Knitting: Finstrikket by Helga Isager

October 16, 2014

I have a “Project Inspiration” board on Pinterest that I’ve been building for awhile now and kept noticing these gorgeous patterns by Helga Isager. I did some digging and ordered one of her books, Finstrikket. I received it in the mail yesterday and have barely put it down since. You would not believe how incredibly beautiful the patterns in this book are. I’m not sure I’ve ever been this enamored with a collection. Aside from the patterns, the photography is breathtaking. Ethereal women and children modeling the knitted garments, broken up by photos of tender scenery and macro shots of fiber. It is written completely in Danish, but I’m determined to translate it to English…I’m a quarter way through my first pattern translation and getting anxious to cast on.

If you’re not familiar with the talents of Helga, you should become acquainted very soon. 🙂
