Greetings from the farm!

Godt nytt år!

Course registration includes access to 2 specific advanced garments - Oddvars peneste kofte + Nordfjordjakke

Before registering, it is important to carefully read through all information presented and to agree to the course offering and the essential agreements (policies).

I will expect with registration that you have read all information carefully.

See course aggrements below.

The course will officially begin on the weekend of January 29th - with introductory information, the week before - beginning January 22nd.

Course patterns are included within the registration fees.

During the course introduction, I will offer guidance for the perfect fit; measurement support, as you begin to choose your size and help you to create your *gauge swatches following the traditional Norwegian approach.

*Please plan to work on your swatches the week before January 29th, ready for our cast on lessons.

I will also provide the Norwegian language translations needed and support you to establish your knitting bag book during this introductory week.

A knitting bag book is a small journal or notebook in which you will keep technique notes and historical references during the course.

It will also help you to save time returning to shared information on the website platform.

A knitting bag book is highly recommended for use during the course.

All course notifications will be sent to you via email.

These notifications will contain information that will be important for your participation within the course, to engage fully.

Please follow this link, if you need a review to help you acclimate yourself to navigate the course platform.

In everything, please keep in mind that I run a small farm and this is a small website platform, which I maintain completely on my own.

My offerings are not commercial enterprises - but rather, an in depth, hands-on, rich experience - founded on local traditions and historic, Norwegian, textile crafts, from my home in the Selbu region of Norway.

I have signed up and I can’t wait to start! I love your classes. I have learned so much from you!


Hi Patricia,

I just wanted to let you know that I have loved all the courses that I took with you last year. I learned so much and have produced a beautiful kofte, mittens and socks. I wish I was a faster knitter! But I have so many unfinished or not yet started projects, I think I would add to my stress by starting a new one, no matter how much I want to. So I will focus on all the other things, including your forest path hap which I have had the wool for, but still haven’t started.

I‘m hoping to join you next year for another beautiful kofte course. Thank you for your patient teaching and sharing of…
