Photography and Knits by Elise Sophie

norwegian flowers, books in a stack on the bedside table, cups of tea, films with lots of swearing, pincushions shaped as mushrooms, cats with big hearts, friends with many names and flavours, music with a lot of dimensions, knitting needles that mysteriously disappear, and yarn. lots of yarn.

index finger

Soundtrack: Edith Piaf – Monsieur St. Pierre

When I'm writing essays I usually knit a lot as well, as a treat, but also to create something that is literally tangible, something that I can see I'm making progress on. Essay writing involves so much independent thinking and scribbling that at times it feels like I'm not making any progress, or have anything to show for all my hours of devoted typing and reading. Knitting is lovely hobby to pair with essay writing, it grows and shapes itself into something of practical use for me, or for someone else.

My right index finger has now acquired a row of tiny holes as a result of my essay writing, or rather, knitting obsessively in between writing sessions.

My latest project, a couple of weeks ago:

Så fint mønster, og så stilig form! Jeg vet jo ikke hva det skal bli (eller har blitt), men dette ser imponerende ut. Jeg orker ikke ha ull mot kroppen, så jeg ble aldri noen stor strikker. Tillater meg å leve litt gjennom deg, hihi! Klem fra Paris!

Tusen takk! Det har nå blitt et stort og fint sjal. Skal bare gjøre siste finishen før jeg tar et ferdig-bilde. Det er nok det varmeste jeg noen gang har laget, og jeg gleder meg til å gi det bort til jul. Jeg liker klemmer fra Paris! Sender en klem fra Edinburgh til deg!

Thoughts by others

The least strained and most natural ways of the soul are the most beautiful; the best occupations are the least forced.
