To day is the day where Fruity Knitting Episode 109 and 110 is avaiable on You Tube.

109 I was quite shaky when I opened the video. But I must say - I like it a lot. Even though my English is baby-English. Its OK - the video is full of colors and lots and lots of fun - and also Andrea and Andreas and their daughters knitting and a beautiful part with the Fanø Museum.

110 is manly about the book: Traditional Danish Sweaters. You will hear me tell about the old and new sweaters and the pattersn and techniques.

Traditinal Danish Sweaters

Vivian Høxbro showcases Danish heritage from a proud chapter of knitting history. The 200 star motif patterns in the book have their origin in carefully preserved sweaters that were part of women’s traditional dress in the 1800s. These "night sweaters," as they were called, are a treasure chest of knitted damask patterns: beautiful, single-color relief designs in knit, purl, and crossed stitches, with stars as a particularly charming motif. The book includes 200 charted patterns to incorporate into your knitting; a history of "night sweaters" illustrated with little vignettes; illustrations of special knitting techniques; instructions for modern sweaters as well as shawls, a top, and a tunic; instructions for traditional sweaters worked in today’s measurements and colors. See, enjoy, and discover the wealth of traditional Danish pattern designs, and be inspired to knit your own beautiful classically-patterned sweaters.
