The Artisan – Helga Isager

Helga Isagers new book The Artisan just arrived in my mailbox and it is beyond beautiful. I’ve been in a bit of a slump when it comes to knitting lately. In fact I have spent most of my knitting time planning my vegetable garden. Apparently I need to daydream about Summer and light and all […]
