Lilli E. vlogs about her adventures in Norway

A while back I posted about my favorite Norwegian knitting designers knitting podcast. Now she has started a vlog to share her other adventures. If you are interested in learning about Norway please check her channel out. She plans to share several things: Things to do and places to see. Weird Norwegian expressions and fun fact Friday’s.


National Siblings Day

Instagram has National Siblings Day plastered all over the place. To me it’s just a reminder that you’ve passed on and you are never coming back. Reminders of our families loss but also those bitter sweet memories. I love you so much Sissy! You were a beautiful blessing every single day of your short life. 24 years is way too young 💔

Nordic Stitches Designs

My Paternal Grandfather’s Grandparents immigrated to the United States in 1881 from Hegra, Nord – Trøndelag Norway. I have family ties to that area dating back to the 1700’s and maybe earlier. I have always been fascinated with that part of my family history. When I learned to knit I set a goal to learn how my Scandinavian ancestors may have knit.

Several years ago I started watching the Nordic Stitches Podcast during the advent season of 2016. I was still deeply grieving the loss of my Sister and getting to a chance to learn about Norwegian Advent and Christmas traditions gave me something positive to think about. It put the joy, spirit and excitement back into the Christmas season.

When Lilli announced the other day that her podcast had needlessly been hacked and deleted my heart broke for her. I can’t imagine how much time and energy she had put into the more than 350 videos she had released. So I thought that I’d share the links to all of her sites to help her restart her podcasting adventure.

*I also want to note that sometime in the near future she will be starting a second video podcast about life in Norway.
