Meet Pia from beautiful island Gotland, Sweden! 🇸🇪 @kammebornia
Pia has been knitting since childhood. Together with her husband and daughter she produces the Kammebornia YouTube podcast about life in general and knitting in particular.
What are your favorites right now?
Yarn Store: Yllo Tyll in Uppsala, Sweden, it is like yarn heaven.
Yarn: Wooly yarn like Jamieson & Smith and Ullcentrum Oland. Gotland wool of course, it has a beautiful fiber-aura. And I also have a weakness for Rowan Yarns.
Why do you knit? Because I love to. To stay sane, for pleasure, to provide me and my dear ones with handknitted garments. And now it is also my job. It was the necessary way to go, since I knit all the time. So I began making and selling my own patterns, started a podcast and my own business where I inspire other people to knit.
Most challenging project? To finish the socks my grandmother had begun knitting before she died. It was a challenging project emotionally, and it took me 7 years to lift up her needles again and finish the pair she had started. It was heartwarming to be able to give the socks to my daughter as a gift from both me and my grandmother. Otherwise it is also challenging to construct my own patterns and make other people understand what I am doing.
What’s your new favorite thing? It is an old thing, since I do not often buy new things. I love my new but old English teacup. It is perfect when I am knitting.
