To all knitting enthusiasts from north to the south of Sweden we wish to express our gratitude for your wonderful contributions to “Knit for Sweden”.

More than a month ago we asked Swedish knit enthusiasts to knit mittens for the Swedish pavilion at the world exposition and we got response. Every mitten has been a display of creativity and skill and they will surely grace the exhibition at the Swedish pavilion during Expo 2010.

Many of the contributors have written a few lines and one of them is Margareta Semborn from Linköping, born 1931, who writes:

“After I read about the theme of the Swedish pavilion exhibition my thoughts turned to my childhood’s winters in Norrland – snow, chill, northern lights and long nights. That is why my contribution is dark blue like the northern sky in winter time and pink and white like the aura of the northern lights so often was”.

Contributions have arrived from young as well as old, from handicraft unions and from school classes. We are moved and impresses by the quality and width of Swedish craftsmanship and the will to contribute to an exhibition that will inspire and warmth the Chinese visitors at Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
