Merethe Andersen's Profile
I am a 40-something mother, wife, designer, seamstress, & knitter who can't seem to stop creating things. I am drawn to practical & stylish design.
Growing up in Norway, my grandmother taught me how to knit. I remember that bright orange yarn knit so tightly into a little square, and the patience of my grandmother. My mother bravely let me work on her old Pfaff sewing machine. What amazing skills to pass on! Once you learn, it's with you forever - you can only get better. I am drawn to traditional knitting patterns that are full of culture and history. A lot of what I make comes from my own needs - "wouldn't it be nice to have this", and then I make it. I am also inspired by designs I see around me, and love a challenge to make something new.
