Jeg fik også besøgt en enkelt strikkebutik på vejen, men det var med min Nova ved hånden, så jeg ved ikke om man kan sige jeg rigtigt fik udnyttet de 5 minutter til optimal garnosning. Butikken virkede ellers fin.

Efter Susanna Hanssons Bohus Stickning-kursus var jeg ikke svær at overtale til at tage op nord for Götebotg til Bohus Län. Det er et helt fantastisk smukt område, og så er der i byen Uddevalla et museum, som skulle have en udstilling med Bohus Stickning. Der måtte vi selvfølgelig hen.

After Susanna Hansson's Bohus Stickning class I was not hard to persuade to travel north of Göteborg to Bohus Län. It is an amazingly beautiful area, and in the town of Uddevalla there is a museum that has an exhibition of Bohus Stickning. Of course we had to go.
The exhibition was smaller than I had expected, but I'm glad we visited the museum. The other exhibits were really nice and the whole experience was very inspiring. The museum was filled with the sounds of a Taube folks song tribute concert, which was moved inside due to rain.
The highlight as far as Bohus Stickning goes, was of the impressive display of knitted up models from Solsilke in the museum shop (I love museum shops), and the long list of knitting kits for sale there.
It is definitely one of my big knitting life ambitions that I need to knit myself a Bohus sweater from a Solsilke kit before I die - and hopefully soon. The only problem is choosing which ...
