Norske Strikketradisjoner by Nina Granlund Sæther
A thorough presentation of Norwegian knitting history!
In this book, Nina Granlund Sæther has delved into history in search of traces that can tell how knitting techniques came to Norway, spread, and became part of the national history and identity.
The very special thing about knitting is that, with the help of one long thread and two simple needles, you can conjure up fantastic small and large products. It's difficult to find simpler tools than knitting needles. Knitting makes it possible to create comfortable and functional textiles for both everyday life and parties.
With the help of texts, images, and textiles, Sæther documents how, for around 400 years, we have dressed ourselves with knitted garments from the inside out.
