About the event
Spend 3 satruday afternoon's learning stranded knitting with Kirsten West, a Danish knitter. pattern writer, and yarmouthport resident! Students will knit a two color Norwegian Fana pattern hat. Class meets, March 5, 12 and 19.
Kirsten, a native of Denmark, was born and raised on the island of Fyn, where farming, fishing, "hygge" and knitting are still a way of life. Kirsten learned to knit at an early age from her mother Marie, who was an expert knitter, sewer, embroiderer, and bobbin lace maker. In the mid-1980s Kirsten co-founded Nordic Artisans, a boutique mail-order company that imported artisanal Rauma yarn from Norway. Now living in Cape Cod, Kirsten is making her knowledge, skills, patterns, and products available once again. Come and learn from the master knitter herself and enjoy some genuine Danish Hygge at the same time.
