    I love your slow tv!! I’m beginning stranded color work the Norwegian way, thanks you to💜 Please teach us Norwegian words as well each week. The traditional patterns stoke such a chord of interest 💕

    Hi Arne & Carlos,

    Thanks for another great knitting radio (although this video is almost a year old now)! I enjoy this format a lot, because one can do so many other things that would otherwise be boring (like ironing clothes, for example 😉 ) while listening to you.

    I had the opportunity to visit your beautiful country in summer 2004 on a cruise (though it was not with Hurtigruten, unfortunately) to Iceland, Spitsbergen, Jan Mayen (just passing by that island), the North Cape and some of the Norwegian coast. We called, among else, at Ny-Ålesund, Honningsvåg, Tromsø, Geiranger (resp. Hellesylt before) and Bergen. The whole cruise was a dream! It was a classic cruise btw, nothing with big parties or even casinos. I dislike those noisy cruises myself – I want to learn about the country I'm visiting.

    I went on a day trip with a tour group from every port of call, so I saw at least a little bit of amazing Norway. We were visiting the North Cape at the end of June and we were lucky that the point of a giant, wedge-shaped cloud was in front of the midnight sun. It looked so intriguing! Like a huge ship of the skies was passing it by.

    When we were leaving the Geiranger fiord and passed by some of the villages along the way, the captain of our ship was given a hand-knitted Norwegian sweater and a package of homemade cookies by one of the inhabitants of the village (unfortunately, I don't remember which one it was). They said it was a tradition there to do so. The captain wore the sweater the next day, so we got at least to see that. It was beautiful! And he said the cookies were delicious 😉 .

    I have so many fond memories of that journey and I hope I will be able to go again one day (maybe with Hurtigruten then 😉 !).

    Hi both, I don’t think anybody is doing other things when watching you podcasts! If they are anything like me they will be transfixed , glued to the screen and hanging on to every word you say just for fear of missing something.
    I love your new hat design but can you tell me if there is a foolproof formula on the yarn allowance for the tail for “ long tail cast on”? I just never seem to allow enough. Many Thanks Angela

    My cousin and I went to Norway back in 2016 wanting to see the fijords and landed in Oslo.
    We stayed there for 2 days and tried to plan our visit but the train/plane ride to Bergen was sooooooo very expensive that we had to fly back home without doing anything. We were so mad and upset.
    Bus ride alone was a lot more expensive than our whole trip to Norway.
    Needless to say, we were livid flying back home and I am still upset I couldnt get to see the fijords

    I am saving up to one day go on the voyage with you guys! Sounds like a lot of fun. My husband would love it to. He's Norwegian and Native American. I think he would love to see where his dad's family came from.

    Knitting/crochet/etc. is basically passing one loop through another. Your methods make it look like magic!

    Very relaxing, people who don't get motion sickness don't know how lucky they are I would love to go on a voyage like that but I would spend the whole time face down on my bed trying not to move so I wouldn't be sick 😅 The thing with scones is you have to eat them fresh from the oven or they're dry and horrible 🙂 .

    Unless you have lived in the mountains at altitude, you can't appreciate how long it takes for water to boil. Cooking and eating hot food can be a challenge above 5000 ft. My great grandma taught me the heated rocks trick. Sometimes I miss those snowed in quiet days.

    I could listen to you talking for hours – make a video on any subject and I will be there! x Just had a look at the boat's route along Norway's coastline….wow! I want to take that trip someday. Thanks again for another wonderful broadcast.

    i can knit that way or color for each hand. I was once left handed, i found out, but when a child someone made me be right handed, probably in school. I didnt realize it til adult, rather do things from the left sid, lifting for example, put left shoe on first. so knitting with bothe hand, color in each hand doesnt bother me. In old days, for some reason, people didnt like you to be left handed. I dont know why. I am adopted, found out thru dna testing, i and my brothers and sisters are scandinavian 34 percent, irish, finish, jewish. we favor Arne alot, the features of Norway. the facial features eyes etc

    Hi, thank you for the tutorial! I have a question: since knitting in circle makes a stockinette it rolls. Can you suggest how to avoid that?

    Would love to hear about traditional knitting .

    February 23, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    Loved the chat and the hat.😍 I’m afraid of snakes and electricity. 😟😟😟 so an eel would be terrifying. 😫😫😫 I will say no more 🌟🌹🌟🌹🌟🌹🌟🌹🌟🌹🌟🌹

    I just found you and have been binge-watching for three days. Now it’s 2:45am, and I’m sitting here snorting with laughter over Arne’s plans to remodel the train station into a stately home, and Carlos trying so rationally to talk him back to earth. What a pleasure to find you both!

    I am terrified of snakes and of electricity, at the same time 🙁
    Here in Slovakia we have wooden churches as well, without any metal nails or anything like that. And traditional Slovak embroidery is beautiful 🙂

    I have been following you both on Instagram for a while, but I am new to your videos! Absolutely loved everything (the conversation and pattern) I haven’t tried colorwork in a few years, but I am excited to try the Norwegian style for throwing the yarn. Thank you! ❤️ and Arne, your tension is PERFECT!

    I totally agree with Carlos on this subject. I live in a spacious bungalow and my husband and I are very happy here. You both seem very happy in your home. It comes across your channel as a very comfortable “home”. I emphasise home. These grand houses are far from cosy and are often money pits. Just imagine life in one Arne, there would be no spare cash for yarn🙀.You would be thoroughly miserable. You live in a very beautiful part of the world and can spend lots of your time doing what you love… knitting! designing and gardening.xAngela

    This is so wonderful. I feel like I'm sitting somewhat in your living room, knitting with you. Such a great way to relax and create at the same time. I'm the only knitter in our house and this knitting pod cast is such a great company!
