Why I made my webplace
Pia's Knitting cottage
This page started like
(N.B. This part isn't true,
it's just FANTASY!)
"Here you can find and
order your favourite sweater! I am a former highschool teacher, who got
burnt out from my job. I have now disablement pension and I spend my
time knitting sweaters for you in my little cottage in the Goingewood in
the south of Sweden."
But it all
started that way, when it was a schoolwork in my webdesigncourse at a
grown-up-school, autumn 2001, in Sweden. We should do a webplace either
for a union, which
have some connection to our community or introduce
our own business company.
contribution became my own little business company "Pia's Knitting
Cottage". It had also a connection to my community, when I said it was
in the Goinge wood (but the photo on my indexpage we have taken on a
holiday in another part of Sweden called Dalarna.)
Because of my company doesn't excist (and I'm not at former highschool
teacher either) I have taken
away my page where people could send
their orders to me.
The reason for my decition to make a Knitting Cottage was due to my
teachers demand of only
using our own photos. So what should I do? We
hadn't much time and I had no digitalcamera then.
I had to start searching for my material in my old photo albums. And
I found what I was looking for!
I had proudly taken photos of my
children in their homeknitted sweaters I made for them and also
children. A bit of retouch on the photos (actually more than a bit, it
took awfully much time
for me to do it) but then my material was ready!
The patterns on my sweaters I have embroidered

simple model with only
straight pieces that I sewed together.
