Norwegian Knitting

June,


How is your new knitting project coming along?  The yarn sounds lovely.  Mine's on hold as I'm reconsidering which pattern to use .....is dithering a real Pisces thing or something?  Went to a stitches and craft show yesterday, and there seems to be a real revival of knitting with far more interesting wools available now.  Couldn't find an archive with that Jaeger 4-ply Norwegian pattern to send you a web-link, wasted a lot of time on Google again trying, though! 


A lady from the NSW Knitters' Guild referred me to a book of N. Knitting patterns, after remarking on her 8-ply (DK, double Knitting) one she was wearing, and where to get it.  You know I was considering though, a library book with cross-stitch 'geometric-type' patterns might be the go, then just centreing each and working out the number of repeats, using a plain 4-ply pattern for the shaping and number of stitches etc, hey may have hit on something!
