It has finally arrived - the knitting book I preordered some monthes ago - "Norwegian patterns for knitting" by Mette N. Handberg.
I have been waiting for that book, I tell you! I have been really curious to see, if it was as good as I expected.
The first time I became aware of the book was because of the Elk sweater. A lovely pattern which I found on ravelry - and it looks much better than it sounds! An elk sweater...
You can see a bit of the elk chart above.
The pattern had originally been in a Norwegian book called "Maske for maske", but sadly it was no longer available. Luckily I found out that the book was going to be republished in English, so off I went to Amazon and preordered it right away.
When it arrived, I saw that there were many more fantastic sweaters and cardigans in the book than I had imagined. I absolutely adore the one with the patterns in different shades of grey (next to the elks!)
And this one which is a hunter's sweater. It even comes with a recipe for a hat and a pair of mittens.
My husband would love to have all the three models I have mentioned...hmmm.
I'm definitely not dissappointed by this book!
