Dagrun's Luggar Sock Class with Roxanne Richardson: Sunday, March 26, 2:00 - 3:00pm via Zoom
The Mystery of Dagrun's Luggar: An exploration of how a vintage Norwegian sock was knit
Instructor: Roxanne Richardson
Dates: Sunday, March 26, 2:00 - 3:00pm via Zoom
Join Minneapolis designer, teacher and podcaster Roxanne Richardson for an exploration of her new free sock pattern, Dagrun’s Luggar!
Back in November, Roxanne encountered a sock knit by Dagrun Skårsmoen, who was born in 1921, and lived her entire life in Trøndelag, Norway. A relative of Dagrun wanted to knit socks for her family like the hundreds of pairs that Dagrun had knit for her family. Roxanne's offer to help solve a sock knitting question that seemed fairly straightforward led to a fascinating discovery of a technique rarely used in knitting, never mind sock knitting. As she poked and prodded at the sock, Roxanne gained insight into the how a Norwegian sock knitter of a previous generation knit her socks, using techniques familiar to modern knitters, but executed in quite different ways.
