This staggeringly beautiful new book from Norway will ‘pin your ears back’ (as my mum used to say). Nearly 300 pages of charts and photos of these traditional Norwegian mittens and gloves which originated in 1856. Who knew there was So Much to know about this historic design? For instance: photos of 40 different thumb motifs, over 350 photos and charts for mittens and gloves, page after page full of possible cuff motifs, over 60 charts for the narrow vertical divider between palm and back of mittens (!), over 120 palm motifs, etc., etc. Thank you Jane Lippmann, for alerting us to this genuine treasure. The book is written in Norwegian (no English translation), but for knitters, charts, drawings, and photos transcend languages. Hardcover. For knitters wishing for history written in English, add Terri Shea's lovely book, Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition.
