About

I’m Laurie, and I knit. A lot.

Many years ago, my mom taught me to knit. But it wasn’t until I visited my husband’s family in rural Norway that I literally got hooked on knitting. With guidance from his grandmother {who didn’t speak a word English}, we understood each other perfectly: she taught me to truly love knitting {strikke} and crocheting {hekle}. Sitting in front of the fireplace knitting with her is the definition of Hygge, and one of my most treasured memories.

Fast forward almost two decades, my husband and I decided to bring one of the essential components of Nordic knitting – Norwegian yarn – to the US. I think my husband just thought it would be cheaper to import my favorite yarns ourselves than continue sneaking suitcases of yarn back from his frequent trips to Norway. So here we are, taking one step closer to making these amazing yarns available in the US at a large scale. But for now, we are taking baby-steps, working with Norway’s premier yarn manufacturer, Sandnes Garn, to bring a selection of limited edition yarn kits to the US. First come, first served.
