When I a couple of months ago received the yarn to start designing this shawl, there was a choice between 9 different colors. Seeing the package I opened, can you imagine how hard it was to make a choice? (Read more on demu.dk/blog)
It’s live! It has been for a little week now. The launch frenzy and everything around it made me so busy that I have had to postpone some things in order to make room for this! (Read more on demu.dk/blog)
About 1 1/2 week ago I published a new free pattern: Biased Stripes.

Today, the Deep Fall issue of Knitty (the first ever and very popular internet knitting magazine) went live. It went live with my cardigan design in it!! I couldn’t believe it when I got the email from Amy saying they had chosen my design. I had thought I’d just want to try to submit it, and was prepared to be rejected. But look – here it is!
At it again – this time I’ve “just” written up the pattern for the socks I made my mom for her birthday! I got a lot of comments on them, and was thinking I could just as well make it available for others.
Last weekend, I was playing with the dyes and yarn, with a whole new colorway as a result: Grass Stained Jeans
I love these colors. The jeans blue is a little variegated, and the streaks of green complement the blue well. This skein would be perfect for small shawl projects like the Graphic Kerchief by The Uncommon Thread, or the Hitchhiker shawlette that thousands have knitted. It would also be perfect together with a more solid yarn in a stripey shawl.
I will most definitely try to repeat this color!
Time for another pattern release: *Starbuck*!
My first sweater design, but oh how I love it!
It’s a relatively simple sweater, worked top down, without any seams. I’ve used the contiguous method for the shoulder & sleeve shaping, a method which at the moment is my preferred one for sweaters. I love the effect of the silver colored DK weight yarn together with the fingering weight black yarn on bigger needles – it makes the sweater cozy, slouchy if I want it, but it could also be worn more fitted!
I have just released a new pattern, called Squishy Short Rows. It is a cowl worked on big needles with any weight of yarn – my initial sample was in lace weight, the second in worsted weight. My testers have tried different yarn weights, and it all comes out fantastic!
I have made my versions in a color changing yarn and in different colors, to show off the construction better. It is of course possible to knit it in one color only – it will show off hand dyed or handspun yarns beautifully!
I just opened my Etsy shop!
I got some lovely yarns there. A little taste:
More yarns are added all the time, and I am also planning to add stitch markers and project bags within the next weeks. Stay tuned – and go have a look!
