STRIKKEKOS: The Cozy Norwegian Mitten Knitting Showcase
January 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - March 13, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
MITTENS, MITTENS, MITTENS!
Norway has a long, rich history of warm knits and fiber art. Strikkekos is an expression of our love for the knitters in our community, featuring around 30 different Norwegian and Nordic mitten styles made by volunteer knitters from across the Midwest. This exhibit, co-curated with resident knitting mistress, Karen Weiberg—who is a part of a weekly knitting group at Norway House—is based on mitten designs from Nina Granlund Sæther’s book, Mittens From Around Norway. Each pair of mittens will be displayed along with information about the pattern.
The mittens will be auctioned off after the show.
