@fannaraken er Instagram-dama som ser kul ut uansett hvilket strikkaplagg hun har på seg. Denne fargerike frøkna har rykter på seg for å ha lynraske pinner, og vi var så heldige at vi fikk være “hjemme hos” Ingunn!

@fannaraken looks smashing on Instagram no matter what knitted garment she wears. This colourful lady has a reputation of having superspeedy knitting needles, and we were lucky enough to “get cozy” with Ingunn!

Fortell litt om deg selv
Eg heiter Ingunn og bur i Oslo med mann og tre barn. Eg er musiker av yrke og jobber som Oboist i Det Norske Blåseensemble som holder til i Halden. Ein utrolig varier t og spennende jobb der eg får spille alt fra barokkmusikk til fri improvisasjon.Når eg har tid løper eg. Langt, kort, i skog eller på asfalt. Gjerne oppover. Og så synker eg sammen i sofaen når ungene har sovna. Med strikketøy og et glass rødvin.

Tell us a little bit about yourself
My name is Ingunn and I live in oslo with a husband and three children. I’m a musician and play the oboe in Det Norske Blåseensemble, which is located in Halden. It’s a very versatile and exciting job where I get to play everything from baroque music to free improvisation. When I have time, I run. Far, fast, in the forest or on asphalt. I love to run up hills. And then I let myself sink into my couch when the kids have fallen asleep. With my knitting project and a glass of red wine.

Fortell om hvor du helst strikker
Det å jobbe som musiker fører med seg mykje reising både i inn og utland – og dermed mykje strikketid.Vi er ein liten gjeng som pendler Oslo-Halden daglig, mykje bonus-strikketid. Sammen med kaffe og superflotte kollegaer, pendling er topp!

Where do you prefer to knit?
Working as a musician leads to a lot of traveling both abroad and in Norway – and thus I have a lot of time to knit. We are a small crew that commutes from Oslo to Halden daily, which makes for a lot of bonus knitting time. Together with some coffee and great collegues – commuting is the best!

Hva er det fineste du har laget i vårt garn?
Det må være Posh ponchokjole. Og Hallo heldress. Og fleire varianter løvlisjal.

What is the prettiest thing you’ve made in our yarn?
That would have to be the Posh poncho dress. And Hello onesie. And multiple variations of Lovely leaf shawl.

Hvilket Pickles-plagg har du brukt mest og hvorfor?
Oioi.. Eg har brukt dei tre Pickles<3Dagny-kjolene mine innmari mykje….Og dei fire drømmegenserne er virkelig en genserfavoritt. Digger passformen, og ikkje minst kombinasjonen Pickles Merino bliss og Silk mohair. Og så må eg også nevne Hallo heldress.. som eg knapt har tatt av meg siden den blei ferdig.

What Pickles garment have you worn the most and why?
Oh wow.. I have worn my Pickles<3Dagny dresses an awful lot.. And the four Dreamy sweaters I have are all favourites of mine. Love the fit, and the combinations of Pickles Merino bliss and Silk mohair. And I would have to mention the Hello onesie.. which I’ve hardly taken off since it was finished. 

 

Hva er det som gjør strikking så bra?
At eg får et ferdig produkt, til å ta og føle på. Det er ikkje alltid like lett å kjenne på resultatet av alle timene på øvingsrommet med oboen.

What makes knitting so great?
The fact that I get a finished product that I can see and feel. It’s not always easy to feel the results of all the hours I spend practicing the oboe.

Hvem kunne du tenkt deg å være hjemme hos om du kunne?
@bergljotkveim. Digger detaljene og blingen hennes. Superinspirerende!

Who would you like to get cozy with if you could?
@bergljotkveim. Love the details and the bling. Super inspiring!
