New Finnish Link
- Good Morning !
I am trying to find useful links for the Nordic knitter. I wrote to
someone I found on a Finnish blog and this is what she had to say -
And sorry for taking some time in replying. It has been a busy week.
Your knitters group sounds wonderful! Good luck with it. I like your
slogan too, you don't have to be Nordic to knit Nordic. Funny!
There are sure a lot of links you could add, and I'll look through my
bookmarks this weekend. But one that I know without looking it up is
Vuorelma, who produces Satakieli, a lovely yarn for mittens and
socks. Nancy Bush uses this for several of her Estonian models, and
it's the yarn I myself prefer to use for mittens. Vuorelma has
international service too, and according to my Japanese friend, a
very fast service, at least for Japan. You can find them at
But, as I said, I'll make you a list for useful addresses.
They have knitting, embroidery, National Costumes, quilting, and more.
Satakieli can be found on www.woolywest.com
It's very nice. I knit a Nancy Bush sock pattern "Ilga" with it and
liked it very much. Karin
