Oslo yarn shop


My Mom is a very big knitter so when she visited us when we lived in Norway I had to take her to a yarn shop.  This is Tjorven garn (yarn) in Oslo.  It is located opposite the T-banen or Train/Metro station in the Majorstuen area of town.  Knitting is VERY popular in Norway.  

Norway is well known for its fabulous wool sweaters.  And Norwegians love to pass the long, cold, dark, winters knitting!


The sale priced yarn below is 28 Norwegian Kroner which give or take the exchange rate comes to about $6 a skein.


Here are some ads on a tall pole outside the shop.  You can also see a bit of the scene on the street :)


Do any of you also knit?  I have tried it a few times when I was younger but unfortunately I just can't get into knitting.  I guess its for the best since I have so many other projects that need my attention.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Sounds like a fun day at the yarn shop. I love to knit as well but I don't pick it up very often, there are so many projects of every kind I want to do :)

  2. I can just about cast on and off and do a simple knit stitch, but other than that I can't do much else!
