When civil engineer Ingvild Hernes Lunde (@strikkingvild) moved into a new house in 2011, she discovered that her new neighbour (@heimestrikka_) was an eager knitter. When they both had kids at the same time two years later, knitting became a true connector between the two.
As a social anthropologist, 25-year-old Christina Lernes (@minimalist.hippie) is inherently against gender stereotypes. When she returned to the motherland from Manchester pregnant last year, she couldn’t find any clothes that weren’t pink or blue.
It was about time, really, that more men joined the Scandi knitting community, in keeping with the gender balance which the Scandinavians are so rightfully concerned with. But did you know that historically, it was the men who knitted?
