about me

Norwegian in the USA

My name is Jenny and I am from Sandefjord - a beautiful coastal town in Norway. As a 17-year old I came to Salt Lake City as an exchange student. I loved it here and wanted to come back for college. In 2016 I returned, married an American and never left. I am a mom of two cute blondies, a little boy and girl.

Norwegians love wool, especially for their children. Being outside year-round is instilled in us and we have a famous saying "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing".

My cute grandmother has knitted several outfits for my kids and I buy wool outfits and base layers every time I go home to see family. I wanted to bring a part of my home here and that is why I started GARN.
