First a brief word about the photos in this blog they are ALL used by permission of Madeleine Nilsson. They are hers and are NOT to be copied or shared without her express permission.
Madeleine Nilsson and I share one very important thing in common: YARN MADNESS :) In fact http://www.yarn-madness.com/ is the name of Madeleine's blog. This is how she describes herself "My name is Madeleine! I’m a color loving, crafty and pretty shy woman in my late twenties, living in Göteborg (Sweden) with my husband – we met online almost 10 years ago – how about that? And, let’s not forget my beloved (and slightly crazy) cat Busan.
Since 2010 I’ve started crafting, blogging and designing, and the yarn madness is complete and never ending. I love the creative outlet and lovely crafty people like you – it’s just what I need! When not crafting, I’m studying to becoming a nurse.
What else? I’m one of those who’ll always have too many hobbies and too little time, no matter how much time I have to spare! When not studying to become a nurse, I occupy my days with Ravelry, photography, flea markets, books (mostly paranormal romance, horror, fantasy, adventure and cosy mysteries), color! ♥, colorful things, spending time at home, craft magazines, mythology and legends, movies, horror movies, chocolate, Johnny Depp, tea, writing letters…" You can tell she has a real zest for life can't you? Her patterns reflect her flare for style and the dramatic. They are gorgeous.
Let me share with you 3 of my favorite patterns available through Ravelry.com (She granted me permission to share her patterns so PLEASE do not copy them without asking permission) The first is a beautiful sweater for women. Madeleine models her own clothes very well!
Madeleine has named this sweater Tundra. Although it looks more like a fairytale on her :) Stunning. The price for this pattern is 4.00 US dollars. Again, available on Ravelry.com (membership is free)
The second design is a unisex sweater for boys or girls. It has a playful mood about it and is definitely created for fun and functionality.
In Swedish the pattern is entitled Leksak, in English... simply Pullover. Its adorable! The sleeves are long enough to keep warm but not so long as to get in the way when enjoying some time in play. Sizes for this pattern rage from newborn to age 10. Available on Ravelry.com, the price is 4.00 US Dollars. Patterns are written in British English, so please carefully read through and make sure you are familiar with the British knitters lexicon. The third design is a priceless little dress that I've fallen in love with.
The dress is aptly named Kalas which in Swedish means "party" :) Its an adorable dress with a little room to spare for exploring or birthday party games. Sized 3 months to 12 years this dress is a great addition to any little girls wardrobe. Available on Ravelry.com priced at 3.00 US Dollars.
I think you will agree that Madeleine Nilsson has her finger on the pulse of fashion for any age. I want to thank her for allowing me the privilege of sharing her work and agreeing to allow me access to her photographs.
