hierophantrix: Norwegian Fishermens' Jumper

Heisann. I'm new here. My name is Freja.

I am trying to find a pattern or a lesson in how to combine the different coloured wools for the top section of Norwegian fishermens' jumper.

I was only ever taught 'casting on, casting off, knit and purl' by my mother and I will be looking forward to my Scottish granny teaching me cable knit soon, however, I never was taught how to mix the coloured wools into a pattern other than stripes, of course. Do any of you have a pattern you would share with me, or are any of you with webcam and willing to show me what to do? I've had a request from a friend in Australia to make him one of these and send it to him. He did also ask if I might send a nice Scandinavian lady along with it. >:D

Any help is appreciated. Takk. Hade!

taigerchily: knitting and me...

i learned at school how to knit when i was 7 years old, i guess. i thought it's terrible, cause whatever i tried to knit, it also looked terrible. so i was sure i CAN'T knit, for more then 20 years... just when i was pregnant and i wanted to do something for my baby, i startet to knit again... AND: i succeded! it looked good enough!

because i am a big fan of iceland, i chose to knit something with icelandic pattern of course!

here are my first tries:Collapse )

and so i started to knit more and more...

my first pulloverCollapse )

a good friend of mine saw that first pullover and asked - just for fun - if she could order such a pullover... well, she could!

my second pulloverCollapse )

next thing i tried was a coateeCollapse )

at the moment i knit a pullover for my nephew, but i don't have a pic of it...

my son with pullover and cap - together with my husband =)Collapse )

a bit about myselfCollapse )

salisya: Setesdal

I am currently working on Setesdal a Norwegian pattern from Peer Gynt.

This happens to be my first Nordic style sweater. I have lived in So. Cali all my life and never needed to knit sweaters. Now that I'm living in Norway I see a new challenge in my knitting style.
