Born in Norway – from an early age I was fitted out in my mother’s designs and developed a fashion interest. When old enough to draw, I created my own designs and I discovered knitting. I had learned to knit by the age of ten, but did not become an addict until years later, when I took my revenge on my crafts teacher by knitting a Fairisle coat.

Failing to meet my own exacting standards, I opted for a more secure college course – business management – and neglected my knitwear design interest. After years of studying and working for architects I had a career change and returned to Oslo.

My knitting projects became increasingly ambitious – sweaters and jackets had to be designed by an acknowledged designer to attract me. I returned to London, married an Englishman, and started work for Rowan as a Design Consultant at Peter Jones. I assisted customers on their pattern and yarn choice and professional designers on their workshops. With a direct line to the design department and access to all their yarns in addition to being part of the such an acknowledged yarn company I was in yarn heaven.

Then I discovered that an even bigger yarn heaven had opened in Islington, in London. Developing workshops for Loop was my ticket to it. Fairisle, Lace Knitting, Knitting Bonanza, Professional Finishing Techniques and Knitting for Improvers were held at the new shop. After more than 5 years of work at Loop, I left summer of 2011 to concentrate on finishing my Norwegian knitting book, ‘To rett en vrang. Designstrikk’ published by Cappelen Damm in January 2012.

Delighted to be back in my beloved Norway with my English husband, I continue to design, proof read knitting books & magazines, translate patterns and hold workshops.

If you like my designs, please join us, the group is simply called Linda Marveng.
