Knitta Has Come To Town

Perhaps you remember the caring city by the water from last summer? I think it was then I saw the first sign of Knitta coming to Stockholm town. Since then I've stumbled over little Knitta projects here and there, and they always leave me with a smile and the thoughts of me too joining the ongoing project of wrapping and taking knitted care of the details around us. So far just a thought, but such a nice one it is!

The latest Knitta discovery was this colorful, artsy wrapping in celebration of a loved mother (mamma). Which is actually a crocheted piece, but who cares, it's still a caring, lovely, handmade detail.

It seems like that particular part of town is very fond of their mothers, just look at this luminescent loveliness of a pink bench just for mummy! Just the thing to brighten up any bleak, damp January day. I'm now contemplating getting one of my own, in the garden. Such an eyecatching moodlifter. Perhaps if I'm really good, the hairy herd will bring me one for next birthday?

The text "Jag ska måla hela världen lilla mamma" translates to "I'll paint the whole world, little mummy" and that's also the name of a well-known Scandinavian hit from the 70ies, sung by a Norweigan childstar.
