Knitting Cats




This illustrations has been lying around for over a month now, and since my dad asked if he could get it as an iphone case before the free shipping expires I finished it this morning. The print can be purchased in my Society6 shop! Remember, free shipping ends tomorrow!

This illustration will be dedicated to my boyfriend. Because a few years ago when I was away in Latvia during christmas, he knitted a pair of pink socks for me that I got when I came home. And he hadn't knitted anything before. I don't think any guy would do that!
However... imagine Lollo having knitted socks to me when I get home!

    1. Hihi, a few people have said this. I wish I had an iphone too so that I could advertise my work every time I spoke on the phone :)

  5. There is three reasons why I chose "The three knitting cats". First - I like he picture. It has IT=feeling.
    Second - This picture brings me back to my childhood. I can recall the feeling when my grandmother together with other women used to come together in the long dark winter nights and they were sitting together and knitting and having those conversation about nothing and everything. There was something special about those evenings/nights - tone of their voices, gloominess and calmness of the room and the special code governing through the time and over the place. And I was sitting behind them listening and just doing nothing and feeling so good (safe, protected, belonging). And this brings me to the third reason - telephone is about conversation and communication. And positive vibes is what one wants most of the communication, isn´t it.

    1. Så fint. Det är svårt att hitta den där tryggheten som man har från sin barndom. Jag och Mina har pratat om att vi borde ha virknings-klubb där vi sitter och är tantiga tillsammans :)
