Poetry in Stitches
“Solveig Hisdal is not only aware of the knowledge housed in Norway’s museums, she has also learned how to use it. She has visited museums throughout the country, searching eagerly for the treasures that her ancestors left behind. She has found textiles, chests, cabinets and old folk costumes that have later become her greatest source of inspiration. This book is a result of her quest, and it shows how the creativity of the past has inspired her to make beautiful knitted designs. It contains wonderful knitting ideas for almost all occasions, from a child’s christening outfit to an exquisite, knitted bridal cardigan with beads and silk. Whether you wish to be inspired by the beautiful pictures, or knit some of the outfits — enjoy the book!”–P.  of cover.
