Votter i Norsk Tradisjon
- Someone contacted the museum looking for a book which had something
about Petter Dass-Votten. One of our US knitting experts knew it was
this book. It sounds very interesting.
" There is a little paragraph about Petter Dass-votten on page 116 of
Votter i norsk tradisjon by Ingebjorg Gravjord (Landbruksforlaget,
1986). The mittens were originally in memory of a priest who lived from
1647-1708. The mittens are mostly white with black at the top of the
hand and thumb + diagonal lines of black and white at the wrist. Later
miniature versions were made and sold as "minneting" (remembrances).
There is a a reference to an article about the mittens by Elin Molaug
in Årbok for Lofoten 1985. The mitten book was reprinted recently and
costs around $50. It's a great reference with lots of history and
doesn't appear to have it but they do have knitting books and kits. I'd
like to get the beaded wristwarmers, as if I don't have enough projects
Does anyone know where this book can be ordered from ?
