Den Gamle By, part 2

Knitting, spinning and weaving were very important in Scandinavia in the past. All of the open air museums that we visited had exhibits that featured many of these. Almost every house had a spinning wheel.

Even the more wealthy homes had spinning wheels.



Knitting was also featured in many of the homes.



Dem Gamle By also featured a yarn making factory and a yarn dyeing factory.




And here’s a non-knitting photo that I really like.



As per usual, click on the photo for a larger view.

It was a great trip! We got to see so much. The socks were fun to knit. I'm looking forward to working on them again for Socktoberfest.
