Jeg ser alltid frem til pakker fra min mor i Norge.
A sweet letter and a project for accouterments for the NVO's bunad...
What's a bunad you may wonder?
It's the Norwegian National Costume.
Mor sent the kit for the NVO to make the strømpebånd that goes
with the bunad that previously belonged to my father...
The yarns will be woven to create the strømpebånd.
What is a strømpebånd you may also wonder?
It's a type of colorful ribbon-like garter worn at the bottom of the NVO's bunad pants (knickers).
That's the NVO on the far left in my father's bunad from Nordmøre.
I like his silly smile.
I like that he will wear my father's bunad with pride.
I like that the strømpebånd will soon complete the look. :-)
Takk skal du ha for pakken mor!
