Scandinavian Treasures

Went on a little visit and a shop.

I found this nice hood with stitching and thought it might make a nice pattern for knitting.

In my head, I was thinking about the price of the bonnet. How much would I spend on a knitting pattern? Well, this much. But how much would I spend for a challenge! I want to graph this, and then have an idea for the lacy border and decorative edge stitching. It might become something, maybe not. Really cool, tho!

And, I was smitten with these woven apron bands. They remind me of tiny, petite bands that I saw in the Zorn Museum in Sweden on the Vesterheim Textile Tour 2007. The bands on the apron are generously long. And, very finely woven.

Good day with sunshine, little birds, nice friends and shopping!

Oh, I almost forgot. I added to my nostepinne collection. Photos eluded me, so you'll just have to imagine! Think MUSEUM! Carving, and the initals S. O. daintily carved in the side. And, a little rattley wood piece.
