    • My husband learned to knit when at school in Scotland, but knitting didn’t stick with him. I learned at home from my Swedish Faster Anna, and it did. I did teach my kids to knit (the ones that would endure it, that is), perhaps there is a revival happening out there in the fibre world, though.

  1. I wish that I had a beautiful sleeping bag like Rose. Maybe I’ll search for a pattern on Ravelry ..now that I’ve signed up! Sweet dreams of dalahasts!

  2. So warm and comfy – I can see why Rose does not want to get out of her ‘sleeping bag’. I must learn to knit –
    that would be exciting.
