Hi everyone! I knit, but knitting is much more than just knitting for me… Knitting has become a big part of my life. It is how I express myself through teqniques, colors, designs others or mine, every day. I like to dig deep into Norwegian knitting history and use that history to inspire me to make the perfect garment for the right purpose. I can make m y own garments from scratch, or follow a pattern. I love to combine colors and make something uniqe. It is not only the traditional yarn that is interesting to me. All textiles and fabcris are interesting to explore an I have recently started to sew a little bit but only by hand. Nature is one of my favorite places to knit and I bring my knitting everywhere. The thought of creating and making everywhere at any time is inspiring and motivating. Knitting is also a nice thing to talk about with others if they are interested. Here in Norway we have knitting cafe t o meet other knitters. Knitting or making in social settings are interesting and the way our hands can work while our mouths communicate has me fascinated. Holding fibers and seeing new colors, putting them together try and fail, try again and maybe succeed with the idea is alway fun and educational. I never know when I have time to knit so it is with me everywhere, physically or mentally. Maybe you knit?

    Fascinating ! I’m not kniting but i find it a really good way to concentrate on yourself, calm down from everyday stress and make thoughts about everything while kniting! So, I would like to learn! Your creations are fantastic ! Thank you for your post and looking forward to meeting you !

    Hi Tomine
    I knit too, mostly mittens. I knit for my family, and I wear self-knitted mittens all winter. It is cozy to knit in family parties together with a knitting mother-in-law and sister-in-law. My mittens often get green stripes because green is my favorite color.
    Regards Anja
