Norway in Japan: Arne & Carlos Knitting Event

We are arranging a wide variety of events at the embassy, and some of the events are about promoting Norwegian culture to a Japanese audience. Today the embassy held a promotion event for Arne and Carlos, who are famous in Norway and abroad for their fancy knitting designs. As a trainee at the embassy I've been helping out at the event with some simple task such as welcoming the guests at the gate:)

Arne & Carlos have just published a new book about knitting which also has been translated to Japanese. 

For their promotion event at the embassy we welcomed among others visitors from various media such as the Japanese Vogue. The interest has been great in Japan, and apparently Arne & Carlos will have to increase the number of printed books already due to the popularity of the book.

Arne and Carlos presented many of the designs from their new book.

Arne and Carlos is also promoting knitting in other countries. The prince of Wales has recently been trying to promote wool as an environmental friendly material, and Arne and Carlos will be participating in his "wool week" later this month. The two of them are traveling the world promoting their cute knitting patterns, and will be visiting various countries until mid-December. Perhaps they'll come to your country too ;)
