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.

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A knitting bag book is a small journal or notebook in which you will keep technique notes and historical references during the course.
