Welcome to Bøgevald, a website about knitting. My name is Lise and I recently started this site because I have a mission: I want to explore the positive impact that knitting can have on our lives and the reasons why knitting makes us happy.

I share content about knitting for our own well-being, sustainability, and slow living. A very stressful period in my life has made me want to explore these subjects more deeply, and I felt the urge to do it through this blog.

I also make knitting patterns inspired by nature and simplicity and I share practical tips and information about knitting as well as my own knitting projects.

I learned to knit as a child only taking a break in my late teens. So I feel that this craft has always been my companion.

A walk in the woods or by the sea is one of the best things I can do for myself. Just like knitting it clears my mind and makes me instantly happy and grateful. Yoga helps me to keep my body healthy and it does the trick of preventing aching shoulders when knitting (a lot). My children and my husband mean the world to me. Spending time with them is the best. I’m based in Aarhus, Denmark.

Always feel free to comment on the blog, I appreciate it.
