So I thought to myself, why not? I can do the hat and scarf set...I'll just email the wonderful woman who has the sets and be on my way. I really took my time though beforehand to find out that hey! she is from Sweden! Of course I knew this to a point when I seen that it was called Bohus Stickning.
I had no idea until I really looked that the museum where you can buy the patterns and kits is in Uddevalla, which is where I was in May with some friends. When I got a reply from Solveig it turned out we are almost like 2 peas in a pod....but not really. She is Swedish whereas I can only speak it fluently from living there for a few years..haha...And she also lives in my city of Göteborg which fascinates me to no end.
Well it is quite costly for me to buy the hat kit. I have very little money saved in my Swedish bank account and not worth it for me to send more money to it. So now the dilemma is...do I spend $90 on a hat kit? Whew! That's a lot of money! But it would be just like the original from 1958
What to do, what to do.....
