I always find it annoying to drag myself back to work after a long fun-filled weekend, but today I did.
The highlight of my morning was that the Coke machine spat out two cans of Diet Coke for the price of one.
But things could be worse, and for the most part my day was uneventful.
Roseann asked about the booklet that was created for the Bohus exhibit.
No, that’s not my name on the cover. I’m Wendy D. Johnson. Wendy J. Johnson, the co-author of this booklet, was at the exhibit, so I got to meet her. Her husband took a photo of us together to mark the auspicious occasion: The Meeting of the Wendy Johnsons.
Anyway, back to the booklet. It’s not a pattern collection, but a series of articles and essays about Bohus knitting, written by, among others, Solveig Gustafsson, Kirsten Olsson, Susanna Hansson, and Wendy J. Johnson. It’s a great little book packed with a lot of information and history, and gorgeous photos.
I checked the American Swedish Institute website and don’t see it for sale in their online shop, but you could give them a call and see if you can buy it over the phone.
Speaking of their online shop, they do have a section for Bohus Knitting, and there are kits for sale there. Just sayin’.
ETA: The booklet is now available for sale in the online store — link in the paragraph above.
I’ve finished my Sign of Spring Socks — see?
Tempted Good Grrl sock yarn in the “Iris” colorway — I’ll be writing the pattern up soon.
And here is Lucy, the picture of contentment!
