What a change to come back to the cold Nordic winter after three weeks in India. There I sat out on the terrace in the sun every morning, untill the sun was too hot and I moved into the shadows. Here I wrap myself in a quilt or a knitted shawl and drink mug after mug with spicy, burning hot chocolate.
Last Christmas I got some beautiful multicoloured wool in shades of blue and grey for Christmas. I added some black from my stach, and suddenly it was perfect for a shawl. Grandmother's squares, a pattern I learned from my two grandmothers when I was a little girl.
