Hi. I'm Anne.

A knitting designer, a yarn lover, wool lover and color conscious Norwegian, knitting motivator and in love with nature and knitting of all kinds.

 

Short story is that I have knitted since ... forever.

I have designed knitting patterns my whole life, as I always have made my own designs and never ever followed someone else's pattern (apart from 4 times). I have designed for you guys for nearly 10 years now and thousands of people have knit my patterns in Norwegian. Now I am all focused on you knitting the patterns in English - and, in addition to designing, teaching knitting is now my mission. And what can I say? I am loving every minute of it!

There is little I find more inspiring than to motivate YOU to move your needles and create magic.
