Who are you Frostvirka? My name is Ellinor and I work as a middle school teacher. Crochet is my best therapy for stress. Trying to crochet every day, then I feel best. Lives on a farm in Dalarna with husband and 3 teenage boys, as well as chickens and a cat.

Are you knitting, crochet or maybe both? Crochet, but have also started to knit a little neighbor.

If you switch to a completely different creative activity, what do you do? Copper

How did you learn to crochet / knit? My biggest sources of inspiration have been both my grandmother and my grandmother. Started designing custom designs for 1 1 / 2 years ago.

What is your best advice for someone who would like to start creating their own design? I always write down the patterns as they grow, you quickly forget details otherwise.

How does a design idea become a finished design and how do you best put together nice color combinations? Jag shoots nice color combinations that I see in nature. When we travel, I also shoot lots, beautiful patterns, mosaics and other things that can suddenly become a design idea.

Which is your favoritfärg? Rose

What kind of yarn do you prefer? Cotton yarn for needle 3,0, but also likes thinner and slightly thicker yarn.

Which is your biggest knitting or crochet tab? That I did not write down the pattern for my first article.

Which one are you most proud of? Always my latest design.
