This week I enjoyed a couple of days in lovely Copenhagen with my sister, mother and grandmother. My mother and grandmother usually goes on a trip together every spring, and this year my sister and I was invited along. This time of year is a time when you really see the differences between Norway and Denmark. The flight only last for about one hour, but in Norway I was so amazed when I found a blooming tulip in my garden. Here are the tulips in Copenhagen:
So as you can imagine, seeing so many flowers in bloom was almost ecsotic for us norwegians.
We also went to the Tivoli one evening. Which is almost mandatory if you are visiting Copenhagen. It is the second oldest amusement park in the world.
One of the other destinations we wanted to visit during our visit was a store called “Mormor“, that sells childrens clothes. The unik thing about this store is that all the garments are hand knitted, mostly by older women living in the area. The clothes themselves are timeless and are designed so they can be worn most of the year. We discovered the store when my sister entered a contest on instagram, and won a beautiful cardigan for my niece. Unfortunately the store was closed when we dropped by.
And of course, I can not travel abroad without visiting a yarn shop. We found a lovely one near Strøget, the biggest shopping area in Copenhagen. The store is called Sommerfuglen and had lots of yarn brand that was new to me, and the service was impeccable. I will definitely visit it again next time I am in town.
I bought a ball of Schoppel- Wolle Crazy Zauberball, which I have been wanting to try and some skeins of Geilisk tweed (a danish brand). I also found a couple of skeins of Alpaca 2 by Isager strik (another danish brand), in a lovely mustard shade.
