Cindy with family

For many years I have dreamed of designing Norwegian patterns to share. I have been knitting since I was 5 years old and began teaching Norwegian knitting to my friends when I was 10.  I had a brick and mortar shop called Norsk Needlework in Wyoming many ages ago. The sign for this shop was painted in Norwegian rosemaling by my father. You can see in the picture (top left of page) that the snow and rain took its toll. During the 10 years of the shop, I knit hundreds of ski sweaters and taught so many people to knit, loving every minute of it. For many years after this I was a cardiac/critical care nurse… but kept on knitting.

I am now retired and have a beautiful small home in Washoe Valley Nevada that my son Paul built for me. We have our own small lake.

I have plenty of room for knitting and weaving. I am also working on some hardanger and teaching this lovely embroidery from Norway.  I will add some hardanger patterns In the future.

In the summer of 2012 I had the great fortune to travel to Norway and visit many places, among them Rauma ullvarefabrikk in Åndalsnes where my favorite Norwegian yarn is made. I was able to see many things for inspiration for future patterns. What a wonderful trip. I am trying to write blogs about this trip and still have a few more editions to finish cataloging my trip:
I apologize, I failed to complete the trip on my blog. I still intend to do it!
