Guess who's in high spirits!
I just discovered that one of my projects has been nominated for a Bobby Award on Ravelry in the category "Best Use of Texture in a Project". Thrilled to pieces!
This is a sweater I knitted in 2008 using the old Scandinavian twined knitting technique, which I had learnt about a year earlier from Anne-Maj Ling. I wrote a short entry about the technique in October last year.
My "Marzipan" sweater is a personal favourite project of mine, a lot of work (it's a time-consuming technique) but also a lot of fun. I don't think I've ever learnt so much from a single project.
Another thing I'm excited about is my new job. I just started teaching at a school in dear old Uppsala, where I studied in the 90s. Here's a photo of the street where the school is. Not bad, eh?
