As long as I'm cruising the bookshelves, I have to mention this little gem. Norwegian Patterns for Knitting is from Mette Handberg, who has designed for Dale of Norway and is an award-winning Norwegian designer.
These are gorgeous projects – traditional motifs and colorwork – but with some modern shaping. Yum yum yum.
Makes me think we might have to schedule a Norwegian Sweater workshop or knitalong. Contact us if you're interested.
Seriously – with a little guidance and comraderie, you can knit these things!
