohair offers me split feelings. I love the look but the size is way off. I was hoping for a snugg and elegant fit, instead it's at least two sizes too large, offering a more baggy look. And yes, I did swatch, and I went for a size M, as I usually do. I'm puzzled to know what went wrong.

Weekend means time for knitting. My kind of yoga.

Finally all done and ready to be worn. But who can wear a cotton-wool blend in this heat? 🌞

Travelling and knitting goes hand in hand in my world. Usually the travelling is business related but this time its pure pleasure.
I'm sitting on the balcony enjoying a late evening knit after a full day of sun and bathing in the Mediterranean Sea. The photos show my near view and far view, respectively. #hvirvelvindtop by @by_nuhrknitting on the needles, finishing the second frill.

Enjoying my own company in a quiet momet in the garden. Swatching for my next project #hvirvelvindtop #bynuhrknitting.
Using #camarose #sommeruld #mint2029 supplied by #knitwedo. Can't wait to wear it.

One very nice benefit of having a daughter is you can make candy coloured mother-daughter matching sets 💟
My bespoke version of the Ella sweater has short sleeves, and a short body with a long rib. The Bella tunika will more or less be as the pattern dictates.
