Norwegian Knitting and Purling

I just learned the best technique, the one that will make that k1p1 rib just fly.

Norwegian knitting seems to be basically continental knitting.

Norwegian purling is done with the yarn in the back, instead of in the front like it is for English and Continental knitting.

Norwegian television had a “Slow TV” show featuring people knitting for hours. I actually really liked it. They made a sweater from start (the wool on the sheep!) to finish in 8 hours.
