Such fun holding and playing with them.We had a nice warm
sunny day. I also got to see her art yarns she is working up for
the show. She will have lots of yarn and roving. I am sharing
a booth with her and we will be right inside the door. I will have of
course my knitting patterns and 4 Norwegian linen and wool teppe.
I just finished weaving them only need to hem the ends. Also some
mug rugs from the samplings.

This is my newest pattern. It will have more pale
turquoise at the top. The body will have similar small
patterns from Norwegian weaving patterns.
This is my inspiration! My friend Berta Styve Lid in
Norway chased down a 20 year out of print book on norge
åklær by Anne Grete Sandstad. Mange takk to Berta!!!
I have already used this book so much!! You can see they used the
pale turquoise, red orange and darkest brown. The patterns
are small geometrics of repeated 6 or 4 shafts. It has NO
carries! I also used the Enkelt skillbragd patterns in here for
my teppe above. Fantastic!! Beautiful book!!!
I am also giving a 1 hour talk on knitting with stranded patterns
at the Wool Market Sat March 28 in Prineville Oregon. Please
come!!! It is at the fairgrounds all day!!!
