These amazing sweaters were knitted by Siri Söger in the late 1980’s.
Although born in Denmark, Siri Söger grew up in Sweden and, at the time of making these remarkable sweaters, she lived deep within a Swedish forest.
When interviewed, after winning a national knitting competition, she explains how she finds inspiration for her knitwear – I have to live close to a big forest, unspoiled nature exercises such terrific power over me. I live in my little house, with no telephone, no radio, no television, where I’ve made all my own furniture. I fetch water and chop wood. I make clothing and shoes, and I grow some food for my own needs. I want to have a life of my own and I need concentration and solitude to find my pictures.
