Hipp Hipp Horrah!
I had to give you a taste of the gorgeous handwork that was on display on Norway's National Day, the 17th of May.
This handsome couple was seen among the crowds at the castle. Many of the men were even decked out from head to toe in hand made finery. I think the woolen cabled socks are wonderful, and I am sure he was glad it was a cool day.
You can just imagine the hours of stitching that went into each of these pretty garments.
Such inspiration for those of us who enjoy needlework! A big thanks to my father for these photos, he was the photographer for this post.
