Knitting, Geography, Photography, Self-Care
Knitography is a story-telling and visual arts project, with a specific interest in advancing the history, art and healing nature of knitting.
My aim is:
*to share the stories and history of Norwegian knitting traditions.
*to promote innovative designs based on traditional Nordic techniques and make them accessible for today's modern knitter.
*to mentor the technical skills of knitting, by encouraging hand knitters in their personal knitting journeys.
*to offer collaborative support to knitters around the world, as they develop and incorporate techniques and creativity within their hand knitted pieces.
*to provide an understanding of Norwegian wool, choosing the correct materials and tools to create a successful and pleasing knitted piece.
*to protect, promote, shepherd, grow, produce and distribute the traditional wool of my local breed of sheep, Grå Trønder sau.
*to promote self care through daily refection within the Knitting Bag Book.
*to support others to create the mindset, activities, practices and habits against stress, unhappiness, illness, depression and negative emotion.
