As the knitting work picked up, she has slowly but steadily built up her own business , working with pattern designs, writing, photography, blogging, an online store and as a course leader. She lives with her husband and daughter in Arvika, working in a studio with old creaking floorboards and an incredibly beautiful rose wallpaper.
