The mittens are knitted i wool yarn that Klara's mother and grandmother plant-coloured during the summer of 1982. Some time ago Klara received two boxes filled with this yarn and she felt that it was about time that it came to use again, 29 years later!
"Granliden" is Klara's old summer cottage, the place where the yarn originally was plant-coloured. Skvattram, or Rhododendron tomentosum in latin, is the plant that was used when creating the mustard yellow colour.
This project is very typical for the way Klara works, where she finds inspiration from what has always been around her - landscape, family and objects. There is something special with finding and again using something that's been forgotten and untouched for a long time.
