Selbu Knitting

I was besotted with lace knitting all through the spring, summer and fall. But the winter weather is upon us (the wind chill readings today hovered around -10 degrees Celsius!) and I have the urge to return to stranded  knitting. There is something especially comforting about using the same patterns and designs to produce warm clothing that women around the world have been knitting for well over a hundred years.
