Mandarine's is a blog that celebrates my love for nature & wool. It's my virtual home where I like to interact with fellow knitters & yarn lovers. It's my diary where I record my fiber journey and share my design endeavours. It's the place where I dream of homesteading and self-sufficiency.


Blóm pattern

Winter lasts for a very long time here in Latvia. Days are very short and dark, and there’s not a lot of light to enjoy. Back in January, when the whether was very gloomy, I took my camera and headed out to one of my favourite places: the Botanical Museum. This place is such an oasis in the middle of Winter!

Ideas started to overflow in my head, and I imagined the very first draft of this pattern while walking the aisles of the greenhouses. By the beginning of Spring, Blóm was finally born.
