From the genes to design

Where does a new design has its beginning?  I think that many designs are a blend of what's going on unconciously in the brain - memories, flashbacks, impressions from what we see everyday....  In this particular case, with my newest design Helleborus Winter Slipover I think I could trace its beginning almost down to my genes.  Being born in Norway several decades ago is synonymous with the fact that I've been wearing lots and lots of Norwegian-patterned sweaters, gloves, stockings... As well as my ancestors.  In my childhood I always dreamt about having a Christmas-red sweater - to change from all the dark blue, dark grey, dark brown ones....
I had to wait for quit a few years before I proudly could start a new winter wearing one!
