If you guessed that my previous post was mittens, you would be correct!
I have known how to knit for a while now. Mrs. Million taught me how to knit so I could make a scarf for Cricket when I was in elementary school. I picked it up again shortly before moving to Minnesota and it was there I fell in love. Minnesota has some of the best yarn shops I have ever seen. Most are quaint shops with inspiration around every corner. It was in Minnesota that I discovered Dale of Norway and other Norwegian-inspired patterns (and it doesn’t hurt that Minnesota has a high population of people with Scandinavian roots). It quickly became a goal of mine to knit a Dale of Norway sweater. Now, I don’t actually have any Norwegian roots, but as a knitter I feel like I just might be!
I got a book a few weeks ago called Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition that is filled with patterns for gloves and mittens from Selbu, a small area of Norway. Although I have never been to Selbu, knitting these mittens took me right back! I imagined myself sitting on the porch of a small, rustic cabin overlooking a fjord while knitting.
