It is getting colder, and I think it is time to buy some "garn" as we call the material used for knitting.... I don't intend starting on a huge project, but they had some nice jumpers etc. that looked both nice and warm in the shop I visited.
Now knitting has become trendy again, and many people attend courses all over Norway.
Take a look at http://www.garnstudio.no to see some of the ideas to make.

Oh, I want that reindeer jumper! I once had a big jumper in this kind of warm wool - no reindeers but a traditional pattern. It was so cosy.

Looks warm and woolly! When I was a kid, I 'learnt' the basics of knitting, but I figured that my talents lay elsewhere. Occasionally I admired people putting tedious meetings to good use by having their knitware handy...

These wools are lovely but I need to stay out of the yarn shops. My knitting skills are s-l-o-w

I love that reindeer!

Det ligner en poncho - minder om gode, gamle hippiedage :-D

I admire anyone who can knit. And I believe it's kind of therapeutic as well as useful. I used to get that feeling grooming my Old English Sheepdogs, which of course took hours. And some people spun their wool. Not me!

Although my grandmother knits loads, I have never managed to learn it. Some of my friends knits as well, and I have decided I will buy some garn and strikkepinner and have them knit me a scarf or some mittens! The sweather looks so warm and nice!

I could wear that if you made one for me!
