Welcome to a happy and harmonious site dedicated to all things yarn related. I create my own designs in both knitting and crochet and often improvise as I go along.
I learned to knit at a young age, but only now has my crafty side really flourished. In fact, my move from the UK to Sweden in August 2010 was a huge catalyst for creativity. Until recently, I was lucky enough to spend my days playing beautiful folk music surrounded by the idyllic scenery of northern Sweden. In between my studies, practising and performing, I picked up my knitting needles (or crochet hook) and discovered that my agile clarinettist fingers were well suited to composition in yarn as much as in music.
And so to the name: “garnharmoni.” In Swedish, this simply means “yarn harmony.” I hope the music, colour, life, warmth, comfort, cosiness, calmness, reflections in my handicrafts shine through. It takes time and care to be a crafter, but what an enjoyable indulgence of time. Here’s to more harmonious moments wrapped up in yarn…
