Confetti

Untitled
Hi! How are you?
I'm good :)

Untitled
This man was in Amsterdam earlier this week and came home with a couple of tasty cheeses.

Untitled
The trees look like confetti.

Untitled
We shared a pizza in the sun as welcome home party.

Untitled
I've been a bit too social this week, I find it hard to find balance between being with people and being alone. I need so much alone time to recharge my energy to be social again, do you know what I mean?

Anyway, it's Saturday and the last day of September. Took a walk around my neighbourhood earlier today and thought about how beautiful everything will be the coming 4-6 weeks. Colour explosions, hopefully some foggy mornings, heavy rain, heavy sun, starting to heat up the apartment again, staying home a lot, reading books, binge watching tv-series while making Wrist Worms. I have a good feeling about this Fall.

Stay warm

Untitled
The other day I met my friend Tenia for coffee and to take some pictures of Wrist Worms. Seeing my friends wearing the Wrist Worms makes me very happy.

Untitled
The season is here for sure. I always keep a pair in my bag these days, for the chilly mornings and evenings.

Untitled
This is the bordeaux pair.

Untitled
And this is the curry pair. Efaristo, Teniaki!

Here you find lots and lots of different colours of Wrist Worms.

Today I woke up to a very dark and rainy day, love it. Spent an hour in bed drinking coffee, talking to Johan, looking at food pictures on Instagram. Now I'm working until it's time to meet up with friends for some food and celebrate Ben, who's running the Berlin Marathon right now.

New stuff!

Untitled
I have finally started working on a new collection of Wrist Worms for larger hands. They are made of a mix of 65% wool and 35% alpaca and right now my favourite yarn to work with. Here you see the petrol pair.

Untitled
Not only have I been working on new Wrist Worms, I also made a few beanies, here is the bright lilac one together with a brand new loop scarf and a pair of anthracite Wrist Worms.

Untitled
Love how Johan combined the coral Wrist Worms with his green sweater.

I hope you will like the new stuff :)
Thanks for popping by!

Last meal in Sweden

Untitled
And, so it's time to say bye to Sweden this time. Hope to return next year.

Untitled
A blurry picture from Johan's parents' living room, that sofa is so comfy. I fall asleep as soon as I lie down in it.

Untitled
Gave Johan's mum a pair of my favourite Wrist Worms.

Untitled
It was time for our last meal together.

Untitled
From the greenhouse, of course.

Untitled
The cheeses we bought in Stockholm, blogged about it :)

Untitled
Delicious!

Untitled
This is an omelette with chanterelles.

Untitled
And one omelette with ham for Johan's dad, who drove us to Stockholm airport, sweetheart.

Have been back home for 3 weeks now, mostly making Wrist Worms and having my brother from another mother, Erik, here for some days. Fall is here and I enjoy it fully, I will take in every moment and collect sun inside of me, because hey! We all know the brutal, grey Berlin winter is coming and I love it. It's in a way how I see my Berlin, since I visited here in Winter most of the time before moving here. Are you ready for Berlin pictures? I plan to take my camera out from now on.

Last meal in the greenhouse

Untitled
Our last night in Sweden. Chilling the glasses for...

Untitled
...dirty dry martini! My number 1 favourite cocktail. And popcorn, yum.

Untitled
Johan's mum made seafood risotto, I helped her a bit. I love pouring wine into food, even more than pouring it into myself.

Untitled
We spent the night here. The dessert was champagne with lemon sorbet. I always prefer savory stuff, like a cheese platter, as dessert and now I found a sweet one that I like, thank you mother-in-law!

Untitled
Thinking of that greenhouse every day, looking forward to next time.

One more Sweden post to go and then Berlin will make a come back on this blog again ;)

I bought a house

Untitled
The second last day in Sweden. Me and my mother-in-law got up and made breakfast; leftovers from our crayfish party on Saturday.

Untitled
So good.

Untitled
Then we went out for a walk.

Untitled
Saw a poisonous snake, it was dead. RIP.

Untitled
Admiring this door, how beautiful is that colour...?!

Untitled
Then I decided to buy this house.

Untitled
This will be my bedroom on bright summer nights.

Untitled
And here is my swimming pool.

Untitled
Another view of my new house.

Untitled
Beautiful flowers in my garden.

Untitled
Will always know what time it is.

Untitled
This is going to be a combined studio and guesthouse. Move in date: Next life.

Untitled
Made me laugh. It says AWAY in Swedish. Go away, dreams of that new house!

Untitled
After the walk, we were hungry again and made a chanterelle toast.

Lunch in the forest

Untitled
This is Johan's grandparents' house. After almost 7 years in Berlin, I cannot tell you what a luxury it is to be able to go to a place like this and breathe super fresh air. And the tap water, you wouldn't believe me.

Untitled
The view from the house. Forest, forest, forest.

Untitled
Johan's grandmother is so good at details. Like her daughter, Johan's mother.

Untitled
Grandmother had made soup while we were out in the forest picking mushrooms.

Untitled
The bass from the night before (which grandfather had fished). The soup was super super delicious, made of cream, some seafood cheese, dill, carrot etc. Couldn't stop eating.

Untitled
Time for dessert.

Untitled
Cream & cloudberry jam. And grandfather on his smartphone.

Untitled
Waffles! We have this every time we visit the grandparents, as well as when we visit my father.

Untitled
In the evening, we picked up some Indian take away to enjoy in the greenhouse with Johan's mum. Was a delightful night; we made a fire, listened to music and drank Kraken.

Picking mushrooms

Untitled
Monday, 3 weeks ago. We woke up at Johan's grandparents' house and had a long breakfast together (the evening before we had a lovely dinner with bass, potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms) and then Johan, his grandfather and I went into the forest.

Untitled
I had only picked mushrooms once before in my life, it was exciting.

Untitled
We found a few, I wasn't really into it because I was very absorbed by the light and the scents.

Untitled


Untitled
Johan found one that he thought was worth taking an extra picture of.

Untitled
We went back to this place.

Untitled
Hello, fluffy!

Untitled
Chanterelles & a porcino.

Untitled
We, of course, took a fika break with Johan's grandmother. After that Johan & grandfather went back into the forest and we stayed at the house drinking more coffee until they came back.

Untitled
Then we all took a short walk to see if we could find a special type of chanterelle, but they weren't ready yet.

Untitled
So much going on in this picture.

After this, we were all hungry and a delicious lunch was waiting for us in the kitchen.
