married, had three daughters, and then knitting changed her life. She moved to Iceland in 1995 attending Textiles and Fashion Design at the Iceland Academy of Arts. Her passion continued as she studied passionately the traditions of Icelandic knitting, which led to her two books: Icelandic Color Knitting and Icelandic Handknits. Helene believes the best way to preserve traditions is to continue using them. Her passions include nature, mountaineering, hiking and cross-country skiing, knitting tours, the Icelandic traditions and culture and, of course, knitting traditions.
