Bohus knitting

I decided to do something about the bohus and I decided to knit a hole one too so I contacted solsilke and asked about the new kit; the myrtle and about my bohus. The pattern on my sweather is called "tobacco" and she sells yarn separately for the body, not the yarn for the yoke. The yarn is a wonderful angora/merino blend and when I knit it it I don´t get that weird color that I recall the sweather had before frogging.

The yoke is a little felted so I have to use my mathematic skills here. There are 448 stitches on the finished yoke. The new knitting has a different gauge so I start by knitting two stitches together every 5 and 4 stitch and then I divide the stitches for arms and front and back using some kind of percentage.

The bohus sweathers where knittet on two sticks and sewed together; I do the knitting on circular needles but as for a raglan like the original. I use the Myrtle pattern as a reference.
Yesterday I went to look at an open garden in the next town ( Lund) The garden belongs to one of our wellknown chefs and his mother who is an author has written a book about the garden and the house ( Maryhill by Lotte Möller )
The Garden is open a weekend each summer and they serve the most wonderful Kakbuffé cockiebuffé with coffea the or whatever you like to drink and as much of it.
And Yes! I ate it all!

Hej Karin,
Længe siden, nu kommer jeg snart hjem igen om 9 dage.
Du må tage mig med til Lund og spise lidt af de lækkere ting du har sat til livs,
