I am from Norway and have been knitting for about 43 years, learned from my mother who was a great knitter. I am however relatively new to using the Internet for knitting purposes, only since last year, when a friend introduced me to Knitting Daily. And I got hooked..
My favorite thing to knit has always been "Norwegian" sweaters. But with Knitting Daily and subsequently starting to subscribe to Knits and Piecework, a whole new world has opened up, and I have become hooked on lace. I usually keep 4-5 projects going at the same time (which also include crochet and the occasional cross-stitch project), so I can switch when I get bored!
I currently live in Reykjavik, Iceland, because my American husband works here. Needless to say, I have lots of time to knit as I am not working myself..
