I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Our online shopping cart is up!

We did it! The online shopping cart is up and functional now! You can see it at You can shop for Rauma yarns here. All of the patterns are here.

My congratulations go to Philip, my second oldest, who did all of the web work for me! He has put together a beautiful site which I hope will be easy to use too. You will find his name on all of the pages.

Thanks also to Wesley, my 17 year old, who spent time staring at the computer screen to cut out all of the yarn pictures and resize them and the pattern pictures to fit into our boxes.

And Amy, my 14 year old, who did a lot of the data entry for the yarns page. She is a great typist though I think she likes writing stories better than doing data entry.

Oh, and my thanks to Rosie who kept Carl entertained so Mom could work on the web site!

Cant wait!

Hey, so I called Arnhild's studio to get information on wholesale "stuff" and then my phone died on me, so I couldn't leave a message. LOL. Soooo, as soon as I have time I will be calling again.

Hope all is well with you!

Cool, you've got a cart up! I'm ordering some yarn to use with a book from the library (Small Sweaters by Lise Kolstad & Tone Takle, Interweave 1996). If I like the set I make, I may go for that Strikke book!

Janknit--Your email came back to me so I will post the information you requested here.

Thanks! I really like them too.

The pattern is in LVS 3 from Rauma Designs. You can find it here.

I used the Vamsegarn that is listed on this page.
