Wonderful Norwegian 2-colour patterns

So often in museums it's the textiles departments that suffer that fate of never being seen or studied. Kept locked away. Most collections when budget allows, are properly catagoried and attempts at preservation are made. Othertimes, they remained overlooked even by the staff. This book is a treasure, and to read of the author's adventure into just how she came to write this book give me hope. Currently trudging away as a returnee to college studies, I hope to find a way to transfer into studies that will one day allow me to discover opportunities such as the one T.Shea was able to. She was willing to take a chance and make a change, during the process she was able to shed light on a neglected part of the past, cottage industrys involving knitwear. Thank you! ( )

Vakre mønster frå ein norsk strikketradisjon:

Dette er den første store boka om den vakre og tradisjonsrike selbuvotten. Selbuvotten har halde seg like populær i fleire tiår og blir strikka av stadig nye generasjonar. Her får du vite alt du treng for å komme i gang med å strikke vottar i ulike mønster og fargar.

Boka inneheld både kulturhistorisk stoff om dei kjende vottane og ei enkel innføring i strikketeknikken. Over 30 oppskrifter til ulike selbuvottar gir deg framgangsmåten trinn for trinn. Boka er illustrert med fargebilete og mønsterskjema.
Oversatt og tilrettelagt av Annemor Sundbø
