It is in my opinion. I guess I have been slow about making the post about the knitting book, Håndplagg til Bunader og Folkedraker written by Heid Fossnes, I have been telling you about, because well, it was a lot of work editing the 15 photos to show you!
The book is so packed with exquisite hand made details that it just about killed me not to photograph the whole entire book to show you.
Just hand gear.
I didn't find an English version of the book I am sorry to say.
I really can't decide which pair to make first!
I am going to let the photos speak for themselves...
Even if you can't read Norwegian it shouldn't let it stop you from purchasing this book.
Deciding which ones to share was such a difficult task too! They are all just amazing and the book is a whopping 301 pages long.
Now I just need to get around to finishing up the turleneck sweater I started last winter. I also have some great things to show from yesterday's really fun flea marketing adventure with Melissa and today's sewing bee with Anne Katrine. This weekend was a great for me, to have such nice activities with freinds who love to stitch and sew. I hope my kids get over their colds soon so my life will resume its normal hectic pace and not this frantic mothering pace of getting up at all hours of the night becuase it is so hard to sleep with the sniffles. It will be a long time before I look back at this week and sigh... "oh, those were the days..."
