Made by my grandmother

I just read on Helene Magnussens blog about her grandmother Olga, who was a great knitter. Helene Magnussen is an Islandic knitter and designer living in Luxembourg. Her post inspired me to show you some of my grandmother's work.



My grandmother was a clever crafter, she knitted and sewed, and after she retired, took on tapestry weaving. I like to think I have inherited something from her. These are hanging in our mountain cottage.



This represents Odin riding his eight-legged horse Sleipner, read more about that on Wikipedia.

Så flotte.
Det er morsomt å ha slike gamle håndarbeider. Du har helt sikkert arvet et talent fra henne.
