Three times each day during spring and summer, I leave the farm and take to the forest path.
Together with my flock of Grå Trønder sheep, we follow along the pathway and climb the mountain.
I use these daily journeys as opportunities to forage and to fill my basket with the natural windfall treasures that I find upon the forest floor.
This traditional, rustic, triangular, farm Hap is warm, light, and has beautiful drape.
Used to wrap yourself up in, as you stroll along the forest path, with your foraging basket.
As you knit along, you simulate picking up pine cones, one by one. One, two, three…until your basket is full and you begin to make the journey home.
This design, in its entirety, was inspired by the journeys I have made along the forest path together with my little flock and the many treasures that I have collected and brought back home to the farm.
Thank you for joining me on the forest path!
