Hello,
I was on vacation in Alberta, Canada and saw an amazing Dale of Norway sweater in a store and didn't buy it because it was too expensive, and I thought that I could find it when I got back to the states. (see previous posting called OMG Dale of Norway) So I came home hoping to look up Dale of Norway sweaters. Well, I have tried to find it, but I can't find the sweater- either in stores or as a pattern and now I am sad. I tried to find a website for the store (I can't remember the name of the store, but I remember exactly where it is in the hotel) and there isn't one. So I don't know what to do. I feel like I have only been able to access some Dale of Norway sweaters for sale and not a big listing of them. Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

:shrug:
thank you,

v.

Are you looking for a pattern to make the sweater, or are you wanting to buy one in the US?

I would call the hotel, get the name/number for the store from them and then call the store and pump them for information.

And it's not in one of the catalogs on the Dale website?

Well, I have done several searches on the internet both in the patterns as well as sweaters for sale. But nothing looks like the sweater. I think the sweater is not from the most recent year, so the Dale of Norway site is not very helpful. I found a really bad photo of what I think is the sweater, but I can't tell because I can't blow up the picture or zoom in. So when I searched for the name of the sweater (I think it is called Nina or Nina Grieg), I found two pictures of Nina, but neither of them is red- which is the sweater I saw. So I am not sure where to go next. Seriously considering calling the concierge at the hotel and having them assist me.

At this point, I wouldn't mind buying or knitting the sweater myself if I could find the pattern or the actual sweater.

My DH thinks I should try to graph out the sweater from memory and try to make it. Hmmm, we'll see.
