Norsk Strikkedesign

This is a gorgeous book that I am probably never going to knit anything from, unless I win the lottery, quit web development and become a full-time knitter. Ha! Wouldn't that be nice?

Seriously, though, this is a great inspiration book and I have actually seen the cover model in person last month when I took a color knitting workshop with Linda Marveng at Loop, in London. It was stunning.

Feast your eyes.

Norsk Strikkedesign: A Collection from Norway's Foremost Knitting Designers
by Margaretha Finseth
ISBN 1893063011

Not to worry. In spite of the Norwegian title, the book is entirely in English. Along with the diagrams and instructions, each model comes with a little history on the inspiration that led to it.

If only I had the figure to go with this beauty, I would be really tempted.

Is this adorable or what?

Sorry, no enlargement of the pattern out of consideration for the author.


This one looks fabulous but with all that detail might be a project for a year or more!

Extraordinary detail. Must look out for this very special book.
