I made these for my friend to display in her shop window. They look great in these traditional colours and the shop front looks very festive!

As the result of a trip to Norway, I was inspired by the beautiful designs that were used in the knitting from Selbu, the home of the now famous “Selbu Mittens”. The museum in Selbu has some wonderful pieces of knitting history. This Christmas stocking incorporates a variation of “spider in the bough” with scroll work both at the top of the stocking and the toe. I saw many examples of these borders in the Selbu museum. They were used in hats, mittens, socks and sweaters.

Worked in bright white and red, the Snow Bird Stocking is a traditional piece inspired by Nordic decorative arts. Birds perch at the top of the stocking, above a field of stars and vines; the stripes on the back side of the stocking are an abstract rendering of bird prints in the snow.
