Hello from Denmark

Hello everybody.

I am new to this blog, and like to introduce myself. I am a 35 year old and from Denmark. I have been knitting for a long time on and of. 2½ years ago, I got Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and started knitting for real. I knitted 8-10 hours a day. I wrote a book about how my stress was eased by knitting and it was published last year.

I have knitted 2 Mermaids, a Diva, a Linus, a Tweedie and have just started my third Mermaid.

Welcome, and how very interesting about your book. What is the title - is it published in English? I've been knitting since I was 5 or 6 and it has always been a great relaxant for me.

Elaine - My book is called "Strik og stress af" - its someting like "Knit and destress" in English. It not published ind English. Do you know www.stitchlinks.com? Its a homepage about knitting as relaxation.

fiberfantastic - ohhh yes, I´m a Mermaid-lover!!! It´s the most fantastic design ever - in my opinion. I have pictures, but I had problems uploading, but I´ll try again later.

Hello & welcome! I would love to see pictures of your Tweedie. I have the kit, just haven't had the motivation to start yet.
