Zoom Follow-up! God sommer!

Hello everyone! Thank you for a wonderful end to this Traditional Norwegian Knitting season and for a fun last Zoom session together.

I hope you will enjoy trying out the recipe that I shared and practicing winding yarn on a nøstepinne!

I loved seeing all of the nøstepinnes that you brought to share.

I hope you were inspired to get them out and use them more often!

If you would like Arve to make you a nøstepinne, just email me!

The oldest nøstepinne artifact from my region - Trøndelag 1856 - You can see the little windows and the wooden balls that were inserted to make it a rattle. :)

And now you know...not a simple thing to do!

I will be away from emails and my shop from May 13th until May 18th for the long holiday weekend!

If you are interested in joining the summer course right from the start...this is the last week to do so. Welcome!

The Selbu summer course will begin with vocaburlary/cast on lessons on May 23rd and May 30th. You will be receiving introductory information via email during the week prior to the start.

The Selbu "style" Summer Mitten KAL - participation registration will open between

June 1 through the 4th, with a vocabulary lesson on June 5th.

Information will be sent out to all registered participants in good time before June 5th.

This is an extension of the Selbu Mitten Courses...basic and advanced.

Participation is free.

We will be doing in depth comparisons of Selbu style mittens vs. traditional Selbu mittens.

Join us with interest.

Please do leave any addtional questions below if I have forgotten something that I should have mentioned. :/

If I do not see you in the summer...I hope you will check back in August for a new season of Traditional Norwegian Knitting Courses!

God sommer alle sammen! (Happy summer everyone!)

Warmest regards from the farm,

Patricia x

Hi Patricia -- Yesterday's Zoom was fabulous and bittersweet. You, of course, know I will take every class you offer so I will see many of us in the summer. For those who aren't taking the class it was fun to get to know you. I feel that I am making friends all over the world. You teach the very best classes I have ever taken, and I mean that with my whole heart. Your patience, knowledge, skills, love of Norwegian history and wanting everyone to know as much as we can about traditional Norwegian knitting just gives me a warm feeling all over. Thank you just doesn't seem enough for what you do for us. I will b…


Hi Patricia, I had hoped to join the last Zoom, but couldn’t make it, so I just wanted to say how much I appreciate how you put your heart and soul into your classes. There are no other classes like yours anywhere! I wish I could participate more 😖 However, I always enjoy catching up on the blog and with the lessons. Of course, I will try to join the summer mitten knitting (still working on my advanced mittens) and looking forward to the summer course. I hope you have a lovely, restful break! Pelly

Today’s zoom was a lovely last day of school.

Thank you for all you do and dream of doing for your classes. It is so much fun to hear the stories and history, try our hand at recipes, and be inspired with using old tools.

Thank you classmates for being along on this journey together.

Until the next fun begins, happy knitting and springtime bliss.

Hi Patricia,

I was able to join the zoom session last night for a short time before I needed some more sleep! Thank you very much for all the help during this kofte course. I still have many of the lessons to look at as I am saving them until I reach that point.

You mentioned that you will be updating your website during the summer months, and I just want to ask whether the lessons will be available during this time?

There was also some talk about a 30 second video. I assume this has been mentioned in previous zoom meetings. Could you please clarify what is involved.

I would like to join in the mitten KAL, and it…
