After the Amsterdam weekend and the 6 week North America Tour, Fanø Strikkefestival, the biggest knitting event in Denmark, was the last stop on the summer of traveling.
Fanø Strikkefestival happened this weekend. I had been looking forward to this event for a long time. I had great expectations – and I wasn’t let down. Not one bit.
I met a lot of great people, like the super cool, Danish tv-host and knitter Christine Feldthausand of course all my amazing students who I shared inspirations with and laughsThanks Elsebeth Solskin for taking the class photos.
I also visited a small exhibition called ‘Laboratorium’ which contained works of different textile artists. It was super inspiring. I really need to dust off my knitting machine!

One of the artists involved was the Danish designer Iben Høj, who’s book I had to get. I am now officially an Iben Høj fan!
It was an amazing weekend! and I definitely plan on going back for next year’s festival.

Upcoming: My next knit-along on Ravelry airs on October 1. Make room in your knitting calendar and get hold of 4 skeins of sock yarn. More info to come in the Ravelry group.
My classes at SAFF in Asheville, NC are filling, but there is still room. So go sign up! I love it when my classes are big.
