Before my parents came out last week, my mom’s cousin and her husband from Norway went to Wisconsin for a visit. They brought some gifts for us and look what I got:
In Norwegian, Vott means mitten and Votter means mittens. Selbu is located in central Norway and it is where a 16 year old girl named Marit invented this style of knitting around 1850. I would love to visit Norway someday!
Thank you Berit & Per for the lovely mittens!
