salisya: Trying Norwegian Knitting

Check it out. I started this yesterday. (March 4th, 2004)

I'm making this sweater for a family friend. My first Norwegian sweater. In NORWEGIAN!!! I can barely speak the language and here I am trying to follow a knitting pattern in one. Wish me luck!

It is the sweater that the woman in the pic is wearing. It is very typical Norwegian called Setesdal. My fil has one just like it. Very old traditional pattern. My dh choose it just for that reason. :)

I would guess it depends on the person.
I LOVE it here in Norway and would never want to move to Cali.

Yet some people have a different opinion.
I have trouble with the language, meeting people, feeling like I fit in, but I have always been a loner in that sense.

I'll post more when I get a chance. I have a few things to do and wanted to touch base first. :)

I suppose those two are two different kind of places.
I've never been to Cali is i don't really know what it's like there.
i'm sure the language will come after a while ^_^ Do you speak norwegian?
and may i ask where in norway you live?

Lets see, what is Cali like? Ummmm really depends on where you live.
I lived in LA area. I had a pretty mellow lifestyle and it seemed a lot more active there than here.
There is always something to do, some place to go, something open and everything avalible.

Norway, to me, has beauty, comfort, relaxation and life. A lot of the comforts arent here and you have to be yourself since there isn't always things to do to hide from yourself. A lot of people are suprised to find I like it better here, but I do.

As for Norwegian, I am horrible with learning languages, but I'm understanding it little by little. I can read better than I can talk or listen. It sounds so much differnt.

As for where I am, I'm on the west-coast Rogaland, Haugesund area. can I ask where you are?

LA must be so much different from where i live lol.
I'm going to Santa Ana this summer to visit my girl.

The states in general sounds very different from here when i hear how she talks about it.

Me, i live in a small city in Telemark.
I like it here allot, a peaceful place really. surronded by the forest.
