Arnhild's Knitting Studio, Rauma yarns, Selbu mittens & Barnevott
She is the US distributor for Rauma yarns from Norway. She also has written or translated scores of Traditional Norwegian patterns. The latest, which she gave me, is a book of patterns called Selbustrikk. It includes: patterns for votter, vanter, sokker, stromper, luer, and skjerf or in English: mittens, gloves, socks, stockings, hats and scarves. Such beautiful patterns!
Today I helped Arnhild fill some orders and learned how to make the invoices on the computer. It is going to be so fun to learn about her business. We are hoping that I can take over for her when she is gone to give workshops and classes. I think I have a bit to learn yet though.
Arnhild also gave me the new book by Terri Shea, Selbuvotter It is about the traditional Norwegian mittens from Selbu. This is a very well done book that Arnhild will be selling to shops. Ask your local yarn shop about it!
Now my first assignment from Arnhild came with yarn. Two skeins of Rauma Gammelserie Strikkegarn, one black and one white. The pattern I am going to make is #10 in Selbustrikk. It is a Barnevott or Child's Mitten. Click on the picture for a closer look.
So I have yarn, needles and pattern. I'd better get started!
