Maria Strikker simply means Maria knits. I am a Norwegian knitter, and I have also designed a few patterns, both for sale and for free. Though my patterns are always published in both English and Norwegian, this blog is mainly written in Norwegian. I am working on adding English summaries to my blogposts, the posts that already have summaries can be found under the tag English. The summaries, where they have been added, are at the very bottom of the blog posts.
