‘I am Sidsel J. Høivik and I live in Oslo, Norway and my great passion is knitting and crocheting.
I have knitted since I was 4 years old. And I am very passionate about it. I have made designs for most Magazines and yarncompanies in Norway and Sweden since 1990 approx.
I have been working as a handicraft journalist in the Magazine ‘Familien’ for many years.
And I also worked as a designer for Du Store Alpakka in Norway for a period.
I published my first knittingbook in april 2013 “Lekre masker og lekne sting”, by the editorial house Gyldendal.
My second book “Vakker strikk til alle årstider” was published in august 2015, also by Gyldendal. The books are being sold in the Netherlands as well, at the better yarnstores and bookshops.
Recently I have been interviewed by Andrea Doig in the Fruity Knitting podcast, in episode nr. 30. My interview is in the last 30 minutes of the podcast. Here is a link to the interview: http://fruityknitting.com/2017/05/31/norwegian-knitting-s…
In the end of 2016 I was interviewed by Canadian Knittingrobin on her blog:
Her classes and lecture are in English.
Her books and yarnkits are being sold on her own website (link above).
Since about two years Sidsel has her own company where she sells the yarnkits from her designs, some accessoires and the books.
