What has torirot been up to lately?



I have finished one of the three wips I want to finish 
(I have also finished the pattern, in Norwegian, 
and found test knitters, 
one of them has already finished her sweater.)


I have been to Shetland Wool Week, which was great, and I hope to tell you more later. It's just that this last week has been busy, with the publishing of our Mitten E-book - Votter fra eventyrskogen (Fairy tale mittens). The book is beeing translated to English, I will let you know when it's available! In the meantime, you can have a look at the patterns on Ravelry, and on our (Norwegian) blog.

Returned to sender

Look what arrived in the mail the other day - my Tuin sweater came back from Twist Collective after a year in the US. Just in time for chilly autumn days.
