About me

Hello & welcome to my blog

my name is Norman and I have been knitting for 30 years+. I live in Munich, Germany, and I created this website to share my love for this amazing hobby and help you learn knitting, finding unique patterns, and resolving your knitting problems. I love digging through old knitting books and especially recreating ancient Bavarian knitting patterns and techniques.

Why did I start this blog? At the beginning of 2020, with the onset quarantines all around the globe, I was suddenly faced with lots of free time at home. You see, my other passion is traveling (here’s my travel blog), but that suddenly came to a very abrupt halt. So, I figured, what better time to finally start that knitting blog? A lot of my friends asked me to help them get started and I decided to put this material online.

I also want to show the world that knitting is a hobby for all ages, men, women, children and everything in between and beyond. Throughout my years traveling I came across amazing knitting communities around the world – each and every one with unique patterns, techniques, and quite amazing traditions. I also want to give the diversity of this hobby a home.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me in case you have got any specific questions.
